Luke Perry Makes Friends With method Man In Jail

Former BEVERLY HILLS 90210 pin-up LUKE PERRY has made an unusual best pal out of rapper METHOD MAN after the pair met in jail - for scenes from their new HBO TV series OZ.

Perry has ditched his heart-throb looks to grow a wispy beard for the role of a TV evangelist who is caught embezzling from his congregation. But his tough-talking rapper co-star admits he's finding it tough to think of Perry as anything but his DYLAN McKAY character in Beverly Hills 90210. He says, "I didn't know he was that cool until I met him on the set. He's my n***a. But he'll always be Dylan." (KL/RS/RGS)
