MATTHEW PERRY CAST HIMSELF IN THE WRONG PART

As soon as we heard about Matthew Perry producing and reviving an updated version of The Odd Couple TV series, we thought he’d be perfect as the persnickety Felix Unger. But oddly enough, in perhaps what might be a rush of misplaced masculinity, Matthew cast himself as the sloppy sportswriter Oscar Madison. Shouldn’t that role be played by someone more like his former Friends costar Matt Le Blanc? (It might be even more fun if Matthew Perry’s character Felix was gay.) Casting isn’t the only challenge here. The original writer Neil Simon wrote brilliant dialog and it won’t be easy to come anywhere near the quality of his work.

    No, Felix should never be gay as it will ruin the chemistry of the roommates!

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT: LOOK WHO’S NOT TALKING ABOUT HARVEY WEINSTEIN !
    |

    We love every one of Harvey Weinstein’s female accusers – but what about the actresses who AREN’T talking? One actress who won an Oscar in the 90’s has been CONSPICUOUSLY SILENT about the casting couch scandal. It’s because SHE has had a long-term “arrangement” with Harvey in which she traded sex for showbiz favors and it must have been awful, but her career prospered. Now this A-lister is horrified at the prospect of being found out! And, guess what – she’s NOT the only one who’s conspicuously silent!
    Any guesses?
