Here’s the crazy part, Vince’s bff Jon Favreau was also auditioning for friends and was considered for the role of Chandler, but they ended up going with Matthew Perry. It definitely worked out for the pair as Vince went on to become an A- list actor and Jon is one of Hollywood’s highest grossing directors.
Unless you’re a die hard fan of “Friends”, there’s no way you can think of anyone else playing Joey except Matt LeBlanc, but did you know the role almost went to Vince Vaughn!?
Vince Vaughn was in the running to play Joey but he was rejected by the casting director. At the time, he was pretty much a no-name actor, although he was coming off a small role in the movie “Rudy”.
