Matthew LeBlanc

Matt LeBlanc was born on 25 July 1967 in Newton, Massachusetts. His mother, Patricia, is of Italian origin, and worked as an office manager, and his father, Paul LeBlanc, who was from a French-Canadian family, was a mechanic. After graduating from high school, he spent some time as a photo model in Florida before moving to New York where he took drama classes. After a few small roles on stage and on TV, he became famous for his role as Joey in Friends (1994), and in a less successful spin-off, Joey (2004), which only aired for two seasons. After the show got canceled he took a break and didn't return until 2011 where he stars as a fictional version of himself on Episodes (2011). I personally love Matt LeBlanc, especially since I just recently finished watching the show Friends. I thought that he did an excellent job in playing his actor and I am very sad that it had to end.
