People Are Just Discovering That Matthew Perry's Dad Was A Character On Friends
Just as we thought we had all the acting dynasties down pat, we were left stunned to realise that Friends star Matthew Perry had his own dad turn up during one episode of the sitcom.
Could we BE any more shocked?
Yep, actor John Bennett Perry appears in the season four episode titled 'The One With Rachel's New Dress', which sees Rachel (Jennifer Aniston) try and seduce new fling Joshua (played by Tate Donovan) - but things, naturally, go awry.
When buying a sexy babydoll to impress Joshua, Rachel is left mortified when he decides to take Rachel to meet his parents over dinner - mistaking the lingerie for a mini-dress.
And who plays Joshua's dad in the cringe-inducing scene? None other than Matthew's dad.
We're not sure how we missed it to be honest, especially as Matthew is the dead spit of his father.
