'Friends' To Feature An All-Black Cast in a Zoom Table Read

Gabrielle Union To Host the 'Friends' All-Black Table Read

Gabrielle Union is hosting the all-black cast table read of Friends, alongside Uzo Aduba, Sterling K. Brown and more.

Sterling K. Brown is playing Ross, Uzo Aduba is Phoebe, Ryan Bathe is Rachel, Aisha Hinds is Monica, Kendrick Sampson is Joey and Jeremy Pope is Chandler.

The cast will reimagine the hilarious season three episode "The One Where No One's Ready," where the characters are all chaotically getting ready for Ross' work event. This is the iconic episode where Joey puts on every single piece of clothing Chandler owns.

Friends is not the first show to be re-envisioned with an all-black cast, two weeks prior, The Golden Girlshad a zoom table read with Tracee Ellis Ross, Regina King, Sanaa Lathan and Alfre Woodard.

"Zoom Where It Happens" is what they are calling these reimagined table reads and Friends is episode two in the series. The table reads are in support of When We All Vote, a nonprofit organization aiming to encourage citizens to voter and stand up for their voting rights.

The "Zoom Where It Happens" hourlong event is today, September 22, at 9 p.m. ET. Sign up now for the free Friends table read at mobilize.us.
