Well, kinda, sorta.


Matthew Perry has finally come to his senses.

The former “Friends” star has been avoiding signing on for Aaron ‘West Wing’ Sorkin’s new series – but finally caved in this week, says The Hollywood Reporter.

Perry will headline Aaron Sorkin and Thomas Schlamme’s new untitled drama for NBC, previously known as “Studio 7.”

D.L. Hughley and Steven Weber also have been cast in the ensemble show, set behind the scenes at a fictional long-running sketch-comedy series in the mold of “Saturday Night Live.”

Perry will play Matt Albie, a genius comic writer who was forced out of his position as co-executive producer on the sketch show after a dispute with the network, UBS.

Sorkin wrote the part with Perry in mind.
