Matthew Broderick and Nathan Lane

2 of 6
In The Odd Couple, the story of two famously ill-matched divorced men trying to share a bachelor pad, Matthew Broderick plays Felix Unger, the neurotic and obsessively neat roommate of perpetually untidy Oscar Madison (Nathan Lane).

"Everyone thinks of the TV show, which was great, " Nathan says, "but it's so different from the play. The TV show was long after [Felix and Oscar had] been divorced—the play is a little darker."

"As it begins," Matthew says, "[Oscar] is depressed ... and [Felix is] contemplating suicide...then the laughs begin."
