Jane Lynch Tells The Real Story Of How Lisa Kudrow Became Phoebe

Actress and comedian Jane Lynch knows a little something about Lisa Kudrow’s career before Kudrow landed the iconic role of Phoebe in the beloved TV series “Friends.”

In a conversation with HuffPost Live’s Alyona Minkovski about the final season of “Glee,” Lynch both debunked the “Hollywood urban myth” that claimed she auditioned for the quirky “Friends” role and explained how Lisa Kudrow nailed the part.

“Lisa Kudrow got the role [as Roz] on ‘Fraiser’ and was fired,” Lynch said, later adding, “And then Lisa, they cast in ‘Friends,’ and then I mean, come on, that was the role of a lifetime.”

As far as for the aforementioned urban myth, Lynch said, “I read … that I auditioned for that, too” and later added she wished she had gotten that caliber of audition at that time in her career.

‘Friends’ Reunion On ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ With Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox And Lisa Kudrow

Call it “The One Where Some Of The Cast Of ‘Friends’ Got Back Together.”

Appearing on Wednesday night’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” Jennifer Aniston agreed to act out some fan fiction supposedly written by Kimmel — but things took a turn for the surreal when the talk-show host unveiled an exact replica of the sitcom’s famous kitchen for the scene.

Before long, the two are joined by fellow “Friends” Courteney Cox and Lisa Kudrow.

Watch the clip above to see the whole thing.

“Friends” celebrates its 20th anniversary in September, and enthusiasm for the NBC comedy hasn’t waned much despite the fact that it went off the air in 2004.

As part of the celebration, a replica of the show’s Central Perk coffee shop will open for a month in New York City, according to the New York Post.
