Matthew Perry's 'Odd Couple' reboot casts Felix
CBS’ Odd Couple reboot has found its Felix Unger: Actor-writer-producer Thomas Lennon has landed the co-starring role opposite Matthew Perry.
Lennon will play “the neurotic neat one” against Perry’s “sloppy one” Oscar Madison in the pilot revival of Neil Simon’s mismatched roommates classic, which has been a stage play, film and TV series.
Lennon and Perry previously worked together on the feature film 17 Again, and Lennon even had a two-episode role on Perry’s NBC hit comedy Friends. The actor, who co-created Comedy Central’s Reno 911!, most recently co-starred in NBC’s short-lived Sean Saves the World.
