Matthew Perry Is A Mess! In His New TV Show That Is! Get All The Deets On His New Role In The Reboot Of The Odd Couple HERE!

| Filed under: TV NewsGIFs

matthew perry odd couple

Oscar Madison and Felix Unger are coming back to TV!

You probably don’t know who those two are, do you? Well, your parents sure do!

Oscar and Felix were the original Odd Couple, a television series that ran for 5 successful seasons on ABC!

Well, now CBS is trying their luck on this differing duo in a new sitcom starring Matthew Perry!

The Friends favorite will play the role of Oscar. He’s the messy one. His uptight, upscale and often upset roommate Felix will be played by Reno 911! actor Thomas Lennon!

The project will be a multi-camera comedy, a format the Eye Network knows does well with its viewers. Perry is also attached as a producer.

Will this be the series that breaks Matthew’s bad luck streak? Since Friends ended in 2004, Perry’s subsequent TV shows have never lasted over one season!

Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip…CANCELED

Mr. Sunshine…CANCELED


We’re keeping our fingers crossed that the fourth time’s a charm, Matty!

    "Will this be the series that breaks Matthew’s bad luck streak?"
    No. They should not mess with a classic series like that. What's next? Are they going to try a reboot of Taxi, The Jeffersons or even I love Lucy?!? Those shows did not become classics just because of their concepts or storylines. They had amazingly talented actors that worked well with each other and had great chemistry. You can't just take an actor and slap em in the series and assume it is going to be just as successful. The new ones will always be compared to the original, and most will never measure up.

    Re: MJaded
    It seems to me that your prediction is kind of prejudiced. Matthew Perry and Thomas Lennon are great comedians and may have great comedy chemistry/timing as Oscar and Felix. Besides, the whole cast is just equally great: Sarah Baker, Wendell Pierce, Georgia King and Lindsey Sloane may aggregate a lot of funny moments to this new show with a plot that may be known by older generations but not by the new ones.

    Re: MJaded – I agree with you, where will it stop? The original cast was so good.
    Monica, I have no idea who any of those people are other than Matthew Perry but will be the first to admit that I watch very little TV.

    Re: Monica
    My point had nothing to do with the actors. I never said I did not like any of them. It was nothing personal against any actor in particular. I like Matthew, but I just think they should come up with something original. If they are great together (which we don't know yet), then someone should be able to come up with something new for them to do. He was really good in one ensemble cast, and he can be again. This does not seem like a good idea. People will compare it to the original whether you agree with that or not.
    The networks need to create new and original shows, and stand behind them instead of pulling the plug. Rehashing an old concept (the original series, the Odd Couple movie and even Grumpy Old Men) is at least better then another reality show, but not by much.
    The plot really isn't that old. There have been plenty of shows that used that plot device of having roommates with opposite personalities (sloppy/neat freak, smart/dumb). Ok I have really rambled too much. If it works out for him, then that is great. I wish them the best of luck :)

    I don't think it will ever stop :(
    I only watch White Collar, Criminal Minds, Supernatural, Elementary and Once Upon a Time.

    Re: Monica – the tv show actors were never compared to the movie actors. really no difference.
