Keri Russell and Scott Speedman remain close friends after the beloved TV series Felicity ended nearly 15 years ago. During tonight’s Jimmy Kimmel Live, Keri shared what went down before her Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony earlier that day.
“You know what, I had to do this big star ceremony thing today. I was nervous. But when I come to town, I always see my friends Mandy and Scott from Felicity,” she said. “So I said, come to the hotel, let’s see each other first before we have to do all the scary stuff. And Scott just kept saying, ‘So like when do you do the hands, put your hand in the cement?'”
She added, “Mandy’s like, “It’s not that event.'”
Scott joined Keri later in the show where they further proved that they really do get along after all these years. Scott had an answer to a thought of a possible revival like Gilmore Girls.
“Some people are on really high-class shows,” Scott teased referring to his former co-star’s time on The Americans. “I’ll do it in a heartbeat. I’ll be on Lifetime in no time.”
Felicity aired for four seasons between 1998 and 2002. It’s about the story of a young fresh from high school girl who follows her crush to college to be near him.
The actress was recognized in Walk of Fame ceremony for her critically acclaimed performance in television by Felicity creators J. J. Abrams and Matt Reeve. The Americans executive producer Joel Fields and her co-star Scott were also on-hand for the celebration.
“Getting attention is not her strong suit,” J.J. said in his speech. “She is one of the sweetest people, one of the most wonderful friends, mothers, co-workers that you could ever hope to know.”
Jimmy Kimmel Live airs weeknights on CBS.
