Sorry, 'Friends' Fans: Matthew Perry Won't Be At The Reunion

'I'll be there for you,' my ass.

Just when we couldn't BE any more excited about the long-awaited "Friends" cast reunion comes some seriously bad news: one "friend" won't be joining.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Chandler Bing, aka Matthew Perry, won't be at the reunion, set to take place in February. Perry will be in rehearsals for his forthcoming London play, "The End of Longing."

Still, there's hope on the horizon -- maybe? As TIME reports, a representative for the actor, Lisa Kasteler, wrote in an email to reporters, “Matthew may tape something for the tribute." However, she also added the cryptic sendoff, "In other words, this is not the reunion people have been hoping for.”

Yikes -- sorry, "Friends" fans. That one really stings.
