October 9th, 2013 4:07pm EDT
Jennifer Aniston
Jennifer Aniston, arguably the most successful star from the cast of Friends, says she's open to reuniting with the cast of the hit TV show.

Aniston held an interview with James Burrows, who directed the pilot of Friends and several episodes. At one point the moderator audibly wished for a Friends reunion, and Aniston quickly agreed: "I do too. I'd honestly go back to it if we could, I would."

The cast is split on the idea of making more Friends episodes, however. Lisa Kudrow has said she doesn't have an interest in seeing the characters 10 years later, but admitted she would attend a reu...

Ryan Reynolds Beats Tom Cruise's Record In 'Top Gear' Racetrack Challenge

February 14th, 2012 9:57am EST
Ryan Reynolds
Ryan Reynolds is Hollywood's new top gun after beating Tom Cruise's lap time during a racetrack challenge for British TV show "Top Gear."

The star got behind the wheel of a Kia hatchback for the show's Star in a Reasonably Priced Car segment, which aired in the U.K. on Sunday, and admitted the challenge was frustrating for him because he prefers to ride motorcycles.

Footage of his lap had to be bleeped considerably because he hurled obscenities throughout his drive.

He told host Jeremy Clarkson, "I'd like to think I'm a horrible driver. I ride motorcycles everywhere, so you can just race...

Matt LeBlanc: 'There's No Plans For A 'Friends' Movie'

January 17th, 2012 8:50am EST
Matt LeBlanc
Matt LeBlanc has ruled out a "Friends" movie because he'd rather fans remember the beloved TV characters as they were when the sitcom ended.

There has been much speculation about a "Friends" reunion ever since the hit show went off the air in 2004, but LeBlanc insists a get together is as unlikely as ever - and talk of a possible film is futile.

He insists Friends will never be able to transition from the small screen to the big screen like Sex & the City did.

The actor explains, "Sex & the City is always a single kind of a show, like a film, so it made the transition from television to ...

Hawaii Five-O
After spending time getting to know FOX on Tuesday, I handled three networks a few days later. Friday at the TCAs (Television Critics Association) was devoted to CBS and its two sister networks, Showtime and The CW. All three brought their midseason shows, as well as executive sessions and a CW panel devoted to the "kick-ass" women of their various series. Here's the dish from the Eye and beyond:

CBS Executive Session

CBS President of Entertainment Nina Tassler was on the hot seat Friday morning. She was quizzed on CBS' emphasis on legal and procedural shows- what with three CSI's, two NC...

'Episodes' Advance Review: Making Fun Of The Hand That Feeds You

January 5th, 2011 10:23am EST
Episodes
My week of Showtime previews continues with a look at Episodes, the second new series that the network will debut on January 9 (the first being Shameless). Episodes focuses on a British couple named Beverly and Sean (Green Wing costars Tamsin Greig and Stephen Mangan) who experience culture shock when their successful UK television series is adapted for an American audience. As a fan of many British shows, several of which have been butchered in American translation - in fact, Episodes rings amusingly like the story of the Brit sitcom Coupling - I have to say this is a neat and probably ...

Matt LeBlanc: 'Don't You Dare Call Me Joey'

September 23rd, 2010 8:15am EDT
Matt LeBlanc
Matt LeBlanc is so fed up with fans referring to him as his Friends character Joey he launched into a foul-mouthed rant at reporters on Tuesday insisting the show is "in the past."

The star rose to fame as lovable character Joey Tribbiani in the hit sitcom in the 1990s alongside Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer. LeBlanc went on to film two seasons of spin-off show Joey when Friends ended in 2004, but he has failed to make a mark in the industry following the program's cancellation.

Matt LeBlanc is back on TV with a new series on Showtime. Episodes stars Matt LeBlanc as Matt LeBlanc. The fictional Matt LeBlanc is cast in an American remake of a British series. Hilarity ensues. For LeBlanc, it was the first show that was worth interrupting his private time with family.

“There was a few network shows that came and went that crossed my desk that I said no to,” LeBlanc said at the Television Critics Association fall press tour. “I just took the time, 12 years [of Friends and Joey] every day was a lot. It was a great time but I wanted to take some time off and spend time w...

The cast of the "legendary" program has faced constant speculation they will reunite for a film version of the comedy since it finished in 2004.

Party Of Five
We all have our favorite shows, especially the ones we used to beg mom and dad to let us stay up and watch. Or the shows we watched with our friends every week and discussed the next day in school because it was the most exciting event in our lives. Most of these shows are played in syndication, but the true fans want to know what's going on with our favorite characters now.

Here are the top shows that we'd love to see do reunion specials:

It's been 20 years since "Saved by the Bell," TV's first live-action Saturday morning sitcom debuted. The show started as "Good Morning, Miss Blis...

For some actors, it is hard to make the crucial transition into film as a television star. Especially if you are typecast as a certain character and most people can't think of you as anyone else (for example, Matt LeBlanc as Joey on Friends). Television actors put their careers on the line when they leave their steady jobs to branch out into the film world, and they either make it or they don't. Here are the top television stars who managed to hold their own in the film world.

Some Recent TV Spinoff Successes And Failures

May 12th, 2009 11:29am EDT
Boston Legal
With an eagerly anticipated Gossip Girl spinoff in the offing, as well as a number of other spinoffs and remakes, the 2009-2010 television fall schedule feels awfully familiar. Unfortunately, there's no rhyme or reason as to whether these spinoffs actually fly. For every Frasier, there is a Joey. The winners are shows that garnered critical acclaim and/or cult status. The losers are shows that destroyed the integrity of beloved characters and were generally poorly written and conceived.

Mr. and Mrs. Smith
It is widely acknowledged that workplace romances are a definite no-no; clearly, some famous actors and actresses didn't get the memo. From classic romantic duos Bogey/Bacall and Spencer/Tracy to contemporary pairings like "Bennifer" and "Brangelina", since the inception of cinema, thespians have taken on-set relationships from reel-life to real-life.

Julia Roberts and Kiefer Sutherland's hearts skipped a beat while filming Flatliners (1990). Tom Cruise admired a young Aussie actress named Nicole Kidman and had her cast opposite him in Days of Thunder. The movie Seven ended with Gwynet...

When the television became available in the early 20th century, who would have ever thought it could became such a vital part of pop culture and media coverage? These days the "Boob Tube" still holds power over even the most casual of viewers with its advertising campaigns and storytelling prime time shows.

The television is used to entertain as well as inform, and over the years thousands of shows were created to catch the attention of the public. Only so many shows are able to grab the love and approval of audiences, and even less than that stay memorable after years pass on. Here a...

'Eli Stone' Recap: Visions of the Future

April 11th, 2008 8:56am EDT
Eli Stone
It's a nice foggy day in San Francisco, and it's good to see that. This might seem nitpicky, but "Eli Stone" rarely features establishing shots of the city with the famous fog present, so it's a nice change. The writers don't waste any time moving things along this week, as Eli (Jonny Lee Miller) gets his vision in the first scene. And it's...wait for it...a vision of the future! No, it's not a dark, Sarah Connor-like nightmarish view of a post-apocalyptic wasteland, but hey, it's still the future! Seems like a man named Dennis Mosley (Sterling K. Brown) is quite the popular leader in ...
