courteney-cox-matthew-perry-cougar townTurnabout is fair play — especially among Friends.

Matthew Perry, who lured Courteney Cox to his short-lived NBC comedy Go On last season, is repaying the favor by guest-starring on Cougar Town.

No word on who Perry is playing, but his episode is expected to air towards the end of the TBS comedy’s fifth season (bowing Jan. 7).

Perry is the third Friends vet to visit Cox on C-Town, following stints by Lisa Kudrow and Jennifer Aniston.

  • They should give him a recurring role.
    Also, is this the final season of Cougar Town? It doesn’t seem as though TBS (and maybe some of the cast) really want a to continue on much longer

    • There’s about a 80 percent chance that this is indeed the last season. But we’ll keep hoping!

  • Liked this show in the beginning but not so much now.

  • I’ve wanted Matthew Perry to guest on CT the most out of all the Friends cast. They had the best chemistry. Monica & Chandler made the show for me. I thought the creator of CT said another season was a 50/50 chance? It seems like the cast love the show and have fun doing it, so I don’t see why they wouldn’t want to come back. I think it’s the ratings and whether or not TBS wants to keep it going.

  • Mr. Sunshine was my favorite of the post-Friends shows. Matthew Perry is great – should be a fun show.

  • Application of a mixture of cooked oatmeal and honey on body restores skin water balance. Continuously ask your spouse to allow you to go buy an M-Gator.
