Oak Parker Thomas Lennon — Matthew Perry’s new ‘Odd’ partner
West Suburban native Thomas Lennon has been cast in the Felix role in the CBS comedy pilot for an updated “The Odd Couple” starring Matthew Perry as Oscar. Deadline.com reports Lennon will slip into the role made famous in the classic Neil Simon comedy by Art Carney in the original Broadway production, by Jack Lemmon in the 1968 film and Tony Randall on the 1970 TV series.
The proposed CBS sitcom will reunite Lennon and Perry who earlier starred together in the “17 Again” feature film. Lennon also had a recurring role on Perry’s long-running NBC hit sitcom, “Friends.”
Lennon most recently stared on the short-lived “Sean Saves the World,” starring fellow Chicago-area native Sean Hayes.
