All of your favorite sitcom actors have joined forces for a new sketch in anticipation of Must See TV: An All-Star Tribute to James Burrows. This ultimate Must-See mashup finds The Big Bang Theory star Jim Parsons in charge of putting together this massive event. But he hasn't done mush to prepare over the course of the last couple of months. In a pinch, and more exciting to play with his army men, the actor calls his friend, Will & Grace star Sean Hayes, and convinces him to pull everything together at the last moment.
This hilarious sketch brings together actors from someof the best James Burrows directed TV shows. Also participating in this fun video are cast members from Cheers and Friends. We even get to see Woody Harrelson spoof his True Detective co-star Matthew McConaughey and his Lincoln commercials. And there's a surprise cameo from Two and a Half Men star Charlie Sheen.
Last month, NBC announced that cast members from several iconic TV shows will be reuniting to pay tribute to legendary TV director James Burrows, for a new TV special entitled Must See TV: An All-Star Tribute to James Burrows. This special has been highly-publicized because it will include the cast of NBC's iconic sitcom Friends, who will be reuniting for the first time in several years. The initial report from last month claimed that all of the main Friends stars will be present at this event, Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer. However, just one week later, another report revealed that Matthew Perry actually won't be in attendance, since he is starring in a new play in London entitled The End of Longing. The actor later confirmed that he will introduce his fellow cast members through a video from London.
James Burrows recently directed his 1,000th TV episode. Over the course of his career, he directed 15 episodes of Friends. The special won't just focus on the Friends aspect of his career though. The two-hour special is being likened to that of the Saturday Night Live 40th Anniversary special that NBC aired last year.
The special will reunite the casts of many landmark James Burrows series. These sitcoms include Taxi, Cheers, Frasier and Will & Grace. James Burrows is still a strong force in television, and stars from his most current series will be appearing as well. These include The Big Bang Theory and Mike & Molly.
