'Friends' alum Lisa Kudrow says she was fired from 'Frasier' before landing iconic role: It 'wasn’t working'

While joining her sitcom co-stars Jennifer Aniston e Courteney Cox on Wednesday’s edition of Sirius XM’s “Lo spettacolo di Howard Stern,” Kudrow, who played Phoebe on the beloved 30-minute program, revealed that she was also tapped to play Roz Doyle on “Frasier” but was pulled from the gig three days into filming its pilot episode.

I wasn’t right for the part [o] for the chemistry of the group. So that wasn’t working but I did think, 'Oh, I am not this guy’s cup of tea,'” she said of director James Burrows and his decision to scrap Kudrow for that of Peri Gilpin, secondo Persone rivista.

The Kelsey Grammer-led “Frasier” ran for 11 seasons on NBC from 1993 per 2004. Paramount+ announced in February that a revival series was given the go-ahead with Grammer, 66, set to reprise his role as Frasier Crane.
