Fall TV Preview

NBC Fall TV Scoop: Alias' Michael Vartan Plans to Go On With Matthew Perry

Michael Vartan Go OnIf your wildest TV dreams have ever involved Michael Vaughn and Chandler Bing palling around, you’re in luck: Michael Vartan has booked a guest spot on Matthew Perry’s new series, Go On.

From executive producer Scott Silveri (Friends, Perfect Couples), the NBC comedy stars the former Friend as a sports-talk radio host who, while coping with a major loss, (eventually) finds solace in his mandatory group-therapy sessions.

The Alias alum has been tapped to play a hockey player who hits the rink with Perry’s leading man, TVLine has confirmed. Real-life NHL star Jeremy Roenick will also be on hand for the installment.

Vartan once guest-starred a late-’90s episode of Friends — though not opposite Perry — and most recently starred in TNT’s HawthoRNe, which wrapped its three-season run last year.

After a handful of preview showings, Go On officially launches Tuesday, Sept. 11 at 9/8c.

  • Chandler Bing did pal around with him, since he played Richard’s son who Monica tried to date in an episode of “Friends.”

    But Chandler spent most of that time in a box, so maybe that doesn’t count.

  • Darnit! I was so excited to read this headline… And then so let down to read that it’s only for a guest spot. Ugh. So he’ll probably only do one episode?? Hopefully he kills it and they add him on as a series regular!!! :)

      • Mine too. We fans need to post a list somewhere of all the actors we want to see more of on the small screen. The ones who need to be not only series regulars, but should have their own shows as well.

  • Awesome news! Seriously, Michael Vartan needs to be a regular on another series. A guest spot or cameo isn’t enough.

    • THIS. Why don’t they shove him in Person of Interest? That would be lovely.

  • Hopefully Go On lasts long enough to air his episode.

  • “Go On Casts Michael Vartan – Season 1 – TVLine” was a wonderful blog.
    However, if it had much more photos it would definitely
    be possibly even much better. Take care ,Nellie
