How exactly did Matthew Perry become tied into the death of Moammar Gadhafi ?

Relax, it’s not what you think and he wasn’t working undercover. Following the death of the Libyan dictator yesterday, Mediaite.com dug up an old clip from a 1987 sitcom called “Second Chance” that correctly predicted Gadhafi’s death in 2011 as part of an episode.

So where does Perry fit into all this? Perry played the younger version of main character Charles Russell, a deceased man who is sent back to 1987 to help guide his teenage self to a better life. In the episode, St. Peter sentences Gadhafi to be turned in to a human bomb in hell and blown up every two minutes. Needless to say, the live audience showed their approval.

You can view the clip from the episode here.

Clearly, Perry’s fate in 2011 turned out to be far better than the destiny of his “Second Chance” character. The actor just listed his California estate for $5.695 million.
