Perry also opened up about his favorite celebrity guest stars on the popular sitcom, saying, “My favorite guest star? Well, Bruce Willis was on who is a pal of mine, that was really fun. And he was on two episodes and won an Emmy, and I was on 137 and did not win an Emmy, so that’s my story. I don’t want to seem bitter, but I am bitter.”
Perry played the hilarious Chandler Bing on the beloved sitcom from 1994 to 2004, while Holmes played the brooding Joey Potter on Dawson’s Creek
from 1998 to 2003. Now that it’s been more than a decade since their shows went off the air, the pair are ready to wow as Ted Kennedy and Jacqueline Kennedy.
Holmes has portrayed the former First Lady before in the 2011 mini-series The Kennedys
, and was excited to tackle the role again.

“I really enjoyed playing her before and the writing for this miniseries was wonderful when I read the script,” she told ET. ”I was excited to play her during this time period in her life, and watch her go through more tragedies but overcome them and also become stronger as a woman. And yes, she falls in love but she also comes more into herself, and she works a double day and she is very present in the Kennedy family, very helpful but also staying true to who she is.”
