Matthew Perry has apparently signed up David Beckham to make a cameo in his new TV comedy Go On.

The Friends star plays widowed sportscaster Ryan King in the show, and he has chosen the LA Galaxy player as one of a number of real life sports personalities to appear in the series.

Matthew told WENN: "We've talked to David Beckham and he said that he would do it, so that was very exciting.

"We have asked (ice hockey star) Wayne Gretzky - I'd love to have him on the show at some point.

"My favourite athlete of all time is (tennis champion) Jimmy Connors, so, I guess my hope is that we get Jimmy Connors to come back and work with me again, which would be a dream come true."

Connors played himself in Matthew's last TV sitcom, Mr Sunshine.

NBC series Go O is due to start on US TV next year.

Resign yourself to this difficult situation. If you do a good job, you'll pave the way for bigger and better assignments. Part of the problem is you lack experience. The only way to get the training you need is to do some volunteer work. Making a temporary sacrifice will eventually pay off. Be patient.More
