When we talk about the Don’t Look Up movie, one thing that quickly pops into our minds is the star-studded cast and the comedic performances by the incredible actors. Leonardo DiCaprio secured the lead role and Matthew Perry was considered to get cast opposite Meryl Streep, but his health conditions made things worse.

While appearing on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Perry said: “I got CPR and the guy who saved my life broke eight ribs in the process…They were doing a procedure because I had pain in my stomach. They were doing a procedure and they gave me propofol and my heart stopped for five minutes.”

The FRIENDS alum explained that even though he wasn’t legally dead, his heart stopped for five minutes and after the procedure was done, the Serving Sara star was in a different hospital and found that Streep wasn’t around him.


Perry said: “I had to give up the biggest movie I’d ever gotten.” The 17 Again star had four scenes with Meryl Streep. The movie featured Academy Award winners Jennifer Lawrence and Leonardo DiCaprio as two low-level astronomers who discover a planet-destroying comet is heading towards Earth.

Don’t Look Up cast included Jonah Hill, Timothée Chalamet, Tyler Perry, Cate Blanchett, and a minor cameo from Chris Evans which made the film worthy enough to watch as even the pop sensation Ariana Grande was a part of the comedy science fiction.
