Matthew Perry set for sporty new TV role

Monday March 5, 2012

Matthew Perry has apparently clinched the lead in a new comedy show.

The former Friends star looks set to play a sportscaster in an upcoming pilot for NBC, reports

Go On, which will also feature Law And Order: SVU actress Julie White, follows a sports broadcaster who is in group therapy while he struggles to move on following a loss.

It will be Matthew's latest bid to find success on television since he played Friends' Chandler Bing from 1994 to 2004.

After the hit American TV show came to an end, the 42-year-old starred in two shows, Studio 60 On The Sunset Strip and Mr Sunshine, which were both cancelled.

He also made guest appearances in programmes such as Scrubs and The West Wing.
