Matthew Perry has been promoting and being open about his new memoir, Friends, Lovers and The Big Terrible Thing. The Fools Rush In actor just announced on SiriusXM’s Pop Culture Spotlight with Jessica Shaw that the script for his romantic comedy film is complete. He adamantly declares that the screenplay is finished and that he is out with some individuals. He even talked about his minor part in the film.
The Friends actor talks about how Zac Efron was his ideal choice for his dream cast in the movie. He wanted to collaborate with him once more, but Zac Efron turned down the part, forcing him to look for another actor. He hopes for the best because directing this film will be a whole new experience for him.
Zac Efron shows no interest in reuniting with Matthew Perry
The Friends actor and Zac Efron co-starred in the comedic film 17 AGAIN in 2009. The actor from Baywatch previously portrayed Matthew Perry’s younger self in the film, marking his first significant post-High School Musical movie role. In his unmade rom-com film, the FRIENDS star hoped to work with Zac Efron once more. Perry yearned to relive his youth. Even though he had written himself a little part in the film, he later discovered that he was 20 years too old for the character.
He wanted to cast the Baywatch star for the role of his younger self in the film. He continues by saying that Zac Efron declined his offer and has no desire to work with him once more. We are still unsure of the cause of this. While remaining mum on the movie, he continued to talk about the other actors who had been cast in his romantic comedy. His top pick is now the Parks and Recreation star Aubrey Plaza.
Matthew Perry shades Keanu Reeves says, Keanu Reeves still walks among us
Unexpectedly, Matthew Perry just published a memoir in which he criticizes Keanu Reeves only sparingly. Why does Keanu Reeves continue to live among us when creative thinkers like Heath Ledger and River Phoenix pass away? When mentioning Chris Farley’s death in December 1997, 17 again star makes fun of Keanu Reeves by saying, “I punched a hole through Jennifer Aniston’s dressing room wall when I found out.” He doesn’t go into greater depth regarding his apparent dislike of the actor, but he does discuss another topic in great detail.
Later, when asked by admirers if he was envious of star Keanu Reeves, Perry responded that he merely chose a name at random and should have used his real name. He claims that Keanu Reeves is truly a fan of his. However, despite all of this, Keanu doesn’t seem to be disturbed by Perry’s words.
In addition, when asked by fans why he quit his part in the A-list Netflix movie Don’t Look Up, he replied that he departed because he had to spend time in a recovery facility in Switzerland while the movie was being shot. His heart stopped for five minutes as a result of a number of different drugs that were given to him. The FRIENDS actor also claimed that a member of the medical staff truly didn’t want him to die and performed CPR for straight 5 minutes. Despite the fact that he saved his life, he cracked 8 of his ribs.
FRIENDS is now streaming on Netflix.
