Justin Bieber set to appear on HBO Max Friends: The Reunion special
HBO Max’s Friends: The Reunion special is reportedly set to feature one of the world’s most popular musical acts along with original cast members Jennifer Aniston, Lisa Kudrow, Courteney Cox, David Schwimmer, Matthew Perry and Matt LeBlanc.
“Holy” singer Justin Bieber is said to have filmed a cameo while wearing the “Spudnik” costume that was originally featured in the show’s eighth season finale. The potato costume was originally worn by Schwimmer’s character on the show, Ross. Despite wearing a pretty embarrassing outfit, Bieber was in good spirits and was happy to be involved in the legendary sitcom’s reunion.
“Justin was honored to be involved and didn’t mind sending himself up wearing a ridiculous costume,” a source told The Sun. “It was all run like a military operation to keep details under wraps, and Justin nailed it.”

Directed by Ben Winston, the Friends: The Reunion special is also said to feature LeBlanc recreating the iconic scene where his character, Joey Tribbiani, wears Chandler Bing’s clothes and does lunges.
Clearly, everyone involved in the special, which is set to release on HBO Max later this year. Original producers Kevin Bright, Kauffman and David Crane will return. Meanwhile, the six stars will executive produce alongside Emma Conway and James Longman.
HBO Max purchased the rights to the iconic series, which had previously streamed on Netflix, for $425 million. Each of the six main cast members is said to be making $3-4 million for their involvement in the special.
