Cutting Room Floor Commentary: Elisha Cuthbert on Her 'Friends' Counterpart...

Just a couple of episodes ago, Happy Endings called out a sitcom that came before it and arguably paved the way for such material to be so widely embraced by its audience. After many critical comparisons, Happy Endings used a doped-up character to point around at the members of his friendship circle and compare them to those characters on Friends-- from type-A Jane (Eliza Coupe) as the "Monica" to Dave (Zachary Knighton) and Alex (Elisha Cuthbert) being the "Ross and Rachel" to Max (Adam Pally) being Fat Joey. But I have to admit: I took slight issue with the assignments-- most notably because I think Alex is the Joey of this group! So when I had a chance to visit the cast on-set this week (full interviews will be available here), I just had to get Cuthbert to weigh in because personally I've been calling Alex the Joey of the group all season, and I refuse to admit I'm the only Friends nerd who analyzes these things so closely!
