James Michael Tyler, who played Gunther, the Central Perk manager on the classic sitcom Friends, opened up about his Stage 4 Prostate Cancer on the Today show Monday morning.

After receiving the grim diagnosis in September 2018, the then 56-year-old actor was put on hormone therapy. It worked for a while before eventually spreading to his spine leaving him paralyzed in his lower body.

He revealed that he’s “been dealing with that diagnosis for almost the past three years…It’s stage 4 [now] late-stage cancer. So eventually, you know, it’s probably going to get me.”

During the recent HBO Max Friends reunion, Tyler had originally planned on attending in person but chose to join virtually, so as to not bring a downer on the happy moment.

“It was bittersweet, honestly. I was very happy to be included,” he said.

Now, he’s using his platform as a way to provide the important message to all men to get screened early, saying that “there are other options available to men if they catch it before me. Next time you go in for just a basic exam or yearly check-up, please ask your doctor for a PSA test.”

“I don’t want people to have to go through what I’ve been going through,” he said. “This is not…an easy process.”

When Does the Series Finale of ‘Supergirl’ Air?

When Does the Series Finale of 'Supegirl' Air?

Supergirl will be taking her final flight soon. 

After six incredible seasons warding off the bad guys and villains from National City (we’re looking at you, Lex Luthor), the series, based on the DC Comics, will air a 2-hour series finale, The CW announced. 

The sixth season kicked off on March 30, 2021 with 20 total episodes.

The final run found Supergirl sent to the Phantom Zone, where she found her father and a fifth-dimensional imp named Nyxly, who followed her back to National City when Kara’s Super Friends came to save her.

Now, Nyxly has been causing chaos in town as she searches for the Allstone totems that will allow her to totally control reality. 

It really puts Supergirl and her friends to the test as they fight for humanity and a world that they believe in. 

So, when is the ultimate showdown set to happen?

The supersized 2-hour event will air Tuesday, November 9.

Will Supergirl defeat Nyxyly? Will any other notable villains come back to try their hand at world domination one last time?

Will Supergirl hang up her cape and assume a normal life possibly with William? After all, her father did encourage her to embrace being human sometimes, and she has been doubting herself as of late. 

And will any other former cast members return for the fun? It would be awesome to see Mehcad Brooks reprise his role as Jimmy Olsen one last time. 

Plus, we’ll always hope for another Calista Flockhart appearance as Cat Grant! 

We’ll see you November 9, Cravers! In the meantime, you can check out all of our Supergirl reviews HERE
