Justin Bieber adds some extra star power to the Friends reunion special after filming a cameo


The upcoming Friends reunion just got an extra boost amid a report that Justin Bieber has filmed a cameo for it.

The 27-year-old pop superstar will be briefly featured in the special while wearing Ross’ iconic ‘Spudnik’ costume, The Sun reported Saturday.

The new experience with the cast in attendance sounds like a dream come true for the Sorry singer.

‘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.’

For his rumored cameo, Justin is expected to recreate a memorable moment from series’ The One With The Halloween Party episode, in which Ross (Schwimmer) arrived at the party wearing a brown potato costume.

Classic: The costume was worn by Ross (David Schwimmer) to a party in season eight; seen with Rachel (Jennifer Aniston) and Phoebe (Lisa Kudrow)

He added a metal bowl and TV antennas as headwear to achieve the punny combination of ‘spud’ and the Russian satellite ‘Sputnik.’

The popular season eight episode featured a hilarious competition between Ross and Chandler (Matthew Perry) who had a similarly bad costume after Monica (Courteney Cox) forced him to dress up as a pink bunny.

The two ended up arm wrestling to see who could win in a strength competition, though neither could initially pull ahead as they were both weaklings. 

Justin’s participation is likely to add to the reunion’s allure after it was delayed several times due to the ongoing pandemic.

The special was originally intended to premiere when HBO Max made its debut, though filming had to be put on hold until recent days.

Some fans were disappointed when the reunion was announced as an unscripted special, rather than a new episode with the actors reprising their roles.
