Matthew Perry Compares Joker to His Friends Character

Matthew Perry has officially approved of a comparison between his popular Friends character Chandler Bing and Joaquin Phoenix's take on the iconic DC villain Joker.

The actor shared an image comparing Chandler's iconic dance moves to that of Arthur Fleck's as the character, in full Joker regalia, struts down a flight of now-famous stairs. Above the image are the words "cinematic parallels," and Perry accompanied the tweet with the caption "You're welcome," adding, "Sorry I don't know who made the image, but bravo."

It was recently announced that Perry would be joining his old costars from the '90s sitcom for an unscripted reunion special on HBO Max. The deal is allegedly "far from done and agreements with cast and creatives still need to be hammered out." Despite this, "the cast is willing to do it."

Friends premiered Sept. 2, 1994. The sitcom became a critically acclaimed favorite and ran for 10 seasons, concluding its run in 2004. The series in its entirety will stream exclusively on HBO Max at launch.
