The One Where Gen X Loses a Friend and Grapples With Their Own Mortality

I would give this dog anything they wanted.

If you’re feeling spooky, this is a reminder that you can stream the Exorcist TV series on Hulu. It remains the best Exorcist sequel out there.

If the Guy Fieri-officiated Kristen Stewart wedding doesn’t happen, we riot.

Love is dead? Maybe?

Hoping Bridgette Wilson gets well soon.

Matthew Perry, Actor best known for his role as Chandler Bing on Friends, but also a very outspoken survivor of addiction who spent his life trying to help others. This is one that really hurts.

“We are shocked and deeply, deeply saddened by our beloved friend Matthew’s passing. It still seems impossible. All we can say is that we feel blessed to have had him as part of our lives,” said “Friends” co-creators Marta Kauffman and David Crane and executive producer Kevin Bright in a joint statement. “He was a brilliant talent. It’s a cliche to say that an actor makes a role their own, but in Matthew’s case, there are no truer words. From the day we first heard him embody the role of Chandler Bing, there was no one else for us. We will always cherish the joy, the light, the blinding intelligence he brought to every moment – not just to his work, but in life as well. He was always the funniest person in the room. More than that, he was the sweetest, with a giving and selfless heart.”

The “Friends” co-creators and EP concluded their statement by saying, “We send all of our love to his family and friends. This truly is The One Where Our Hearts Are Broken.”
