Find Out Which Role Paul McCartney Almost Landed On 'Friends'
While Friends certainly had its fair share of A-list guest stars over the years, there's one music legend that the show's casting director really wanted for the series: Paul McCartney.
When the sitcom's casting director, Leslie Litt, spoke to the Huffington Post, she revealed that she had tried to get The Beatles musician to appear on the long-running show. She explained that she wanted him to play Ross Geller's father-in-law when he married Emily Waltham during the two-part season four finale back in 1998.
"I went through his manager and gave him all the details," Litt recalled. "One day, someone in the office brought me a faxed letter written to me by Paul himself!"
"He thanked me for my interest and said how flattered he was, but it was a very busy time for him," she added.
