// 001001:: Perry Is Desperately Seeking Sarah
-
Matthew Perry is set to follow his success in 'The Whole Nine Yards' with another comedy vehicle, 'Servicing Sarah'. Variety reports that the 'Friends' star will play a "process server" who is trying to give legal papers to a woman. Said woman is difficult to track down, however, and Perry becomes involved in a frantic chase. Romantic complications inevitably ensue. 'Servicing Sarah' will be directed by Reginald Hudlin ('Boomerang', 'The Great White Hype'), although the female lead has yet to be cast. The comedy has a strong pedigree, with writers from TV hits 'Spin City' and 'Seinfeld' responsible for its journey to the big screen. If the film emulates the success of 'The Whole Nine Yards', Matthew Perry is in real danger of becoming a movie star and leaving his 'Friends' behind.

In the September issue of In Style magazine, everyone from Friends actor Matthew Perry to Hollywood honey Drew Barrymore gives a personal definition of sensuality and the results are funny, yet mortifying. Perry, for instance, thinks "Bingo is sexy since I'm the only guy under 70 playing, I'm bound to look great!" He sheepishly adds that he's a big fan of the overwrought, romantic "moonlit dinner on the beach" routine. Why's that, Matt? "You can score with a girl, even if she hates you, if you show her [the moonlight over the ocean]." Riiiight. Source: Mr Showbiz Article and pic here!
