Keri Russell reunites with ‘Felicity’ costar Scott Speedman on ‘Kimmel’

May 31 (UPI) — Felicity costars Keri Russell and Scott Speedman reunited at the actress’s Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony and on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Tuesday.

The actress, who got her start on the Mickey Mouse Club, became a household name in the title role of Felicity which ran from 1998 to 2002. Speedman played one of her love interests on the show and the actors also had a relationship offscreen.

Russell talked about her longtime friendship with the Animal Kingdom actor on Jimmy Kimmel Live and the actors answered questions about a possible Felicity revival.

“Some people are on really high-class shows,” Speedman said, referring to Russell’s role on The Americans. “I’ll do it in a heartbeat. I’ll be on Lifetime in no time.”

The actors agreed Speedman was “a disaster of a boyfriend.”

“A young 20s boyfriend is called a disaster of a boyfriend,” Russell said.

Speedman replied, “Not much has changed.”

Keri Russell received a Hollywood Walk of Fame star at a ceremony attended by partner and The Americans costar Matt Rhys, Speedman and Felicity creators Matt Reeves and J.J. Abrams.

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, the 41-year-old said of the ceremony, “I would much rather hide out from doing these things. It’s a lot for me to get up and speak, but, it’s an incredible honor, obviously. It’s so special to be a part of this. My mom grew up outside of L.A. and remembers these ceremonies, you know, so it’s incredible. It’s historic, and it’s amazing to be a part of it.”

Russell currently appears on FX’s The Americans which aired the final episode of Season 5 Tuesday night. The series will end at Season 6.
