When lightning in a bottle happens, specifically regarding sitcoms, there’s an eternal fascination with everything involving the show. True story (name the character and/or sitcom!). The shelf life is forever. The stories, characters and the tone often define entire decades, generations and/or certain parts of the country from a treasured moment in time for millions of viewers. And as soon as the sitcom series finale airs, there’s a strange juxtaposition of sadness and uplifting nostalgia from fans.
I know because I’m one of these fans.
There’s a personal investment to learn everything from these shows that was an treasured part of growing up. These facts include interesting tidbits from in front of the camera, as well as from behind the camera.
Just when you thought there was nothing new to learn about Friends…
With this brand new behind-the-scenes story in August of 2017 (series finale was in 2004), it’s safe to presume that a Friends super fan now knows everything about this show in a genuinely comprehensive sense. You could even say a Friends super fan knows Friends like the back of their hand.
Wait, their hand or that Las Vegas blackjack dealer’s hand?
(Double bonus points if you can name the actor who played that Las Vegas blackjack dealer!)

Famed character acting savant Johnny Depp is one of the biggest movie stars on the planet. He’s currently promoting the fifth Pirates of the Caribbean movie: Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. If any of the previous movies in the Disney franchise are any indication, Dead Men Tell No Tales should be a wild, fun movie adventure. And, as part of the film’s promotional tour, Mr. Depp stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! (which isn’t live, but that’s for another day) and revealed his not-so-Hollywood, yet also very Hollywood beginning in Los Angeles.
This living man tells no false tales.
