“Friends” – A New Book Spilling The Beans
One of my favorite TV Shows, “Friends”, is about to have the closets cleaned out with secrets from behind the scenes.
There is a book coming out on May 1st called “Top of The Rock: Inside the Rise and Fall of Must See TV”, and it has a bunch of “Friends” trivia! Now if you are already a super fan, you may know this already! But I just thought it was too interesting to not pass up!
Some of the trivia in the book talk about how Courtney Cox was originally supposed to play Rachel! And Jennifer Aniston was already set to be on a different sitcom, but changed her mind and went with “Friends” instead!
Before Courtney got the role of Monica, that role was originally cast for Janeane Garofalo. They were looking to have Monica be more of a dark, edgier woman.
Even the shows title wasn’t supposed to be “Friends.” They had a few working titles, including “Six of One” and “Friends Like Us.” NBC almost shot the show down with “Friends” as the titled because they thought it sounded BORING! Boy, would that have felt silly if CBS picked up the show instead!
Can’t wait to pick up “Top of The Rock: Inside the Rise and Fall of Must See TV” Would you read a book about TV Trivia?
