Matthew Perry Reunites With ‘Friends’ BFF Matt LeBlanc

The only Bing that's missing is Monica! Matthew Perry reunited with his former Friends costar and onscreen best friend, Matt LeBlanc, on Saturday, April 30, in London, where Perry is currently performing in his latest play, The End of Longing.

LeBlanc, 48, who played the affable Joey Tribbiani, attended the performance at the Playhouse Theatre to support his pal. "Went to see The End of Longing last night and ran into this dude," LeBlanc wrote on Instagram alongside a photo of himself backstage with Perry. "He and the cast were great. Way to go bro."

Perry, 46, who was sporting a bit of scruff that night, portrayed the sarcastic, sharp-witted Chandler Bing on Friends. He and LeBlanc starred opposite Courteney Cox (Monica Geller), Jennifer Aniston (Rachel Green), Lisa Kudrow (Phoebe Buffay) and David Schwimmer (Ross Geller).

In the sitcom, London had significant meaning because it's where Chandler and Monica started their fling — which eventually turned into a full-fledged romance. The two characters, who initially started off as close friends, ultimately tied the knot on the series.

This is one of two notable Friends reunions to recently take place. Just this past February, five out of six of the now-famous core cast members reunited at NBC's special honoring TV director James Burrows. The only star who couldn't make it to the Hollywood taping was Perry, who was in London to work on his play. However, LeBlanc made sure to give an endearing shout-out to his old pal during the cast's sit-down chat with Andy Cohen.

“Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. We’re not all together. There’s one missing,” LeBlanc said of his series' sidekick. “We wish he was here. Matty, we miss you.”
