Gunther From ‘Friends’ Looks Totally Different These Days


If you’re a Friends fan, you surely remember Gunther. While he wasn’t supposed to end up being a recurring character, he ended up being a fan favorite and appeared in many episodes of the sitcom. Gunther was played by James Michael Tyler.

Gunther was the manager of Central Perk, the coffee shop where the gang always hung out at. He was known for his obsession with Rachel. These days, you probably wouldn’t recognize him if you saw him in public.

Of course, in Friends, he was known for his bleach-blond hair and clean-shaven face. He has opted for a completely different look since leaving the show. These days, he has brown hair and usually has a full beard and mustache.
