Jon Cryer Reveals He Auditioned For Role Of Chandler Bing On Friends

In an appearance on 'The Late Late Show', Jon Cryer tells James Corden that he had auditioned for the role of Chandler Bing on 'Friends' but didn't get the part due to an unfortunate hold-up.

"I got a call at 3 AM from somebody in Los Angeles who didn't realize there's a little time change," began Cryer. "She had this great script called Six and One."

"I thought this sounds interesting. She said the part I want you for is called Chandler Bing. And I said 'I'm sorry, that sounds stupid,'" he joked.

"The problem was I had to audition the next morning with the casting director who is in the UK. So I had to work on the scene from that time until about 10 AM."

"So I went in and did my best. She packaged up the tape of me doing my best Chandler Bing, sent it to Los Angeles and it got stuck at customs!"

"It's okay, everybody," he said as Friends Pinto and the audience let out a gasp. "It's all for the best."

Obviously, Matthew Perry went on to star as Chandler Bing while Cryer lasted the entirety of the 'Two and a Half Men' run.
