‘Friends’ cast’s acting successes, flops since beloved NYC-set sitcom

No matter how much you love “Friends,” at some point, you’ll have to wake up and smell the Central Perk coffee: Much of the cast didn’t fare well in the television acting realm after leaving the Manhattan-set sitcom.

Friday marked 23 years since the iconically NYC series premiered on NBC. It’s been praised long after its 2004 series finale by fans eager to encourage a reboot, though Matthew Perry, Matt LeBlanc and Jennifer Aniston have made it well-known that’s not on the near horizon.

We’re looking back at what the actors have been up to post-“Friends,” combing through their roles that flopped, Emmy nominations and all.
