Seems like David Schwimmer has embarked on a quite challenging project.


  • David Schwimmer, who became prominent to the public thanks to Ross Geller’s role in Friends, will now play one of the leading roles in the Goosebumps’ upcoming second season.
  • The plot will mostly follow Schwimmer’s character and his twin children who will carry out an investigation of four teenagers’ disappearance several years ago.
  • Goosebumps comes as a new version of the 1995 original series, the first season premiered last October on Disney+ and Hulu.

The actor’s career keeps flourishing after more than 20 years since the end of Friends — as Deadline reports, Schwimmer has joined the cast of the second season of Goosebumps and even got one of the leading roles.

The Friends star will portray Anthony, “former botany professor and divorced parent of teenage twins whose world takes a tumultuous turn as he juggles the responsibilities of overseeing an aging parent while having his kids for the summer”.

Given that Schwimmer is leading the cast, there’s also a big possibility of his character’s children being the center of the plot’s attention — at the newly emerged details suggest, the twins will go on a research about four teenagers that had mysteriously vanished many years ago and the more secrets they will uncover, the more horrifying the story will become.

The first season of Goosebumps, which comes as a modern version of the 1995 original show, debuted last October on Disney+ and Hulu receiving mostly good feedback from both viewers and critics. The second season will presumably have nothing in common with the first one, including the characters and the storyline.

Having got most of his international fame from the fan-favorite sitcom Friends that ran from 1994 to 2004, David Schwimmer has taken up other famous projects since.

It may come as a surprise for many, but Schwimmer has given his voice to giraffe Melman in the animated franchise's movies; he recently starred in shows like Intelligence from Peacock and Extrapolations from Apple TV.

Schwimmer also has a leading role in the upcoming comedy drama Little Death produced by Darren Aronofsky. The film premiered at Sundance Film Festival this January, but hasn’t been released in cinemas yet.
