Gabrielle Union to Host All-Black ‘Friends’ Table Read


Gabrielle Union is set to host a live reading of an episode of “Friends” featuring an all-Black cast on Tuesday.

Cast members for the event include Sterling K. Brown as Ross, Ryan Bathe as Rachel, Uzo Aduba as Pheobe, Aisha Hinds as Monica, Kendrick Sampson as Joey and Jeremy Pope as Chandler. “Altered Carbon” director Salli Richardson-Whitfield will direct the event, which will take place over Zoom on Tuesday, Sept. 22.

The cast will reenact the Season 3 episode “The One Where No One’s Ready,” which was previously recreated for Jay-Z’s “Moonlight” video in 2017. The episode sees Ross struggle to rally his scattered and scatterbrained friends for an important event at his museum. It’s the one where Joey drinks chicken fat and wears all of Chandler’s clothes, Monica records over ex Richard’s voicemail, and Rachel has a wardrobe crisis before going commando for her boyfriend (before they were on a break, of course).

The event is the second in the “Zoom Where It Happens” series, which previously saw a reading of “Golden Girls” starring Tracee Ellis Ross, Alfre Woodard, Regina King and Sanaa Lathan.

The Tuesday event is in support of Michelle Obama’s When We All Vote, which is described as “a national, nonpartisan, nonprofit on a mission to change the culture around voting by bringing together citizens, institutions, brands, and organizations to increase participation in every election.”

Viewers will need to RSVP for the event here.
