David Schwimmer has responded to reports that Blackpool Police are hunting for a suspect who “looks like Ross from Friends. The Friends star went so far as to make a reconstruction video of himself in a Deli in New York to prove his innocence.
On October 23rd, the police released an image of an alleged thief and people couldn’t help but notice the similarities between the suspect and Schwimmer’s character on the ’90s sitcom.

The photo was bombarded with comments about the crook’s resemblance to the Friends actor. Many people started quoting phrases from the sitcom.
That’s Russ…. Ross’s doppelganger nemesis! 😂😂😂😂 #friends

The police later confirmed that Schwimmer was in The States at the time of the incident, “We have investigated this matter thoroughly and have confirmed that David Schwimmer was in America on this date,” they wrote on their Facebook post. “We’re so sorry it has to be this way.”
Schwimmer confirmed he was in New York at the time the crime was committed. Taking to Twitter, he wrote: “Officers, I swear it wasn’t me. As you can see, I was in New York. To the hardworking Blackpool Police, good luck with the investigation. #itwasntme”.
The tweet included footage of the actor in a grocery store, with a slab of beer and looking dodgily at the camera.
