Schwimmer Loves Army Roles
Former FRIENDS star DAVID SCHWIMMER is a sucker for World War II projects because he feels he should dedicate his life to paying tribute to the soldiers who fought for freedom. The actor has already played an army superior in hit TV drama BAND OF BROTHERS and now he's playing a war hero on stage in THE CAINE MUTINY COURT-MARTIAL - and he insists it won't be the last time fans will see him in uniform. He tells theatre news website BroadwayWorld.com, "I really feel humbled by the effort of that generation which many of my relatives were (a part of)." The new Broadway, New York play, which opened this week (beg10APR06) fulfils another criteria for Schwimmer's dream role - he loves courtrooms because he's surrounded by lawyers in his family. He adds, "I love the law and the courtroom. I grew up with a kind of love and appreciation for the law."
