Countless celebrities have taken to social media to memorialize Matthew Perry after his unexpected death at 54 on October 28. His 5 Friends costars, Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc and David Schwimmer have remained silent. According to my source the tight knit group is debating whether to issue a joint statement or individual ones. My source says that the group wants to schedule their statements so they are released at the same time. It’s likely to be the SAME statement but they’re all in such a state of shock and mourning that they’re changing their plans by the moment. My source expects something will be released today…
David Schwimmer is actually starting to LOOK like OJ Simpson’s nefarious buddy Robert Kardashian! He’s on the Brentwood set filming American Crime Story, and the Kardashian kids are featured in the TV movie also. Little lookalike versions of Kourtney, Kim, Khloe, and Rob Jr have been cast to costar. Having younger versions of the entire Kardashian family will certainly increase interest in the project. Smart idea. We’re betting the girl in pink is playing Kim and the girl in blue is definitely Khloe.
David Schwimmer is bringing Robert Kardashian back to life for the TV series American Crime Story. With Cuba Gooding Jr as the egotistical OJ Simpson, and Selma Blair as Kris Jenner, it will be hard to resist watching this. That grey streak in his hair is perfection.
David Schwimmer, 48, doesn’t look half as happy as his wife Zoe Buckman or his daughter Cleo who’s riding on her mom’s rolling suitcase, as they arrive in London. Maybe David is getting into character to play Robert Kardashian Sr in ”The People VS OJ Simpson.” This is David’s first series since “Friends.” The actual series is called “American Crime Story,” and it will feature the most sensational crimes in this country. The first season of ten episodes will tell the OJ story. Charisma Carpenter is playing Nicole Brown Simpson and Shannen Doherty got the part of her sister Denise. But who will play Kato?
We couldn’t pass up this bit of nostalgic news. 87 year old Doris Day has just released her first album in 17 years called “My Heart.” Good for HER! It’s a personal collection of songs that reflect her love for her late son Terry Melcher and her animals. Music producer/songwriter Terry produced several of the songs before he died in 2004. Doris was a huge boxoffice star in the 1960’s, but when her husband Marty Melcher died in 1968, she discovered that he had squandered all her money and left her deeply in debt. No wonder she prefers animals. Sony released this recent photo of Doris with her dog Duffy to promote the album.
SOS for Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip! Matthew Perry is frantic because the big budget heavily promoted drama series that NBC expected to be a shoo-in, is floundering in the ratings. In fact, it seems to be sabotaging the whole night for the network. Matthew wants to save the show and he’s turned to his Friends costars for help. He’s begging Courteney Cox, Jennifer Aniston, David Schwimmer, Matt LeBlanc and Lisa Kudrow to guest star. So far no takers! No one has really turned him down flat, they’re just putting him off, saying they’re busy and maybe later. Looks like nobody wants to jump on a sinking ship.
