Matthew Perry (Chandler Bing)
Sure, none of the gang ever knew what Chandler Bing really did (for the record: Statistical Analysis and Data Reconfiguration), but everyone simply knew him as "The Funny One." When the show wrapped, Perry quickly signed on to star in Aaron Sorkin's promising, highly anticipated show-about-a-late-night-sketch-show Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip; unfortunately, its competition was Tina Fey's 30 Rock, and after one season, that was all she wrote.
Though Matthew had some success on the big screen during the Friends era (notably in the Bruce Willis vehicle The Whole Nine Yards), he's focused his energies in trying to find the next big television hit. He headlined ABC's Mr. Sunshine and NBC's Go On, neither of which made it further than single series. During this same period, Perry came out about his struggle with addiction and became an advocate for sober living, making public appearances with the hope of changing prescription policy. Currently he's developing a reboot of the iconic series The Odd Couple that he will co-star in alongside Reno 911!'s Thomas Lennon. Could we BE anymore happy for him? Sorry. We couldn't help ourselves.
