BTS, Justin Bieber, Malala And Many More To Guest Star In ‘Friends’ Reunion
Just when you think the Friends reunion special can’t get any better, they release a star-studded guest lineup that may quite possibly be the most ambitious crossover event in history. We’re talking about not one, not two, but 18 guest stars in the long-awaited reunion special!
Fans can expect to see the return of some familiar names and faces, such as Elliott Gould and Christina Pickles, who played Monica and Ross’ parents, Jack and Judy Geller; Tom Selleck, who played Monica’s ex boyfriend Dr Richard Burke; James Michael Tyler aka Gunther; and who can forget Maggie Wheeler, the voice behind Janice’s iconic “Oh My God” exclamation.
Even minor characters like Rachel’s sister Jill Green, played by Reese Witherspoon; Larry Hankin, who played the gang’s annoying neighbour Mr Heckles; and Thomas Lennon, who played Joey’s hand twin, will all be guest starring in the reunion special.

Joining them will be a very random list of guest stars, which includes big names like BTS, Justin Bieber, David Beckham, Lady Gaga, Cindy Crawford, Mindy Kaling, James Corden, Kit Harrington, Cara Delevingne and even activist Malala Yousafzai!
However, the show’s director Ben Winston would just like to assure everyone, especially ARMYs, that the special appearance from BTS will be very brief, so don’t get too excited now!
I want to manage your expectations on this – it’s a really short moment from BTS. They are great of course, but they are one of the interviews, talking briefly about why they like friends. — Ben Winston (@benwinston) May 14, 2021
With so many celebrities in the lineup, you’d think that fans would be satisfied with the choice of guest stars, but there are still some people who are questioning why Paul Rudd and Cole Sprouse were not included in the reunion.
For those who don’t know, Rudd had played Mike Hannigan, Phoebe’s lovable husband while Sprouse, who was still a kid back then, had played Ross’ son, Ben.
What do you think about this guest star list? Do you think they left out any important characters?
