Matthew Perry talks with 7News about his show 'Go On'
UNDATED (WHDH) -- The season finale of Matthew Perry's new show “Go On” airs Thursday night and is expected to provide viewers with a lot of laughs.
The Massachusetts native talked to 7's Kayna Whitworth about the episode and his love for the Red Sox.
This season, fans have seen sports radio host Ryan King do it all.
He's fought for a girl and fought for laughs. In fact, Matthew Perry's character dressed up as a giant basketball to fight a jealousy issue.
And he told me it made for laughs both on and off the set.
“The funny thing about me being in that outfit is that throughout the day I would forget that I had it on. So I would go up to people and have serious discussions with them. And I would be talking with the writer and forget that I was dressed in this ridiculous thing,” Perry said.
The NBC comedy is about a group therapy class. Perry's character is trying to come to terms with the death of his wife. And his class of lovable losers, including Brent Gellmen, have great chemistry.
“Been through many trials and tribulations, a lot of trying, trials and tribulations,” Gellmen said.
In real life, Perry is a huge sports fan.
He was born in Williamstown, Massachusetts and loves the Red Sox. He couldn't be happier with the start of the season, and in his best Woody Allen impression he had a message for the team.
"Say this to the Red Sox, ‘Keep it up, because last year was a major downer,’" Perry said.
He even shared some sox trivia.
Perry told 7News 5 and a half Red Sox players wear red socks during games. He said Jacoby Ellsbury only wears on red sock.
The season finale of Go On airs Thursday night at 9:30 on 7NBC.
