We're all familiar with Ugly Naked Guy from Friends. The naked neighbour across the way from the girl's apartment. While we got a glimpse of his physique we never got to see his face. Interestingly, he was mentioned a good bit in the show but we only ever got to see him twice. Once when the group made a giant poking device to make sure he was still alive and another time when Ross befriended him to get his apartment. But now he has been tracked down. Fair play to The Huffington Post , who spent the last year searching for the actor who played the role. According to them, the actor was never credited and was largely a mystery to fans of the show. But they persevered in their search for him. Over the course of the year, they reached out to casting directors, searched through forums and fan sites and even questioned other actors linked with the role.

Ugly Naked Guy is the nickname the friends gave the nudist who lives across the street from Monica and Rachel. According to Phoebe , he used to be cute before he became overweight in He was a bizarre hermit who obtained his nickname for being morbidly obese and highly unattractive, as well as carrying out household tasks in the nude, with the curtains open.
The character, who Phoebe once described as being cute before becoming overweight , was seen on screen on three occasions. Each time, his face was turned away, his identity never revealed even though he shared a very intimate scene with Ross. Finally, after years of keeping his identity secret, the Ugly Naked Guy from across the street has identified himself in public. After reaching out to members of the cast, directors, and casting agents, the writer reached out to Central Casting - the team who cast the extras in Friends - for the second time. One member of the team finally got back to him, saying they found UNG. They wanted everybody to have a guess who I was.

His ugly naked guy body is just asleep. He's mentioned in a whole heap of other episodes but these two are the only ones where you see a little slither of his nudie body.
