Matthew Perry is set to reunite with his former co-star and real-life ex-girlfriendLauren Graham on-screen after the actress was cast as his ex-wife on new TV sitcom Odd Couple.
The Friends star dated Graham back in 2002, but they proved their professionalism by appearing opposite one another in canceled comedy series Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip in 2006 and the 2012 show Go On, on which the brunette also played Perry’s love interest.
The Parenthood actress will now portray Gaby, the former wife of Perry’s character Oscar Madison, in the Odd Couple reboot, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The upcoming TV comedy, which is due to debut next year, is based on Neil Simon’s classic play, about two drastically different college pals who move in together after their marriages end.
Thomas Lennon will play Madison’s roommate Felix Unger.
Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau previously portrayed the characters in a 1968 film and 1998 sequel, while Jack Klugman and Tony Randall teamed up for a spin-off TV series, which ran from 1970 to 1975.
Ron Glass and Demond Wilson also appeared as Ungar and Madison in a African-American themed version of The Odd Couple in the early 1980s.Recommend0 recommendationsPublished in
