FRIENDS star Vincent Ventresca is unrecognizable more than 25 years after his debut as Fun Bobby.
The 55-year-old actor appeared in the first and second seasons of the hit sitcom as the boyfriend of Monica Geller (Courteney Cox).
Fun Bobby was always meant to be the life and soul of the party, but more often than not he knocked everyone down.
In the first season, it was because her grandfather had passed away which put a damper on Monica’s New Years Eve party, while in the second season it turns out he’s an alcoholic. and that he only enjoys himself when he drinks.
Although he only appeared a handful of times in the previous seasons of Friends from 1994 to 1996, Fun Bobby remained a memorable character for fans around the world.
Fast forward over 25 years and Vincent still has his beautiful chiseled features, but Fun Bobby’s long, floppy hair has been replaced with a shorter, pointed hairstyle.
Vincent continued to act, appearing in a number of American television series, including Boston Common, Prey, The Invisible Man, and Complete Savages.
His most recent roles include Wicked City and The Fosters, as well as guest roles in Nashville and Criminal Minds.
Vincent previously recalled his experience on Friends, telling The Guardian: “I was struck 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 desperately wanted to love; and he was the one who wasn’t the least interested in meeting anyone.”
He added of filming a scene with Matt Le Blanc and Matthew Perry: “If the audience weren’t laughing, we would get together and Matthew Perry would be like, ‘How about we try this?’ And Matt LeBlanc would say, ‘Yeah!’
“And we would take a break again and do the scene. It was like being at a football game.”
Vincent would later reunite with Friends star Lisa Kudrow on screen in Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion.
Friends is available on Netflix.
