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.

Aquarius:

Trust your instincts regarding moneymaking offers. If a job seems too good to be true, it probably is. Working as part of a campaigning team will suit you down to the ground. You're more motivated to help people than turn big profits. Some friends will discourage you from entering such a field, fearing it won't be lucrative. Don't worry. You'll make a very good salary by doing what you love. Contrary to popular belief, you don't have to be miserable to earn a good living.More
