Matthew Perry's Remake of 'The Odd Couple' Casts Its Felix Deadline
The remake of “The Odd Couple” from CBS, which stars "Friends" alum Matthew Perry as the slob Oscar, has cast the neat-freak Felix, reports Deadline.com.
Rounding out the new odd couple will be “Reno 911!” co-creator and star Thomas Lennon, the story notes.
Perry is co-writing and executive producing the new take on the Neil Simon classic, which premiered as a Broadway play before becoming a 1968 movie and a 1970s television series that starred Jack Klugman as Oscar and Tony Randall as Felix.
Perry and Lennon co-starred together in the movie “17 Again,” while Lennon also had a recurring role on “Friends."
Lennon just ended a role on the canceled NBC comedy series “Sean Saves the World.”
