Former TV heartthrob Luke Perry will star in the London stage version of movie classic When Harry Met Sally.

Theatre producer JAMES TOD has secured the rights to NORA EPHROM's screenplay about two New Yorkers looking for love - and he has hired ex-BEVERLY HILLS 90210 star Perry to take the lead role.

Tod says of the production - which will open at the THEATRE ROYAL, HAYMARKET on London' West End from 20 February 2004 - "I was watching the DVD and thought: 'This feels like a great piece for the theatre.' I went out and got the rights and now we've got a show."

Casting directors are currently searching for a suitable SALLY to match Perry's HARRY.
