Matthew Perry stars as Ryan King, a sports talk radio host who is eager to get back to work after the death of his wife in NBC's comedy series "Go On." Ryan finds himself in a support group for "life change," where he meets an oddball cast of characters and butts heads with the group leader, Lauren (Laura Benanti).
Perry is perhaps best known for his role as Chandler on NBC's critically acclaimed comedy "Friends." Since "Friends" concluded, Perry has continued to captivate worldwide audiences with his diverse talents in a range of projects. His versatility in both television and film makes him one of today's most accomplished and credible actors.
Most recently, Perry guest starred in a multi-episode arc on "The Good Wife," portraying an extremely charming Chicago lawyer with questionable ethics.
He starred and served as executive producer and co-writer of "Mr. Sunshine." The series was based on an idea conceived by Perry, and also starred Allison Janney, Andrea Anders, James Lesure and Nate Torrence.
Additional television series include "Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip" in a role written for him by Aaron Sorkin. He made his directorial debut with an episode of "Scrubs" in 2004, where he also guest starred in the episode alongside his father, John Perry, portraying his fictional father.

Feature film credits include "17 Again," "Birds of America," "Numb," "The Whole Nine Yards," "The Whole Ten Yards," "Three to Tango," "Almost Heroes," "Fools Rush In" and "Serving Sara."
Perry realized one of his personal challenges when he made his stage debut in London's West End in David Mamet's "Sexual Perversity in Chicago." He co-starred alongside Minnie Driver, Hank Azaria and Kelly Reilly. The play broke the record for the largest box-office advance for a West End show at the time.

As an ALL RISE ambassador with the NADCP, he has gone to Capitol Hill to advocate on behalf of Drug Court professionals and participants.
