Matt LeBlanc (Joey Tribbiani)

Ah, Joey: lady killer, momma's boy, ultimate bro. When a young Matt LeBlanc auditioned for the role of a dimwitted oversexed soap-opera star, he claimed to have had $11 to his name; now he can buy all the meatballs he desires. During the show, LeBlanc endeared himself to audiences with his looks, his charm and his foolproof pick-up line: "How you doin'?" Unfortunately, all that goodwill wasn't enough to keep his spin-off series Joey afloat for longer than two seasons. During the show's run, Matt made a few mediocre appearances on the big screen in films such as Lost In Space, Ed and Charlie's Angels, as well as a cameo in the music video for Bon Jovi's "Say It Isn't So".

But when Joey got the axe from NBC, Matt began focusing his attention behind the scenes, producing movies for other people (Jonah Hex, the TV movie The Prince)with his production company Fort Hill Productions. In 2010, Friends co-creator David Crane approached to play the most intriguing role of his career – himself, sort of – in a BBC-developed comedy called Episodes. Airing on Showtime in the U.S., the show has been renewed for a fourth season and has even won him a Golden Globe for acting — an accolade that always remained out of Joey's grasp.
