Friends. The world's best sitcom. The TV show that gave us the poking device, Ugly Naked Guy, Gunther and ROSS GELLER, AKA THE WORST HUMAN OF ALL TIME. Can you believe it's been gone for 13 years?
Right when it first got going it was ALL about Ross 'n' Rachel. Rach ended things with Ross, then started up a romance with Russ (Season 2, Ep 10) - who looked and sounded SO identical to her ex, the gang could barely look at him.
But who played the dulcet-toned dweeb duplicate? Was it David Schwimmer wearing kick-ass prosthetics? SOME PEOPLE ARE STILL CONFUSED:
The show's credits cited an actor called 'Snaro' playing Russ.
So it wasn't ever confirmed, but come on, look at him, that is Schwimmer, right? You'd swear on your hairless Sphynx cat's life... wouldn't you?
We did some digging, and for all those still wondering, it WAS Schwimmer with a fake chin (and heeled boots, it looks like).
'Snaro' was Schwimmer's lil' trick to keep the fans guessing and writer David Crane joked that Snaro was his Croatian friend. It later turned out that Snaro actually was a tribute to his friend, as well as David's alias. There you have it, people, you can sleep soundly tonight!
