Perry, who died in March at age 52, filmed his scenes as fictitious TV actor Scott Lancer in the Quentin Tarantino film last summer. "I remember my friend Vinny, who is in the film as well, we walked in and we both had this butterfly moment of like, 'Oh my God, that’s Luke Perry over there!'" recalled Leonardo DiCaprio in an Esquire interview. Brad Pitt, who is three years older than Perry and who once was roommates with his Beverly Hills, 90210 co-star Jason Priestley, said: “'That’s Luke f*cking Perry!' We were like kids in the candy shop because I remember going to the studios and (Beverly Hills, 90210) was going on and he was that icon of coolness for us as teenagers. It was this strange burst of excitement that I had, to be able to act with him. Man, he was so incredibly humble and amazing and absolutely committed. He couldn’t have been a more friendly, wonderful guy to spend time with. I got to sit down and have some wonderful conversations with him. It was really special."
