The Friends cast is reuniting for a two-hour TV event this month, and not only is it not a new episode, but one friend is going to have to be there for the rest from afar (but no, not from Yemen). On The Graham Norton Show on Friday, Matthew Perry revealed that he'll be participating "remotely" due to a scheduling conflict—he'll be in rehearsals for London play The End of Longing (which he also wrote) when the special is taped on January 24

"It's not the Friends reunion everyone is hoping for," Perry admitted. As of now, the rest of the cast, consisting of Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox, David Schwimmer, Matt LeBlanc, and Lisa Kudrow, are all on board for the special honoring Jim Burrows, a prolific director who's worked on, among other shows, Friends, Cheers, and Taxi, and who recently directed his 1000th television episode.
