Matthew Langford Perry (August 19, 1969 October 28, 2023) was an American and Canadian actor.

Perry was primarily known as a sitcom actor (most notably co-starring as Chandler Bing in Friends), although he also had leading roles in films like Fools Rush In and The Whole Nine Yards, and his guest appearances on The West Wing earned him Emmy Award nominations for dramatic work. Later on, he starred in several short-lived series like Go On and played Oscar Madison in the revival of The Odd Couple.

He also had a single voice acting credit, playing Benny in Fallout: New Vegas. Relatedly, he had a case of carpal tunnel syndrome from playing way too much Fallout 3.

Perry was found dead at his home in Los Angeles on October 28, 2023, at the age of 54, from causes that are still under investigation.

Not to be confused with Commodore Matthew C. Perry, who ended Japan's isolationism.
