Sarah Snook reveals which ‘Succession’ characters relate to ‘F.R.I.E.N.D.S’ cast the most – Take a look

The actress, who replaced Jenifer Aniston on NBC’s “Tonight Show,” swiftly outlined the similarities and differences between the popular NBC sitcom and the HBO media thriller.


Sarah Snook, the star of the hit HBO drama Succession, visited NBC’s Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to promote the fourth and final season of the show, but the host also used her visit to get Snook to provide a media-family perspective on the well-known internet quiz “Which Friends character are you?”

On Tuesday night’s programme, Snook was the second guest and arrived after Jennifer Aniston. Fallon brought this up and asked Snook if she had ever met the Friends star, to which Snook replied, “No,” but added that she was a “big fan.” Fallon questioned Snook about which Succession characters resemble which Friends characters the most in light of the cast.

She quickly broke down who’s who, right away saying that Greg (Nicholas Braun) has “got to be Phoebe (Lisa Kudrow).”


Kendall (Jeremy Strong), meanwhile, is Ross (David Schwimmer) because they both have a “sad face,” Snook said.

She compared her own character, Shiv, to Monica (Courteney Cox), “because she’s got her shit together.”

And finally, she said, “Chandler (Matthew Perry)’s Roman (Kieran Culkin); Joey (Matt LeBlanc) is Tom (Matthew Macfadyen); and Logan (Brian Cox) is Rachel (Aniston).”


Fallon was confused by the last comparison until Snook insisted that they were both characters who “the world revolves around…like it turns on an axis.”

Snook also briefly discussed her pregnancy, which she announced at the Succession premiere in New York on Monday night (she has a stepson, she clarified, but “this is my first baby that’s come out of me”).

“There’s a few people that before the premiere last night, I was like, ‘Everyone’s going to know in a moment that I’m pregnant. And there are some people that I haven’t told,’” she recalled, before joking, “So Mom, Dad — (Laughs.) No, friends and other people that I haven’t had a chance to get on the phone with.”

Succession’s fourth and final season debuts on HBO on Sunday.
