Matthew Perry's Student Body Hookup

11/16/2006 4:56 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Matthew Perry and Lizzy CaplanIt's getting hot on the Warner lot! Well-placed sources tell TMZ that Matthew Perry has been romancing Lizzy Caplan of the new CBS show "The Class." We're told that although the two have only been coupling for a few weeks, the romance is definitely hot and heavy!

The former "Friend" met the hot "Mean Girls" starlet on the set as Perry's show, "Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip" shoots nearby. Our spies tell us the two visit each other's sets frequently, and are often seen canoodling.

The two have more in common than their studio location. "The Class" was created by David Crane, who was one of the executive producers of "Friends," and the couple was reportedly fixed up by Matt LeBlanc's rumored new squeeze (and former "Joey" co-star) Andrea Anders. Just to make things even more incestuously confusing, Anders now is a "Class" regular.

And in case you were wondering; Lizzy is 24 and Matthew is 37. Nice pull, Chandler. Could she BE any younger??

The article sarcastically ends with "Could should BE any younger?" While I'm not giant Matthew Perry supporter, give me a break. Talk about a groan-inducing final comment. Wow, just think! They're 13 years apart...which frankly for Hollywood (where I live and work) is essentially NOTHING if you look around at most couples out there. Heck, for the entire country that's a minor dating age spread when you really come down to it.

Tell you what, TMZ -- if you're going to pick on Perry for dating someone 13 years younger, why aren't you pointing a similar sarcastic finger at Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones? As a trivia note, they share the exact same birthday and are actually TWENTY FIVE years apart, literally to the day. And if you want to talk point spreads, James Doohan -- best known as Scotty from STAR TREK-- was actually THIRTY SEVEN years older than his wife, with whom he had several children. In fact, straight off IMDB trivia: In 1974, Wende met her future husband, James Doohan, at a theater performance and married later that year. Wende was 17, and Doohan was 54.

Then again, I guess whoever wrote this article felt they could get a cheap shot in at Perry hence the way the article is written...or more likely they're nursing a hurt ego from having gotten turned down for a date they really wanted!

We worked with Lizzy Caplan on Love Is the Drug, and are convinced that Mathew has made a great choice. Lizzy is beautiful, funny, and incredibly talented. Congratulations to both!

I like Mathew on Studio 60 he's great in the role he plays, for a change. I was never a Chandler fan. This girl is hotter than this picture makes her look, the show she's on right not is terrible but that doesn't change the fact that she's hot.
