Since the announcement, Friends star Perry shared his excitement for the role in a Tweet that read: “I just booked a movie with Meryl Streep! If you need me, I’ll be on the treadmill for the next six weeks.”
Don’t Look Up follows the story of two low-level scientists (played by Lawrence and DiCaprio) who embark on a global media tour to try and warn the world about an impending meteor. However, they find an unreceptive audience.
This will be DiCaprio and Lawrence’s first Netflix film. The pair are among the few major A-listers to have yet starred in a project for the streaming giant.
