Somewhere, Matt LeBlanc just keeled over and started bawling after reading this headline. Matthew Perry, who’s had an odd TV run since his Friends days, has put together a reboot (remake? grittifying sequel?) of beloved TV classic The Odd Couple.
And opposite his Oscar will be The State and Reno 911! alum Thomas Lennon playing Felix. In case you don’t recall, Felix is the uptight one, so we can look to Lennon’s role in I Love You, Man as a parallel.
The pilot is going up for CBS this fall, and marks the third time Lennon and Perry have worked together following Friends and 17 Again. The big takeaway here? MATTHEW PERRY LOVES PORTRAYING ROOMMATES WITH OTHER ACTORS.
