David Schwimmer indebted to Friends
Actor David Schwimmer has admitted that he will be forever indebted to Friends, the comedy TV series that launched the career of the star. David played palaeontologist Ross Gellar in Friends for a decade before the show came to an end back in 2004.
Schwimmer explained, “It’s something that I will forever be grateful for. First of all, it was the best job to ever have. The actual work on set was so much fun, and the collaborative spirit of the show - not only between the actors, but with the writers and the directors… hands down, the best job I’ve ever had.”
David also revealed how the cast of Friends have not been together since the show closed. “The person I’m most in touch with is coincidentally Matt LeBlanc, who is doing a show here now - Episodes. But I live in New York and everyone else lives in Los Angeles. I don’t think we’ve all been in the same room since the show ended. We have such different lives - we’re all scattered, we have families now… it’s hard.”
David Schwimmer and his wife Zoe Buckman became parents for the first time seven weeks ago, when Zoe gave birth to their daughter Cleo. David Schwimmer once again lends his voice to the character Melman, when Madagascar 3 hits the big screen 8 June 2012.
