Matt LeBlanc Talks Reuniting With ‘Friends’ Co-Star Matthew Perry on CBS

Matt LeBlanc and Matthew Perry will be back together again this fall on CBS, as the network has staged a “Friends” reunion of sorts, scheduling both of the actor’s shows on the same night.

LeBlanc’s new comedy series “Man With A Plan” debuts this October on CBS Monday nights at 8:30 p.m., while the third season of “Perry’s “Odd Couple” is on Mondays at 9:30 p.m.

“It’s funny because Les Moonves put us together in the first place when he ran Warner Bros., so maybe that’s his plan — maybe he’s the man with the plan!” LeBlanc quipped, speaking of the president and CEO of CBS Corporation who spearheaded “Friends” back in the day.

While CBS has not commented on LeBlanc and Perry’s shows airing on the same night, bringing the two “Friends” stars back together seems like an obvious marketing tool that at the very least will generate social media buzz.

Asked by Variety if he would like to guest star on “Odd Couple” or if he’d like to have Perry come onto “Man With A Plan,” LeBlanc teased the possibility.

“Sure. We’ll see what happens,” LeBlanc said. “My show is set in Pittsburgh and I think his is in New York so it’s not too far away, right? Just a train ride!”

When asked point blank by Variety, “Do you ever get sick of people asking you about ‘Friends?'” LeBlanc replied, “No. It was a big show. I get it. I wouldn’t be standing here if it weren’t for that show — Why? What do you want to ask me about ‘Friends?'”
