The actor, who played Ross Geller, also revealed that he is going to meet the other cast member after ‘many years'. “I will be getting on a plane soon and shooting for Friends Reunion next week. I am going to see everyone next week for the first time in many years.” he said.
According to the Variety report, each of six stars is reportedly getting paid $2.5 million for shooting the special episode. The reunion episode will be shot at the iconic Stage 24 of the Warner Bros Studio lot in Burbank, the same place where the original show was filmed.
The popular series “Friends” went on air in 1994 and ran for a successful 10 years. Its last episode was aired in 2004.
