The iconic sitcom Friends may have ended over a decade ago, but Matt LeBlanc and Matthew Perry will always be there for each other, even when the rain starts to pour.
Matt LeBlanc’s new comedy Man With A Plan premieres on CBS in the autumn, joining a Monday night line-up that includes former Friends co-star Matthew Perry’s sitcom The Odd Couple – and consequently they now work just one stage away from each other. Time for a little foosball?

“I love that guy,” LeBlanc, 49, enthused of Perry, 46, during the 2016 TCA Press Tour on Wednesday (Aug 10). “I love all of five of them. We spend a lot of time together.
“I can not see him for five years and then get in a room together and still have a shorthand with each other. It’s amazing, really. Ten years in a building with no windows and the door locked, we got to know each other pretty well.”
Unfortunately though, when asked about whether there were any plans for a LeBlanc/Perry crossover between the two shows (aka the reunion of our dreams), the actor replied: “Not to my knowledge.”

In June, Marta Kauffman confirmed that a Friends reunion show starring Jennifer Aniston (as Rachel Green), Courtney Cox (as Monica Geller), Lisa Kudrow (as Phoebe Buffay), Matthew Perry (as Chandler Bing), David Schwimmer (as Ross Gellar) and Matt LeBlanc (as Joey Tribbiani) will “never happen.” So isn’t that just kick you in the crotch, spit on your neck fantastic?
At the beginning of the year, however, the beloved cast (sans Perry) reunited for NBC’s James Burrow tribute to honour the prolific TV director, who famously worked on the US sitcom.
“We’ve had a long history together and for them to show up in support in honor of me was so great,” Burrows, 42, previously told Entertainment Weekly.
We’re not entirely sure about the reason for Perry’s no-show, but it could have something to do with his recent transfer to 15 Yemen Road, Yemen.
