Marcel The Monkey From "Friends" Is Still Alive And Cast On A New Show

Alright, it’s been almost 25 years since Friends first hit the air and introduced us to one of the most iconic characters of all-time: Marcel the Monkey!!!

Sure, having a monkey sidekick made no sense, but, kids, it was the ’90s!!!

Marcel was actually played by a female white-headed capuchin monkey named Katie, and she bid farewell to Friends during the show’s second season in “The One After The Superbowl, Part 2” episode.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, who spoke with Katie’s trainer, capuchin monkeys can live to 40, and she’s only in her mid to late twenties (so she still has quite a bit of acting years ahead of her).

…she’s been cast as a pet (male) monkey named Ampersand in FX’s Y: The Last Man (which is based on a graphic novel of the same name).

But, just in case it doesn’t work out, don’t worry for Katie!!! She’s actually had a very, very successful career for the last quarter century.

That’s Katie above modeling with a fan!

And now if I could only get a spin-off of Friends where Joey adopts Marcel and they go on adventures together!!!
