Katie the monkey, who played Marcel in NBC's iconic Friends, has been cast as Ampersand for FX's Y: The Last Man TV show. FX CEO John Landgraf revealed the casting to The Hollywood Reporter, explaining that he recognized Katie while reviewing dailies from Y.
"I recognize Jennifer Aniston, I recognize Courteney Cox and I recognize that monkey!" Landgraf, who worked for a time at NBC, said. "There's nothing like a really experienced actor who knows how to hit their marks!"
Although Katie is a female capuchin monkey, Katie will play a male for Y's Ampersand, as she did to play Friends' Marcel.
FX anticipates to debut Y sometime in 2020.
