“Friends” – The Cast Then and Now

Richard (Tom Selleck)

Then

In the mid-nineties, Selleck played the role of Richard Burke, Monica’s older boyfriend, starting at the end of the second season of the hugely successful TV series Friends. Richard was a divorced ophthalmologist who was a friend of Monica’s parents, and at first the relationship was hidden from her parents. The relationship eventually ended over Richard’s reluctance to commit to raising a family, though Selleck did make a few extra appearances in later shows.
