Lennon and Perry Become Roomies in Odd Couple Reboot

Posted by at 10:19 am on March 14, 2014

Matthew PerryCBS has been itching to give The Odd Couple another go for quite some time. All they needed was two likable leads, and it appears they’ve just found them.

Thomas Lennon will be Felix to Matthew Perry’s Oscar in the coming reboot, according to THR. In the original show, Felix was an OCD clean freak while Oscar was a huge slob. The reboot has a bit more of a detailed plot than the original:

“Lennon’s Felix is described as a maddening neat freak and an uxorious man whose compulsion to live in a precisely ordered, meticulously perfect environment alienates him from everyone in his life. Stunned when Ashley, his wife of 20 years, can no longer stand his persnickety, controlling ways, an emotionally devastated Felix looks to his best friend, Oscar Madison (Perry), for help and support. But Oscar is a born slob, a man who believes that pizza boxes, cigar butts and beer-stained sports pages from 2003 are the height of manly decor. Offered a place to stay by Oscar, Felix feels compelled to repeat the behavior that got him homeless in the first place, and Felix’s manic need to clean, cook and control soon shreds every one of Oscar’s nerves right down to the bone.”
