Perry was best known for his role as one of the core cast members on “Friends,” NBC’s generation X sitcom from the ‘90s.

About a year ago Perry was amid a press tour for the release of his memoir, “Friends, Lovers, and the Big Terrible Thing: A Memoir”, which added to revelations about his battle with addiction, including a near death experience in 2019 after his colon burst as a result of his use of opioids.

On “Friends,” he played Chandler Bing, a statistical analyst who used sarcasm and one-liners.
