In the infamous Friends episode, “The One Where Ross Got High," Ross has to confess to his parents—in the middle of Thanksgiving dinner—that he smoked pot in high school. After watching this episode for the one-billionth time, it occurred to me that there are actually a good handful of times throughout the ten seasons of Friends where we get the privilege of seeing Ross under the influence. Here are the four times Ross got f---ed up: 1.The One Where Nana Dies Twice When Ross and Monica’s grandmother passes away, the gang goes to her funeral. Ross walks into an open grave and lands on his back. Ross' mom gives him her pain killers (presumed to be Vicodin or another opiate), and he gets very, very messed up on them. 2.The One With Ross’ Sandwich After his second marriage fails (virtually as soon as it starts), Ross is on edge. »

Now in its fourth series, the Anglo-American show-within-a-show has got looser, broader, dafter, ruder – and as unmissable as Matt LeBlanc’s greatest hit
We’ll probably never get a Friends reunion, mainly because the cast are all mind-bogglingly rich, and they’re all doing pretty well for themselves anyway.
Of course, nobody will ever match the divine ascendance of Lisa Kudrow (everyone loves The Comeback, but if you haven’t binged on Web Therapy yet, then what is wrong with you?). David Schwimmer has been having a dignified time of it on Broadway and as a director. Matthew Perry has fun lurching from cancelled show to cancelled show, picking righteous fights with Peter Hitchens as he goes; Courteney Cox enjoys median success with Cougar Town; and Jennifer Aniston has forged a stellar career as a professional Jennifer Aniston.

This just in: Sarah Paulson is the cutest person on the planet. She's also just like us, at least in terms of girl crushes. With American Crime Story, Paulson has a tough job ahead of her. Not only is she tasked with playing a real, living person, but also a person who Tina Fey has already played/parodied perfectly on Netflix's The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. The FX drama, from executive producers Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, follows the infamous murder trial of O.J. Simpson. Paulson plays prosecutor Marcia Clark, and is joined by a cast that includes Cuba Gooding Jr., John Travolta, David Schwimmer, and Selma Blair, just to name a few. Fey's hysterical portrayal of a »
Oh. My. Gaaaaawwwwwdddddd. Paul McCartney almost guest starred on Friends. This is not a drill. Paul McCartney. From The Beatles. Almost guest starred. On Friends! This is brand new information! When the iconic sitcom's Emmy-nominated casting director Leslie Litt spoke to the Huffington Post, she revealed that she had tried extremely hard to get The Beatles musician to come on the show for a very specific role. Remember the one with the wedding in London? You know, that disastrous ceremony where Ross (David Schwimmer) said his lobster Rachel's (Jennifer Aniston) name instead of his bride Emily's (Helen Baxendale) name? Yeah, Litt wanted McCartney to play Ross' »

While Ryan Murphy’s television career thus far has been squarely set within specific genres like the musical Glee, the “horror” American Horror Story, and the upcoming horror-comedy Scream Queens, he’s now setting out to tackle something wholly different: true crime. American Crime Story is a new anthology series set up at FX, executive produced by Murphy and his partner Brad Falchuk, as well as Nina Jacobson, Brad Simpson, Scott Alexander, and Larry Karaszewski. The idea is to take on famous true crime stories, and the first season’s topic is decidedly Ryan Murphy-esque: American Crime Story: The People V O.J. Simpson. The first images from the series have been unveiled, and they’re certainly something.

American Crime Story, FX’s hotly anticipated upcoming crime drama will tell the story of the trial of former NFL footballer-turned-actor Oj Simpson (played by Cuba Gooding Jr.) who was arrested for the accused double murder of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman in 1994.

Selma Blair in character as Kris Jenner is everything! Just a few days after it was announced that Blair would be portraying Jenner in Ryan Murphy's upcoming FX series American Crime Story: The People V Oj Simpson, we are now getting our first look at the 42-year-old actress channeling Jenner back in the early 1990s. The on-set pic shows Blair wearing a black skirt and jacket (shoulder pads and all!) with Jenner's signature short brunette hair. Blair's resemblance to the Keeping Up With the Kardashians matriarch is uncanny, no? But that's not all. David Schwimmer was also photographed on set dressed as Jenner's ex-husband Robert Kardashian. The Friends actor donned a formal suit and had a »
