Matt LeBlanc, actor (July 25, 1967–present)

“I am not afraid if people think Matt LeBlanc in ‘Episodes’ is who I am - my friends and family know who I am. There are parts based on myself, but what they will do is take something that is real about my life that is a seed and grow it into this bush of an idea. Where it goes is based on that seed, it is not what really happens - my life is not that interesting.” —Matt LeBlanc

“I'm kind of spoilt when it comes to comedy. I was on ‘Friends,’ which was one of the funniest things on television. When I read a comedy and don't laugh, I think it's probably not that funny, so I feel a little jaded that way.” —Matt LeBlanc
