Portrayed as Ross Geller’s supposed girlfriend, she was the romantic partner who he had known for like “an hour and a half”.

Depicting the role of Will Colbert, Pitt came about in the 8th season, episode 9. The episode is labeled The One With a Rumor

Having christened a rapacious romantic liaison in real life, Pitt surprisingly exhibited a character that hated Aniston in the reel life.
