Matthew Perry is an actor and comedian, famous for playing ‘Chandler Bing’ in the television sitcom series ‘Friends’ for which he received an ‘Emmy Award’ nomination. He has appeared in several other television series and has also played supporting roles in numerous films like ‘Fools Rush In’ and ‘The Whole Nine Yards.’ The talented actor was nominated for a ‘Golden Globe’ for his performance in the television movie ‘The Ron Clark Story.’ Being part of a broken family, he spent his childhood with his mother, and then moved to be with his father as a teenager. Young Matthew was an avid sports enthusiast and was very skilled at playing tennis; he was a top-ranked junior player. Acting was one of his passions—he used to perform in various high school stage productions, and landed his first film role while still in school. Unfortunately, the film ‘A Night in the Life of Jimmy Reardon’ did not do much to launch his career. He was planning to enroll at a university when opportunity knocked his door again—he was offered the lead role of ‘Chazz Russell’ in the television series ‘Second Chance.’ This role gave him visibility and the actor went on to carve a niche for himself, not just in the field of comedy but also in drama.
