Yet Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry, and David Schwimmer will star in their original roles, fans are eager to know who can be among special guests this time. Probably, Brad Pitt will be there due to the fresh rumors about the Braniston reunion after the Golden Globes.
