The lovely Lauren Graham (Gilmore Girls, Parenthood) will guest star on the season finale of The Odd Couple. She plays Oscar’s (Matthew Perry) ex-wife Gaby. Oscar’s roommate Felix (Thomas Lennon) offers to help the contentious couple and then realizes he might be the reason Oscar is getting audited.
Rebooting The Odd Couple was a gutsy move. Neil Simon’s original play with Walter Matthau and Art Carney, the subsequent film with Walter Matthau and Jack Lemmon, and the original TV show with Tony Randall and Jack Klugman were all huge successes. While Perry and Lennon are both superb comedic actors, there’s something missing. TV.com writes: “What a waste of talent.” Graham might be exactly what the sitcom needs…or would that be throwing more good talent to waste? The season finale of The Odd Couple airs Thursday at 8:30pm on CBS.
