Quite a departure from the nerdy and neurotic Ross!

David Schwimmer of Friends fame usually plays the nice guy. He even voices children's cartoons, like DreamWorks' Madagascar 3.

But his next role will be a complete one-eighty from his previous roles.

He's in talks to join the indie film The Iceman where he'll play Josh Rosenthal, a killer who "works for and worships" a mob boss, played by Ray Liotta.

James Franco was originally set to play the role, but dropped out last month.

Looks like David saved the day as the film is pretty much a go now!

The movie sounds super creepy, but we're intrigued. Oh yeah, did we mention that Michael Shannon will play east coast contract killer Richard Kuklinski?? C-R-E-E-P-Y!

    The fact that the picture says "Pivot! Pivot! Pivot!" seriously MAKES MY WEEK. I LOVE all thing friends, so it's gonna be weird seeing him as a mob killer rather than Ross Geller. Should be interesting…

    would be nice to see him finally break away from the Ross thing and get some meaty rolls
    remember seeing him in the first season of NYPD Blue - think he played David Caruso's soon to be ex wife's neighbor in her apartment building- and Caruso referred to him a 2B or something similar
    if memory serves me he was murdered- but that was so olong ago I may be off on a bit-but it was him and he was good! which is why I remember it

    I can't imagine a killer for the mob with his whiny voice.

    I think I'm always going to look at him as Ross , his character on Friends, which by the way, he should push a reunion. I watch all the reruns when I can.They're not doing anything really,you don't here about em except Anisten I think they should make some more Friends episodes or a movie. That sounds exciting,and alot of people would respond positive.
