Friends fans, rejoice! Fifteen years after the show ended, we finally have an answer to one of the series's biggest questions—and no, it has nothing to do with what Chandler Bing actually did for a living or how they afforded their incredible New York City apartments.
Thanks to some serious sleuthing, a Huffington Post reporter figured out who the actor that portrayed the infamous Ugly Naked Guy, aka the unattractive fellow who lived across from Monica and Ross's apartments, is. Since he only made two on-camera appearances during the show's run (and both of those shots were from behind), it's understandable why his identity has remained a mystery—until now.
"There's only one Ugly Naked Guy, man, and that was me," Jon Haugen told the Huffington Post. Up until this revelation, IMDB had credited the wrong actor for the role, but thankfully credit's being given where it's deserved.
As you might expect, the Internet went wild with the news—scroll down to see some of the best Tweets from very excited fans.
Friend's fat ugly naked guy is alive, retired and living well here in Seapoint Cape Town - in case you wondered. Happy Monday!— Just Carla (@CarlaSteenkamp) May 23, 2016
"Who played Ugly Naked Guy?" is the question I never knew I needed answering: https://t.co/kH5j5zluey— Lucy James (@lucyjamesgames) June 1, 2016
