Matthew Perry Eyes David Beckham for NBC's 'Go On' (Video)
NBC's Go On is aiming for the stars.
The freshman comedy starring Matthew Perry as a sports-talk radio host has eyes on David Beckham for a guest role.
Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that the former Friends star is the driving force behind landing Beckham, having reached out to the soccer superstar to cameo on the series.
Showrunner Scott Silveri, meanwhile, told THR this week that he's already being pitched by agents and sports stars for cameos on the series, which has already booked the Miami Heat's Chris Bosh, Terrell Owens, Jeremy Roenick and Bob Costas for guest roles.
NBC declined comment.
Go On, which NBC previewed to 16 million viewers after the Olympics, premieres at 9 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 11, on NBC. Check out Perry's appearance on Friday's Tonight Show With Jay Leno, where he tells the host about his relationship with Beckham.
