Cahill played Don Flack for almost a decade on crime drama CSI: NY.
He starred in every episode of the Emmy-nominated series up until it ended in 2013.
However, in an interview with Media Village from 2016, Cahill revealed it’s his part as Tag in Friends which he gets recognised for a lot.
When asked how often he’s recognised, he said: “I couldn’t give you a number but it comes up quite a bit and came up recently,”
He added: “The reach of that show is remarkable to me and it gives me hope because it was 16 years ago.
“I was 22-years-old. Every time someone says, ‘You we’re on Friends,’ I think, ‘I’ve still got it!’”
His character Tag was involved in an office romance with Rachel Green (Jennifer Aniston).
Cahill also revealed how Aniston, in particular, made sure his time as an up-and-coming actor on the world’s biggest sitcom went smoothly.
