With Courteney Cox and David Schwimmer suddenly in the news, and Jennifer Aniston never out of it, WTF are the rest of the Friends gang up to?

Aniston? Well, she's always up to something.
The news has been mixed, with one cast member apparently not so thrilled to be associated with the '90s show that made them all household names.
I speak in this case of LeBlanc, who reportedly got into a pissing match with reporters last month, during London Fashion Week. Granted, the report comes from the Mirror tabloid, so take the following supposed rant with a grain of salt:
"I'm not Joey. Don't you dare call me Joey. The papers say I'm finished so don't you call me f--king Joey. I want to leave that all behind. I'm moving on... I'm not Joey. For the last time. I'm not f--king Joey. It's Matt. Matt LeBlanc. Joey's in the past. I'm trying to do something new."
Is he, though? Doing anything new?
He just announced, about two weeks ago, that he has signed on for a Showtime series called Episodes. It starts shooting in January and is said to be a spoof on show business. LeBlanc also says he's going to be playing a version of himself.
As for Lisa Kudrow—who has been with her husband for about 15 years, by the way—she hasn't announced any new projects since Easy A came out a few weeks ago. But she has been making the party rounds. Just a few days ago, she attended a Beverly Hills shindig hosted by—get this—the general consul of France.
That leaves Matthew Perry.
His current situation appears to be a blend of Kudrow's—he attended a Lili Claire benefit luncheon a couple of weeks ago—and LeBlanc's. Why? Because, like LeBlanc, Perry has a TV series going on ABC.
The TV series, Mr. Sunshine, is currently shooting. Perry Tweeted September 26 that he was about to start shooting the third episode the following day. He added, "You guys will be the first to know when we get an air date."
Now that is classy.
