Dr. Scott Webster interviewed by ABC – WFAA Channel 8 about ‘Friends’ actor’s prostate cancer screening

Seventeen years after the finale, the reunion transports fans back to Central Perk for a cup of coffee with Joey, Chandler, Ross, Phoebe, Monica and Rachel. The special also includes several guest stars, including James Michael Tyler, who plays Central Perk coffee barista, Gunther. Tyler appeared via Zoom interview during the reunion, which stood out, because other guest stars appeared in person.
