An actress known for her roles on “Gilmore Girls” and “Parenthood” has landed a role on CBS’s updated version of “The Odd Couple.”
The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports that Lauren Graham will play Gaby, the former wife of Oscar Madison, played by Matthew Perry. While the pair are divorced, they also have a continuing connection, the story adds.
“The casting is a case of art imitating life after the ‘Gilmore Girls’ alum briefly dated longtime friend Perry,” the article notes. “This marks the third Perry series that she has had guest gigs on, joining Aaron Sorkin’s ‘Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip’ and ‘Go On.’ (She also played a love interest on the latter.)”
A debut date for the reboot, which will star Thomas Lennon as Felix, hasn’t yet been announced.
