Following the tragic passing of Matthew Perry, the world found out he had thought about a movie about his own life. Yet it is not for sure if it will happen, but we now know who could play him in the film.

Last week, Athenna Crosby, who was the woman seen having lunch with Perry the day before he passed away, mentioned that the actor had plans to approach Zac Efron to portray him in a biographical film about his life.

“He said that he wanted to make a movie about his life, and he had worked with Zac Efron in the past on a movie, and he said that he wanted Zac Efron to play him as a younger version in an up-and-coming biopic about (himself) and that he was going to ask him soon to do that,” she shared.

“He was just so looking forward to sharing more about his story and his recovery from addiction and really championing that cause to help more people.”

Zac Efron had no idea about Matthew’s thoughts, and his reaction was really decent.

“I’m honored to hear he was thinking of me to play him,” Efron said. “We’ll see. I’d be honored to do it. He was a mentor to me, and we made a really cool film together,” he shared.

Perry and Efron had previously co-starred in the 2009 fantasy comedy 17 Again, where Efron portrayed a younger version of Perry’s character.

Efron also recounts fond memories he has of filming alongside the Friends actor, “I looked up to him [Perry], I learned comedic timing from that guy. I mean, when we were filming 17 Again, it was so surreal for me to look across and have him be there, because I’ve learned so much from him, from his whole life.”

The passing of Matthew Perry resonated deeply within the hearts of numerous stars who cherished their connections with him. In a poignant display of affection, these celebrities united to express their heartfelt tributes, underscoring the profound impact he had on their lives.
