There's some reciprocity in Perry's appearance as Cox guest-starred on his short-lived NBC comedy, "Go On," on an episode that aired in March.

This will be the second time Cox has enlisted a "Friends" co-star for the series. Lisa Kudrow guest-starred during its first season in 2010 as Jules' (Cox) cruel dermatologist, Dr. Amy Evans, who she finds it out is seeing her ex-husband, Bobby (Brian Van Holt).

Perry and Cox starred together on NBC's "Friends" from 1994-2004. Aside from "Go On," Perry also guest-starred on a multi-episode arc on CBS's "The Good Wife." He also starred in, executive-produced and co-wrote the short-lived series "Mr. Sunshine" for ABC. His TV credits also include Aaron Sorkin's "Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip" and "The West Wing," which earned him two Emmy nominations. Perry also received Emmy, Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Award nominattions for TNT's original movie, "The Ron Clark Story."
