Matthew Perry and Thomas Lennon for The Odd Couple?
I got super excited when I heard the news that Matthew Perry is coming back to television. He was famous for his role as Chandler Bing from the ?90s hit sit-com friends. Not just that though but he was also in the movie The Whole Nine Yards and The Whole Ten Yards as Nicholas ?Oz? Oseransky and 17 Again as the adult version of Mike O?Donnell (the younger one was played by Zac Efron).
His partner, Thomas Lennon, was also a comedian who guests in different sit-coms like How I Met Your Mother as Klaus?Victoria?s ex fianc? who she left at the altar for Ted Mosby?and FRIEDS as Randall. Thomas Lennon was also in the movie 17 Again as Mike O?Donnell?s best friend, Ned Gold.
My thoughts about them pairing up
I?m a big fan of Matthew Perry and I really loved his role as Chandler Bing in FRIENDS. He is funny?even when he is being sarcastic. So the news of him going back to television and playing a role in a sit-com is actually quite exciting.
Thomas Lennon on the other hand, he?s funny too but personally, I prefer Matthew?s way of delivering the line. His role as Klaus in HIMYM though is excellent!
