Is Matthew Perry really turning into a modern day Howard Hughes? Or is he simply falling off the wagon again? Well according to his manager he might just be taking method acting a step too far, claiming that he never really recovered from playing Oscar Maddison in the 2017 reboot of the odd couple.
“Matthew is a dedicated actor and he took his role of a deadbeat alcoholic loveable loser a little bit too seriously,” said his agent, Ari Gold.
“The only problem is now Matthew is basically unemployable, as it’s completely unbelievable that any woman would ever want to have sex with him, and that basically cuts out all rom coms and his entire market.”
“Let’s face it, he was never up for any action hero roles. So unless there’s a role requirement for a middle aged paedophile, Matt is out of luck.”
The producers of Friends, who are desperately trying to get Matt back into shape for a Friends reunion series, have given up on that idea. So instead they have decided its easier to try and convince Courtney Cox to become an out of shape alcoholic.
