Talk to the friend. Ask him what is going on with him, and let hm know that you have observed a change. Maybe he is under some severe personal stress, or dealing with depression or some other mood altering condition. Depending on the response that you get, you may either find a way to work out the solution with the cranky friend, or go to management to seek a solution.
No matter what the friend says or does, make certain that your behavior is professional. If you do decide after trying to work out the problem with both the friend and the management, that you will no longer choose to work there, then give proper notice, do your work, get a good reference and go find another job, preferably while you are still working.
