'Go On': Matthew Perry And His Most Memorable TV Roles (VIDEO)

Since Matthew Perry said goodbye to Chandler Bing on "Friends," he's been associate White House counsel on "West Wing," an air traffic controller on "Scrubs," a teacher in "The Ron Clark Story," an executive producer on "Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip," an operations manager on "Mr. Sunshine" and a lawyer on "The Good Wife."

Now, Perry stars on his third series since "Friends," "Go On" (premieres Wed., Aug. 8 at 11:04 p.m. ET on NBC). Perry plays Ryan King, a sportscaster who has to go to grievance counseling after his wife dies in the new fall comedy.

When asked at the Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour what his best role was, Perry said, "It’d just be stupid to not say this one . But that is potentially true about this part, because I get to do a bunch of things all at one time. I really like doing comedy and I really like doing drama … It’s a really funny show but one of the scenes in this show gave me one of the biggest challenges I’ve ever had dramatically." Because of the show's premise, Perry will mix comedy with more serious dramatic elements in "Go On."

Between his first role as a 10-year-old on "240-Robert" and "Go On," Perry also had stints on "Beverly Hills, 90210," "Growing Pains" and a leading role in "Second Chance." Below take a look Matthew Perry's most memorable TV roles throughout his 33 years on the small screen:
