Not so fast with the "Friends" reunion celebration, everyone. 

Though rumors circulated last week that all six of the core "Friends" cast members would reunite for an upcoming TV special dedicated to sitcom director James Burrows, it turns out that's not quite the case. 

During an appearance on "The Graham Norton Show" Friday night, Matthew Perry explained that he will be in London working on the play "The End of Longing" during the event, but will introduce the other five friends stars, who will be there in person.

"It's not the reunion everyone is hoping for," he said. "The other five are going to be on this special, and I am going to introduce them from London." 

In short:

Not yet, everyone. Not YET! 

Elsewhere in the episode, Perry revealed that even he doesn't quite know what Chandler's job was.

Like the rest of us -- and Chandler's friends on the show -- he knew it had something to do with "computers."
