Back in beginning of October 2016, US Weekly reported that Matthew Perry dedicated a whole room in his Hollywood mansion to Batman. A week later, while appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live, The Odd Couple and Friends star confirmed to the late night host that he does indeed have his own Batcave and began decorating it three to four years ago after getting into Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight trilogy. He, like most people, especially enjoyed Christian Bale's take on the Caped Crusader.
And on last night's episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, the 47-year-old actor was asked if he recently added any other pieces of Batman memorabilia to his collection. "Yes, I got a gift of a statue of Batman...," he replied. He then explained that it was given to him by his manager and had to assemble it himself, which is not something he is accustomed to doing.
Kimmel then presented Perry with a custom-made gift. "One of the prop guys was so tickled by your Batman museum that he made you this very special...," he begins to say, then pulls out a miniature sculpture of Perry's likeness donning a Bat-Cowl. "If you look close, you can see that's your own chin and eyes there. It's a Bat-Mask."
"That is... That is very sweet," Perry responded with a bashful smile.
THE ODD COUPLE stars Matthew Perry as endearing slob Oscar Madison and Thomas Lennon as uptight neat freak Felix Unger, two former college buddies who become unlikely roommates after the demise of their marriages. It's not long after Oscar lets Felix move in that Oscar fears he's made a monumental mistake. Oscar's jack-of-all-trades assistant, Dani, and his long-time agent, Teddy, have their hands full trying to keep Oscar's career as a sports radio host on track as he deals with his new living situation. Fortunately, their quirky next door neighbor Emily helps Felix adapt to his new life as a bachelor and rein in his copious eccentricities. Despite how exasperated Oscar and Felix make each other, in the end, these mismatched friends agree they can help each other move on from their divorces and somehow make this crazy living arrangement work.
The Odd Couple airs Thursdays at 8:30 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
