Rumor Mill: NBC and a Matthew Perry spin-off next Fall...

... they were talking on the radio this morning that there is rumors of talks that NBC wants to spin-off Matthew Perry's guest star character from his stint on The West Wing.

I guess they were impressed with his run as the lawyer Joe Quincy last season and are thinking of giving him his own show.

Since Joey's doing a comedy, it might be good for Perry to get serious and continue with (the ever lovable network fav) lawyer show.

I don't watch TWW, but I would give him a shot.

Why not just get him to join the cast full-time to take over Will Bailey's position on the show?

I wish they had done an Ainsley Hayes spinoff. I will never forget her discourse to Sam on why the ERA was insulting to women and completely unnecessary. One of the truly great moments of television.

Won't work - he will always be remembered by primetime audiences as Chandler.

I agree with the suggestion that they just make him cast. He WAS great in his 2-episode stint last season. Didn't remind me of Chandler one bit. However, if they go thru with the spin-off, I'll watch.

Spoiler:
IIRC, Perry's character is a Republican on the show, and not particularly well-liked by the White House staff, especially after his discovery led to the VP resigning.


And is it established that Josh Malina is leaving the show? I guess it would make sense though.

i hope that josh molina isn't leaving. while it took him awhile to get settled, he is a great actor and always good. that being said, i wouldn't mind seeing perry added. he did a great job in his 2 episodes last year.

I have to disagree.
Spoiler:
There was never an indication that any of the white house staff disliked him. In fact, Josh liked him from the get-go, he just knew that Joe(Perry's character) was hiding something from them and it turned out that it was just the fact that he was Republican. As for his discovery about the VP, I think they actually preferred it that way instead of the media getting wind of it before he resigned.


However, I don't think him and Malina are an even exchange both as actors and characters on the show. One's an accomplished writer which is the reason he got hired, and the other just wants to serve.

Scrubs is like the hot chick who dresses in loose clothes and wears a hat and sits in the back of the class. It's totally lost among all the other miscreants and ugly hos in the NBC classroom.
