An episode of 'Friends' will be getting a special table read with all black-cast members.
Gabrielle Union and Sterling K Brown along with fellow actors Ryan Bathe, Uzo Aduba, Aisha Hinds, Kendrick Sampson and Jeremy Pope to do an all-Black rendition of the classic NBC show "Friends," according to reports by Variety.
Phoebe will be played by Aduba, while Bathe will portray Rachel and Hinds will act as Monica. "This Is Us" star Brown will play Ross while Sampson will be Joey and Pope will fill the role of Chandler. Union will serve as host.
They're going to re-imagine the Season 3 episode titled "The One Where No One's Ready" — a classic from the third season that features the main characters getting ready (clearly unsuccessfully) to go to a function at Ross' museum.
The "Friends" episode is the second installment of "Zoom Where It Happens," a live table-read series presented by Black women artists with a goal to mobilize voters.
The first episode starred Tracee Ellis Ross, Sanaa Lathan, Alfre Woodard and Regina King doing a re-creation of a classic episode of "The Golden Girls."
