It was a fascinating casting experience. We saw a countless number of actors, but things happened as they were supposed to happen. One of the first actors on our list was Matthew Perry to play Chandler, but he was doing a show called LAX 2194 [a Fox pilot about baggage handlers in the year 2194], so he wasn’t available. We brought other people in.
It’s kind of amazing that of all the people who they thought should tell the story of the future, they picked baggage handlers.
“Matt Perry plays Dennis XL4000, who’s finding out every day that while things have changed a lot in the past 200 years, people still have the same old baggage. FOX this fall!”
