The Best Friends Characters

List of the best characters from the TV show "Friends," one of the greatest sitcoms of all time, ranked by fans. The Friends core cast of characters - siblings Monica and Ross Geller, her high school best friend Rachel Green, his college roommate Chandler Bing, and their friends Phoebe Buffay and Joey Tribbiani - became cultural icons during the show's original run from 1994-2004. Since the acclaimed series finale, the stars - Jennifer Aniston, Matthew Perry, Courteney Cox, Matt LeBlanc, Lisa Kudrow, and David Schwimmer - have become superstars in TV as well as film. In addition to the main cast, "Friends" was full of dozens dozens of memorable characters and guest stars who filtered in and out of their fictional, uniquely turn-of-the-millennium New York City. While many superstars appeared as themselves (namely Isabella Rossellini, Charlton Heston, Ralph Lauren, and Sarah Ferguson), others (Brad Pitt, Sean Penn, Susan Sarandon, Gary Oldman, Winona Ryder...) appeared in memorable roles as characters integral to the "Friends" universe. This list counts down the very best and most hilarious Friends characters who fans enjoy seeing the most when they pop up on syndicated episodes.
