Remember that big "Friends" reunion that was announced the other day in honor of director James Burrows? Well, it doesn't look like all six cast members of the beloved show will appear at the two-hour tribute, which is set for February 21.

While Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc and David Schwimmer are still set to appear on the upcoming NBC special, Matthew Perry won't be in attendance. E! News reported that he'll be in London rehearsing for his play, The End of Longing, which begins previews on Tuesday, February 2. 

Even though he won't be there in person, Perry reportedly told late-night Brit host Graham Norton that he'll help the gang out from across the pond. "It's not the reunion everyone is hoping for," he said. "The other five are going to be on this special, and I am going to introduce them from London."

NBC's Robert Greenblatt previously expressed an interest in gathering all six friends together despite the obviously hurdles that they've faced in the past. "Hoping that all six of them will be in the same room at the same time, but I'm not sure we can logistically pull that off," Greenblatt told reporters.
