FRIENDS star Vincent Ventresca is more than 25 years after his debut as Fun Bobby.
The 55-year-old actor appeared as the on-off boyfriend of Monica Geller (Courteney Cox) in the first and second seasons of the hit sitcom.
Fun Bobby was always expected to be the life and soul of the party, but most of the time he brought everyone down.
In the first season it was his grandfather’s death that put a damper on Monica’s New Years Eve party, while in the second season it turned out to be an alcoholic and only fun when he’s drunk.
Although Fun Bobby appeared only a few times in the previous seasons of Friends from 1994-1996, Fun Bobby has remained a memorable character for fans around the world.
More than 25 years later, Vincent still has his pretty, chiseled features, but Fun Bobby’s limp long hair has been replaced with a shorter, spiky hairstyle.
Vincent has continued to act and appear on a number of American television series, including Boston Common, Prey, The Invisible Man, and Complete Savages.
Recent roles have included Wicked City and The Fosters, as well as guest roles in Nashville and Criminal Minds.
Vincent previously recalled his experience with Friends, telling The Guardian, “I was impressed by David Schwimmer (Ross).
“Of course the girls were amazing and you kind of fell in love with them. But David was the one I really wanted to like; and he was the one who was least interested in meeting someone. “
He added that he was filming a scene with Matt Le Blanc and Matthew Perry: “If the audience weren’t laughing, we’d be huddling together and Matthew Perry would say, ‘What if we tried that?’ And Matt LeBlanc would say, ‘Yes!’
“And we took another break and made the scene. It was like a soccer game.”
Vincent would later reunite on screen with Friends star Lisa Kudrow in the movie Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion.
Friends is available on Netflix.
