LOS ANGELES--Former “Friends” star Matthew Perry, making another bid for a television comeback, says his characters have got more likeable with every attempt to find success.
The 42-year-old actor, who has largely failed to follow up his fame as the hapless Chandler Bing in the comedy that ended in 2004, returns to television in September as a sports talks radio host who joins a grief counseling group after the death of his wife.
The new comedy “Go On” follows the dark and short-lived series “Mr. Sunshine” in which Perry starred as well as co-creating in 2011, and drama “Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip” which was canceled after one season in 2006.
