Until two years ago, it was hard to read about Perry without encountering words like trouble, rehab, even car crash. Now the operative words are mature, hardworking – and happy. Perry, 34, who guest-starred on The West Wing in April, just wound up a London stage stint with Minnie Driver in Sexual Perversity in Chicago – and took time to root for old pal Jennifer Capriati at Wimbledon. He’s shooting a sequel to The Whole Nine Yards, his 2000 odd-couple guy movie. His romance with Rachel Dunn, whom he took to the private post-Emmy Friends party, is approaching the one-year mark. As for his up-and-down history, “he is completely past that,” says a friend, “and is looking and feeling terrific.”
