Season eight of Friends did a lot to increase the number of members in the ever-growing Friends of Friends club. It included Brad Pitt as Will Colbert (co-founder of the I Hate Rachel Green Club), Alec Baldwin as the over-optimistic Parker, Debbie Mazar as pregnant and profanity-spouting Doreen and Marla Sokoloff as Joey’s youngest sister Dina, to name just a few. And with the pending arrival of Emma, Ross and Rachel’s baby daughter, the door was opened to many baby-related storylines that would continue into season nine, adding Freddie Prinze Jr. (as sensitive “many” Sandy) and Melissa George as “hot” nanny Molly. As Emma’s impending birth approached in season eight, it provided Daytime Emmy-winning soap opera favorite Rena Sofer (General Hospital, The Bold and the Beautiful) with the chance to join the Friends of Friends.
