Jennifer Aniston was appearing on the show to promote her new film, Life of Crime, but couldn't escape her role as Rachel Green on 'Friends'. In a hilarious sketch, she pretends to be completely surprised when Kimmel reveals a replica of the famous kitchen from the show. Kimmel plays Rachel's boyfriend, Ross, originally portrayed by David Schwimmer, in a script apparently written by Kimmel. She feigns irritation at Kimmel's bad writing and attempts to make her wear a Rachel wig he has hidden in the freezer.
Soon Aniston's co-stars Courteney Cox and Lisa Kudrow turn up which delights the audience. Aniston says "You dragged Court into this?" to which Kimmel replies "That's not Court, that's Monica." Kimmel also announces that the characters Joey and Chandler are dead, having been bitten by Marcel the monkey.
The three have not reprised their 'Friends' roles since the show ended ten years ago, but with the decade anniversary of the sitcom's final episode this year, many fans are hoping for a full reunion. The sketch comes as Warner Bros. Television have announced they are teaming up with Eight O'Clock Coffee to create a pop-up coffee bar re-creating the series' Central Perk. James Michael Tyler, who played barista Gunther on the show, is scheduled to make occasional appearances.
Since the show ended, Aniston, Cox and Kudrow have all remained in the spotlight with their film and television appearences. Cox is best known as the star of 'Cougar Town' whilst Kudrow has appeared in films such as Easy A and The Other Woman.
