Quote from: bgmnts on October 29, 2023, 08:47:54 AMDon't think the title is that bad, it's just a reference to the cadence of his most famous acting role.
Quote from: Ballad of Ballard Berkley on October 29, 2023, 08:44:09 AMSuch terribly sad news, he was a great comic actor.And this thread title can get to fuck. Honestly.
Quote from: lauraxsynthesis on October 29, 2023, 09:20:27 AMIn a recent RHLSTP Richard Herring recommended Perry's autobiography. He said the man seemed very unpleasant and lacking in self-awareness and it was a compelling read. I've never even seen Friends but am curious about the autobiography - anyone here recommend it?
Quote from: neveragain on October 29, 2023, 01:34:12 AMDunno what DSMO stands for but I agree, the tone of these threads is often quite cunty.
Quote from: Good Hank on October 29, 2023, 09:58:07 AMI did read Perry's book, and while there was plenty of psychobabble, I think he did make genuine attempts to help others going through what he had. But you didn't finish with the impression he was going to have a happy second act.He was a fantastic comic actor, and I still enjoy watching Friends.
Quote from: Icehaven on October 29, 2023, 10:13:55 AMI've not read it yet (despite starting a thread on here about it a while back), I was waiting for the paperback but I'll probably just get it from work now. Didn't he start a rehab centre for alcoholics at one point?
Quote from: Butchers Blind on October 29, 2023, 09:42:19 AMI never liked Friends and found all the characters completely unlikeable, so I'm fine with the thread title.
Quote from: Good Hank on October 29, 2023, 10:24:41 AMI can't recall whether it was for addicts in general, but he forged a close bond with his sponsor and decided they would go into partnership on a facility, despite being warned against it. I don't think it turned out that well.
Quote from: Pink Gregory on October 29, 2023, 10:38:42 AMYou wonder if the pressure of being 'the funny one' in an ensemble sitcom would get to a young actor a bit.
Quote from: edwardfog on October 29, 2023, 08:49:44 AMKnew it would be someone on this board to make this joke. How do people who spend all their time watching comedy have the worst sense of humour of anywhere on the internet RIP Matthew Perry I liked you in Friends when I was younger
Quote from: Blue Jam on October 29, 2023, 10:44:10 AMIn his book he comes across as someone who really wanted to be a leading man but was frustrated that he didn't quite have the looks for it. It seems he was jealous of Matt LeBlanc, and of course Keanu Reeves. He may have had more success as a character actor but it sounds like he would never have been truly satisfied with a career in supporting roles.
Quote from: damien on October 29, 2023, 01:48:59 AMThis stuck in my mind from years ago; DAVID CRANE: We brought everybody in. We were so sure that Chandler would be the easiest part to cast. It's got the most joke jokes. It's sarcastic and kind of quippy, but no one could do it. No one.https://www.vanityfair.com/culture/2012/05/friends-oral-history-top-of-the-rock
