Once again joining forces with Sorkin, Perry impressed as the co-star of Studio 60 On The Sunset Strip, and then – to a slightly lesser extent – as the star of Mr Sunshine (which he co-created), but alas, both were cancelled after just one season.

Perry getting 'Numb' with indie Insight

Matthew Perry has signed to star in Numb, a dark comedy from writer Harris Goldberg, who is making his feature directorial debut on the picture. Paul Schiff is producing along with Insight Films' Kirk Shaw and Mary Aloe. Perry will play a screenwriter who suffers from acute depersonalization disorder, a condition so alienating and sanguine that it makes the chronically depressed look perky. When he falls for a girl, he puts himself through every single therapy in the book in order to win her love. Harris developed the project with Schiff, who took it to Insight, an indie production-finance company based in Canada.
