Friends cast member David Schwimmer has opened up about Matthew Perry’s death in a tear-jerking Instagram post.
Schwimmer wrote, “Matty, Thank you for ten incredible years of laughter and creativity. I will never forget your impeccable comic timing and delivery.”
“You could take a straight line of dialogue and bend it to your will, resulting in something so entirely original and unexpectedly funny it still astonishes,” he continued.
“And you had heart. Which you were generous with, and shared with us, so we could create a family out of six strangers.”
Schwimmer explained how the photo he posted was from one of his “favorite moments” with Perry. The actor added, “Now it makes me smile and grieve at the same time.”
He ended the post with an iconic reference from Friends.
“I imagine you up there, somewhere, in the same white suit, hands in your pockets, looking around—’ Could there BE any more clouds?'” Schwimmer finished.
Central Perk Coffeehouse Pays Tribute To Matthew Perry
Central Perk Coffeehouse, the once-fictional café frequented by Monica, Chandler, and pals in Friends, has come to life. In order to honor Matthew Perry, Central Perk delayed their opening date to November 14.
The coffee shop includes plenty of throwbacks to the iconic sitcom—including a floor-to-ceiling photo of the fountain from Friends opening credits and historical black and white photos from the original set.
While Central Perk is a must-see spot for fans of the show, the coffee shop’s president, Joe Gurdock, says that the quality of the experience shouldn’t be underestimated.
“This is not a novelty in any way, shape, or form,” Gurdock told People. “This is a real-life, real-world, café that will have high attention to not only the quality of the coffee, and our pursuit of that, but also the food.”
