Matthew Perry has landed the lead role in NBC’s comedy pilot “Go On,” the network confirms to TheWrap.

The former “Friends” star will play an irreverent yet charming sportscaster who tries to move on from loss and reluctantly finds surprising solace from the members of his mandatory group-therapy sessions.

The multi-camera pilot will re-team Perry with former “Friends” and “Joey” executive producer Scott Silveri, who is writing as well as executive-producing “Go On,” as well as onetime “Friends” director Todd Holland, who is directing as well as executive-producing.

Karey Burke is also executive-producing the Universal Television production.

“Transformers” actress Julie White has also been cast in the pilot.

In addition to “Go On,” Perry has lined up a recurring role in the CBS drama “The Good Wife,” playing an “extremely charming Chicago attorney” who’s assigned to head up a blue-ribbon panel investigating a suspicious police shooting. During the investigation, Julianna Margulies’ character, Alicia, begins to question his actions.

NBC正在筹划重组《老友记》班底!马修·派瑞(Matthew Perry)已经被钦点加盟由《老友记》制作人斯科特·喜沃瑞(Scott Silveri)撰写的新喜剧,名字是《Go On》。

剧集讲述了一个粗鲁但迷人的体育解说员参加强制性集体治疗活动的故事。Perry饰演的自然就是这位体育解说员,环球电视部将制作这部单镜头喜剧。托德·霍兰德(Todd Holland)将监制同时执导首播集,朱丽·怀特(Julie White)和Suzy Nakamura已经确定进入了演员名单。

广受欢迎的Matthew Perry曾将《老友记》中的“钱、钱、钱德勒”演绎的深入人心,但在这部剧集结束后他就像其他同剧演员一样事业停步不前(今年令人欣喜的是钱德勒的铁杆室友,乔伊的扮演者马特·勒布朗(Matt LeBlanc)凭借《剧集人生》拿到了金球奖)。这些年他主演过NBC口碑高擎的《日落大道60演播室》,也在去年主演了ABC的《阳光先生》可是这些剧集均因收视问题一季就停播了。希望这一次的全新剧集可以证明他独挑大梁的能力,让这位荧屏上最憨萌的男演员开启事业新篇章。

Perry这次和代表作剧集老友重聚是电视网现在的风潮之一,NBC作为急需高收视剧集的电视网想用8090年代热门剧集“回笼”的方式打造新剧。包括曾经的热门喜剧《罗珊妮》两位主演罗西妮·巴尔(Roseanne Barr)和约翰·古德曼(John Goodman)将重聚在《Downwardly Mobile》。而其他电视网也在招揽老牌喜剧明星,FOX的《小兄台》找到了80年代风靡一时的《青春满屋》中的约翰·斯塔莫斯(John Stamos),ABC的《The Manzanis》找到82年剧集《欢乐酒店》的柯尔斯蒂·艾利(Kirstie Alley),最后是ABC的《Only Fools and Horses》找到了曾出演《出租汽车》的克里斯托弗·洛伊德(Christopher Lloyd),当然了中国观众更熟悉他的大银幕作品《回到未来》系列(那个疯狂博士)。
