Willis, Perry 'Friends,' Indeed

Bruce Willis and Matthew Perry just weren’t feigning friendship in their current big-screen comedy hit, “The Whole Nine Yards.” (Bruce plays a hip hitman, Perry a nervous dentist who lives next door.) They actually are friendly. Proof: Matthew asked Bruce to appear on Perry’s TV show “Friends,” and Bruce said yes. Result: Willis will be seen on three “Friends” segments, with the first to air on April 27. He’ll play Paul Stevens, the widowed father of the David Schwimmer character’s new girlfriend. The initial episode will begin shooting Friday night, reports Variety columnist Army Archerd, who adds that Willis is donating his entire TV salary to charity.
