‘Friends’ actor James Michael Tyler reveals prostate cancer diagnosis

"Friends" actor James Michael Tyler, who played Gunther in the hit series, has revealed he has been battling stage 4 prostate cancer.

According to media reports, he was diagnosed back in 2018 but it has since spread to other parts of his body, including his bones and spine.

Tyler, who appeared in all 10 seasons of Friends as the manager of the Central Perk coffee shop, said the aggressive cancer has left his lower body paralyzed.

Doctors were optimistic when he was first diagnosed but the cancer started mutating at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Tyler, who is currently undergoing chemotherapy, did not appear in person for "Friends: The Reunion", which aired last month on HBO. He made an appearance via Zoom instead.
