Jan. 30 (UPI) -- Former Friends star David Schwimmer says he "really" doubts a revival will happen.

The 51-year-old actor, who played Ross Gellar on the NBC series, discussed the possibility of a reunion on Monday's episode of Megyn Kelly Today after a fake movie trailer went viral.

"Look, the thing is, I just don't know if I want to see all of us with crutches [and] walkers," Schwimmer joked to host Megyn Kelly.

"I doubt it, I really doubt it," he said of the prospect. "But thank you for asking, and moving on!"

A YouTube video titled "Friends (2018) Movie Teaser Trailer #1" received over 8.6 million views this month. Some believed the video, which featured clips of Friends stars in other films and shows, was a real trailer.

Friends starred Schwimmer, Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc and Matthew Perry, and had a 10-season run on NBC. Perry, who portrayed Chandler Bing, said in June that he would say no to a reunion.

"I have this nightmare that we do Friends again and nobody cares," the actor told Variety. "We do a whole series, we come back, and nobody cares about it. So if anybody asks me, I'm gonna say no."

"The thing is: We ended on such a high. We can't beat it. Why would we go and do it again?" he explained.

Kudrow, who played Phoebe Buffay, said on Today in February 2017 that she had reunited with the cast at a private gathering. The actress said she "had such a good time" laughing "nonstop" with her co-stars over dinner.
