Matthew Perry ("Friends") is attempting yet another sitcom this fall on NBC's "Go On," which got a sneak preview Wednesday. Perry plays a guy who's ordered into group therapy, a situation that he'd like to avoid at all costs.|
Perry's last two comedies, "The End of Steve" for Showtime and "Mr. Sunshine" for ABC, retired to the sitcom hereafter rather quickly. "I gravitate toward sort of broken characters who try to be better people," he says.
"And that setup is just much better here, first of all. ... This guy has had some very dramatic things happen to him, and he's in denial when you meet him. So it's a sort of built-in excuse to be really funny. ...
"In my efforts to have a TV show and come back, the characters have progressively gotten nicer. The Showtime show was about a terrible guy. And I thought it was genius and everybody went, 'Hee, hee, I don't want to watch that.' And then, 'Mr. Sunshine,' he was sort of down and out, and now this guy, he's a nicer, more well-intended guy."
