Matthew Perry Gets Bitter, Foul-Mouthed for Showtime

Last year, it was David Duchovny making his return to television on Showtime. This year, it's Matthew Perry. The ex-Friends and Studio 60 star will be making his comeback in The End of Steve, a pilot Showtime just ordered.

Perry will play a foul-mouthed (and I mean really foul-mouthed; the first word he utters is apparently a four-letter one starting with C) afternoon TV talk show host who's none too happy with either his professional or his romantic life. Perry is co-writing the script with Peter Tolan, an Emmy-winning writer and veteran of Rescue Me and The Larry Sanders Show. In a press release, Showtime's president called the duo "a twisted match made in heaven" and said Perry seemed perfect for the "bitingly funny" role.

I was surprised and impressed by Perry in Studio 60, and I'm glad to see him heading back to TV. While I chuckle at the thought of Chandler Bing being biting or twisted, I can't wait to see what Perry does with a dark comedy. The description of the character sounds a lot like Duchovny's Hank Moody from Californication, though, no? I guess Showtime has found its niche.

you know, i really enjoyed Stdio 60, so i'm sure that it'll be nice to see him back on TV. it's a shame the the show didn't go anywhere, but i guess it's the nature of programming right?

Yay! I love him, although I wasn't a fan of Studio. The c word is a favorite of mine, so this might be right up my alley! ;)
