Ryan reluctantly joins a support group with one goal in mind: to get in and get out. He discovers that he might be able to help the other members of the group and they might be able to help him as well.

All four turtles for Michael Bay's Ninja Turtles have been cast, and the anticipated film is even up a Fox (of the Megan variety) and Will Arnett. And now it looks as though the project has found its Splinter, and it's a very familiar face for fans of Seinfeld.

Matthew Perry seemed to have a pretty realistic perspective on his career during his recent visit to "Conan." The star of "Go On" talked about being a huge L.A. Kings fan and how he invited one of the players to throw a party at his place after the team won the Stanley Cup.

"I bet you use that line a lot in your life," Conan O'Brien said. "I’ll have the really good steak, because I was on Friends.’”
“But we’re gonna split the bill because I was also on ‘Mr. Sunshine,'" Perry quipped, proving he's as quick with his wit as he is with his line deliveries.
Perry has been honest recently about his struggles with opiates. He battled addiction during those heady years on "Friends," which ultimately led to a stint in rehab. »
