Law enforcement sources tell us the actor was found Saturday at an L.A.-area home … where we’re told he appears to have drowned.
Our sources say first-responders rushed over on a call made by Mathew Perry for cardiac arrest. It’s unclear where exactly on the grounds this happened.
Our sources say he was found in a jacuzzi at the home … and we’re told there were no drugs found at the scene. We’re also told there is no foul play involved.
Perry is most famous for his role as Chandler Bing on the hit ’90s sitcom, which ran for 10 seasons … and with him in all 234 episodes.
His character was a fan fave, as was performance — mannerisms and lines of which have gone on to be recreated and spoofed by fans all over the world.
One comes to mind, in particular … “Could (blank) BE more ..”
