Friends star Matthew Perry may be gone but his legacy lives on.
Discussions about the leading actor’s biopic are going strong and it was once revealed through an interview how much he wanted Zac Efron to play him in the film.
He similarly felt that the star could do justice to the role, compared to all others from the industry but the news has not sat down well with fans. They’re in a dilemma as to why Efron out of all the actors would be tasked to fill in the shoes of one of the most popular actors in the industry.
Many felt the task was too big for someone like him while others felt he failed to look like him, let alone act. But that does not mean Efron has any plans to listen to all the harshness of people regarding the ordeal.
When asked what his sentiments on the subject were, he was more than happy to mention that he could not be more honored to be bestowed with this role. He similarly felt that this was a huge role to fill and he’s never been given such an honorable mention.
Perry stole hearts with his great performance in Friends and since then, people simply couldn’t get enough of him and his brilliant sense of humor that was portrayed on screen.
It was like magic to some while for others, it was like sheer brilliance that not all actors could emit. And in the end, the fanbase continued to increase as we speak.
Efron and Perry were known for being great friends in the industry and work buddies too.
The bond they shared both on screen and off was unmatched and the star always felt like they were brothers, more than anything else.But not every fan agrees and perhaps claims that other names should be put out for a better fit than this as it might end up being a mismatch.
