Felix Unger (or Ungar) was one of the principal characters in Neil Simon's play The Odd Couple. Felix was portrayed in the original Broadway production of the play by Art Carney, in the film by Jack Lemmon, and in the television series by Tony Randall.
Character overview 
Felix is a divorced, middle-aged man who shares a Manhattan apartment with his friend Oscar Madison. He is a compulsive neat freak, who can always be counted on to constantly clean the apartment, as well as a hypochondriac who always has a stash of medications nearby. In the TV series, he also states that he is a veteran of World War II, having served at Anzio. Felix was originally an unseen character in Simon's first play, Come Blow Your Horn.
In the play and film, Felix is employed as a television news writer; on the TV series, he works as a commercial photographer. He has two children (named Leonard and Edna on the TV series) and maintains genial relations with his ex-wife (named Frances in the play and film, and Gloria on the series).
In 1993, Tony Randall reprised his role as Felix in the TV-movie The Odd Couple: Together Again with TV series co-star Jack Klugman. In the film, Felix tries to help Oscar as he recovers from throat cancer. He also becomes overly involved in Edna's upcoming wedding, much to her and Gloria's dismay.
A 2005 Broadway revival of the play featured Matthew Broderick as Felix.
The play and the film both spell his name "Ungar," while the television series spells it "Unger." In the TV series, it was stated that his middle name is Alex.
