Who on Earth Is Matt Leblanc?
Well, well, well, if it isn’t the one and only Matthew Steven Leblanc! This American actor and comedian is famous for his portrayal of Joey in the hit sitcom Friends. You know, the dim-witted, well-intentioned, and womanizing Joey Tribbiani? Yeah, that’s the one.
Thanks to the popularity of his character, a spin-off series entitled Joey was created after the original Friends series ended. This role even earned him nominations for the Emmy Awards. Not too shabby, eh?
Born in Massachusetts, Matt Leblanc is of French-Canadian descent. He was just 17 when he moved to New York City to pursue his acting career. And boy, did he make it big! His first TV appearance was in a Heinz tomato ketchup commercial that aired in 1987. From there, he became part of the TV drama series entitled TV 101 for a single season.
But it wasn’t until 1994 that he landed the biggest break of his career as he took on the role of Joey for the sitcom Friends. He played the role for the next 12 years (or a total of 10 seasons in Friends and 2 seasons in Joey). Talk about dedication!
The massive success of Friends led to him becoming a household name. In addition to his success on TV, Joey also appeared in multiple films such as Lost in Space, Charlie’s Angels, and the Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle sequel. Not too shabby for a guy who started out in a ketchup commercial, right?
When Joey was canceled, he announced that he would go on hiatus for one year. But his break actually took five years. Hey, we all need a little R&R sometimes, right? In 2012, he had a career revival as a host of the show Top Gear. He also appeared in the CBS sitcom Man with a Plan in 2016. Looks like Matt Leblanc is still going strong!
