New Generation “Friends”: 12 Stars Who Could Be Cast
Reboots of popular television shows are nothing new and these days bringing back beloved programs is all the rage. Whether trying to recapture the original premise or starting anew with the next generation of the show’s characters, there are more than just a few series already reliving their own rebirth or ripe for resurrection. Friends is still one of the most popular shows to ever hit the small screen so it wouldn’t be surprising to hear about a reboot in the works and, if that happens, here are 12 stars who could be cast now if Friends got a reboot.
12. Chloë Grace Moretz
Chloë Grace Moretz has been working steadily in the business since she started as a young little thing grabbing bit parts before moving up the ladder and getting roles that were bigger each time she landed a part. Nowadays, she’s in high demand and appeared in six films in 2014 alone. But if Chloe was looking to make the move from film back to television, then perhaps a role in a Friends reboot would be the perfect opportunity for her. Ideal part for Chloe on a Friends reboot: the new Rachel (if they stay with the same characters) or an older Emma, ya know, Ross and Rachel’s daughter (if they want a current show).
11. Devon Aoki
If the makers of a Friends reboot wanted to add some diversity into the cast (which they most definitely should) then Devon Aoki would be a name that would have to be added to the list. Appearing in films like 2 Fast 2 Furious as the street racing Suki, Devon’s pristine gorgeousness and undeniable charisma makes her another actor who would make an ideal Rachel-esque figure. Devon had been cast as Tatsu Yamashiro in season 3 of Arrow, but a scheduling conflict had the role going to Rila Fukushima instead. Maybe that means Devon is available for a well-timed Friends reboot.
