Hey, it's a Studio 60 reunion (kinda)!

Matthew PerryWe told you a while back about Matthew Perry's new Showtime series, The End of Steve. He'll play an arrogant local talk show host who is going thorugh some changes in his life. Now some other cast members for the series have been announced.

Nate Torrence, who costarred with Perry on the short-lived Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip (he played Dylan), has joined the cast and will play Perry's assistant. Other people signed on for the show include Martha Plimpton (she'll play Perry's producer), Eddie Shin (he'll play Perry's boss), and Kiele Sanchez, who Lost fans will remember as the much-loved character of Nikki, who is currently still buried on the beach somewhere. She also starred in one of my favorite sitcoms of the past ten years, ABC's Married to the Kellys.

Oh, besides Studio 60, Perry also starred in a show called Friends that lasted a few years or so.

I happened to be flipping channels one day, and saw Mad TV do exactly this: a parody of Studio 60 ("Studio 69", of course) that was behind-the-scenes of a porn movie. I've never been a fan of Mad TV, but I was astonished at how perfectly they captured the elements of Aaron Sorkin's work in this parody. It was really quite funny.

Video is gone, but I'm sure it's still out there somewhere.

I think it's time for the adult entertainment industry to give us "Screwdio 69". We'd propably get less facetime with you Bob but then again we would end up with "reunions" that actually are some and something we'd care about as a headline.
