Matthew Langford Perry (born on August 19, 1969) in Williamstown, Massachusetts. His parents divorced when he was less than a year old, and Perry moved with his mother, Suzanne, to her hometown of Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, where Suzanne later worked as a press secretary for Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau.
A talented tennis player, Perry was ranked No. 2 among junior players in Canada when he was 13 years old. At virtually the same time, he discovered acting, earning his first applause for his role in a seventh-grade production called 'The Life and Death of Sneaky Fitch' When he was 15, Perry decided to move to Los Angeles to spend some time with his father, John Bennett Perry, an actor best known to audiences as the smooth-faced sailor on a series of commercials for Old Spice.
Soon after he lost his first big U.S. tennis match, his acting career kicked into gear when director William Richert spotted Perry in a Los Angeles restaurant and asked him to audition for his movie, 'A Night in the Life of Jimmy Reardon' (filmed in 1986; released 1988), starring River Phoenix. Perry landed the role, which marked his first significant professional acting experience.
Perry admitted on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' that he used to beat up Trudeau when they were at school in Canada.
Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau has taken to social media to challenge actor Matthew Perry to a “re-match”, after Perry recently revealed that used to beat up the politician during their school days.
The 47 year old former ‘Friends’ star grabbed headlines late last month when he revealed that he used to bully Trudeau and even fought him in the playground when he was only ten years old, as they both attended Rockcliffe Park Public School in Ottawa, Canada.
Trudeau used April Fool’s Day to unleash a tongue-in-cheek hitback at Perry, expressing his apparent keenness to “punch” the actor and challenging him to a duel.
The cast of the classic sitcom all got together, away from the cameras.
Lisa Kudrow has revealed that the long-awaited ‘Friends’ cast reunion has happened, but sadly it was in private.
Speaking on the ‘Today’ show the actress, who played Phoebe Buffay in the classic sitcom, said that the whole cast got together recently for a private dinner, away from cameras.

No, Maggie Wheeler doesn't really have that laugh.
Maggie Wheeler, the actress who played Chandler Bing’s on-off girlfriend Janice in ‘Friends’, has been discussing how her character’s infamous cackle came about. Appearing on ‘This Morning’, Wheeler, who doesn't actually talk like Janice, said the laugh came about “organically” during rehearsals.

"It was just progression – how Janice evolved, how the writers created the character for me," Wheeler told hosts Eamon Holmes and Ruth Langsford. "So the laugh happened organically in the first rehearsal, because I needed to find a way to laugh, because Matthew Perry is so funny.”

Perry revealed that his substance addiction was such that he can't remember filming several seasons of 'Friends'.
The 46 year old actor was interviewed on Chris Evan’s breakfast show on BBC Radio 2 last Friday (January 22nd), and when he was asked about his favourite and least favourite episodes of the hit show, in which he played the sarcastic Chandler Bing for ten years, he admitted that he had very little memory of some seasons.

In ‘The One With The Mugging’ Jennifer Aniston was temporarily replaced by a stand-in and it took fans 12 years to notice.
Most of us could probably recite episodes of ‘Friends’ word for word, but one keen-eyed fan has made a startling discovery while revisiting the classic sitcom on Netflix recently. In the season nine episode titled ‘The One With The Mugging’ there’s a split second where Rachel Green is NOT played by Jennifer Aniston and the internet’s mind is blown.
Jennifer Aniston played Rachel Green on ‘Friends’ (most of the time).
During one scene in the episode, Joey is enthusiastically ranting about the potential of a monkey also being at his audition, while Rachel stands behind him in a printed shirt. But when the camera pans back that’s not Jennifer Aniston standing behind Matt LeBlanc and she’s not even wearing the same shirt.
Over a decade since it ended ‘Friends’ is still as popular as ever.
London-based ‘Friends’ fans are in for a special treat next month as four-day festival celebrating the sitcom hits the capital. 'FriendsFest', which will take place at Brick Lane’s Boiler House will run from Wednesday 16th to Sunday 20th September and include original props and replica sets from the series.
Courteney Cox starred as Monica Gellar in the 90s sitcom.
The festival will feature a full scale replica of Monica’s apartment as well as a Central Perk themed cafe which will include its very own orange sofa for fans to get their groups photos on. There will also be a pop-up hair salon were you can go right back to the 90s with a Rachel Green inspired blow-dry

Given the first round of reviews, 'The Odd Couple' could be heading for a separation.
A remake of the classic sitcom and movie about two divorced men who become roommates even though they are polar opposites. Sounds dreadful doesn't it? 'Remake' is enough to send the alarm bells ringing but when you throw in the fact that what we're discussing here is Odd Couple - a remake of the Jack Lemon and Walter Matthau movie now starring Matthew Perry and Thomas Lennon - then that's when our palms begin to get clammy.
Matthew Perry has been looking to remake The Odd Couple for over 10 years
"The first few minutes include some unfunny lines followed by ridiculous bursts of canned laughter" said Nancy DeWolf of the Wall Street Journal.

10 years on we look at what it was that made TV series 'Friends' so special.
We’re feeling pretty nostalgic (and old) because it’s been ten years since the final episode of Friends aired. We’d sort of been getting by on the hope that a reunion episode would take place, but mean Matt LeBlanc ruined that dream. The actor, who played Joey, recently said: “That show was about a finite period of time in life, after college and before your relationship and family starts and where your friends are your support system. That’s what the magic of the show was - everyone goes through that and can relate to that.”

That wasn’t the only magic that Friends had. The reason that the show was so popular for so long was a combination of a dozen or so factors that just worked. The chemistry between the cast was palpable, you could just tell that Jennifer Aniston and Courtney Cox were best friends in real life and that translated onto their onscreen friendship.
