Celebrity Escape Room: Courteney Cox reunites with Lisa Kudrow to escape Jack Black’s house

While it wasn’t quite the reunion most were looking for, Courteney Cox and Lisa Kudrow came together on Thursday night for a very good cause: Red Nose Day.

The Friends stars teamed up with Ben Stiller and Adam Scott for NBC’s Celebrity Escape Room, where they were tasked with escaping from host Jack Black’s house to raise money for Red Nose Day.
