Matthew Perry Joins New Aaron Sorkin Drama
Sure he dabbles in drugs, but Aaron Sorkin is responsible for two great TV shows: "Sports Night" (starring Felicty Huffman) and the first four years of "The West Wing." So there's every reason to look forward to his new ensemble drama at NBC that will go behind-the-scenes of a sketch comedy show ala "SNL." Matthew Perry will play a staff writer turned show runner (who has just broken up with one of the top female stars), Steven Weber plays the network head and DL Hughley will play a top cast member. No matter what, he's sure to fare better than Matt LeBlanc in "Joey."
