After Friends ended in 2004, all six stars went their separate ways. Sadly, Matthew Perry's post-Friends resume is a little spottier than you might have predicted - especially in comparison to some of his more successful co-stars. Here's why Hollywood won’t cast Matthew Perry anymore..
During the first blush of fame for the stars of Friends, nearly all the actors went off to make movies - terrible, terrible movies. Matt Le Blanc, for example, starred in Ed, a movie about a baseball playing monkey; David Schwimmer appeared in a bleak romantic comedy called The Pallbearer; and Matthew Perry starred in the romantic comedy Fools Rush In with Salma Hayek. That film made just $29 million at the box office - which was a pretty blah start for Perry's film career..
He eventually found some success in The Whole Nine Yards, but that was mostly a Bruce Willis vehicle in which Perry simply played second fiddle. The rest of Perry's film career produced results that were less than stellar. Besides Fools Rush In, Perry’s bombs included Almost Heroes, Three to Tango, and Serving Sara. Perry hasn't even starred in a movie since 17 Again in 2009, and it doesn't look like he's going to be taking any Hollywood roles anytime soon.
