[post_page_title]Kathy Griffin vs. Lisa Kudrow[/post_page_title]
Phoebe Buffay is our all-time favorite Friends star, and Lisa Kudrow plays the role so well. However, she nearly lost out on the part to one of her good friends, Kathy Griffin. The stand-up comedienne actually made it to the last round of auditions but was pipped to the post by Kudrow.
Griffin has gone on to become one of the most successful female comedians in America, along with writing a New York Times Bestseller, so she probably isn’t that disappointed she didn’t get the role.
