Matt LeBlanc Is Nothing Like His ‘Episodes’ Character

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Comedy, Prime Time, Showtime, Features,

Matt LeBlancMatt LeBlanc is a "little more together" than his on-screen persona.

The 46-year-old actor plays a fictional version of himself in Episodes, but admits he is noting like his character in real life.

"It's a fictitious character, and you just have to approach it that way. He just happens to have the same name I do. When we were coming up with who the character was going to be, I thought it would be fun - since our salaries were all published during Friends - to make this Matt LeBlanc way, way wealthier than me. You've got this guy completely oblivious to the consequences of his actions; that's fun to play. And he's really damaged, this lost soul, the Matt LeBlanc on TV," the Friends star said. But he added, "I like to think I have my s**t a little more together than that."

Matt, who has a 10-year-old daughter Marina with his ex-wife Mellissa McKnight, is glad he has regained some anonymity since Friends came to an end in 2004: "The weirdest thing was walking into a room, a restaurant, a bar, a movie theater, anywhere there's a lot of people, and everybody sort of stopping what they're doing and taking notice you're in the room. And they know you, or they think they do - they know your name, they know what you do for a living, they know how much money you make, they know where you're from, but they're all strangers to you."

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Comedy, Prime Time, NBC, Gossip, Rumors,

FriendsJennifer Aniston is being "slowly convinced" into a Friends reunion next year.

The We're the Millers actress has enjoyed a huge movie career since the sitcom ended in 2004, but producers are keen for her to reunite with castmates Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer in 2014.

"Since the show ended in 2004 it's been rare for all six of them to appear in public together. But with next year's 20th anniversary [of the show's launch] it will be unavoidable for them to do something together. It's the perfect excuse to talk seriously about a new project. It's no secret the whole project will be pinned on Jennifer, who's incredibly busy with her movie career. But she's been slowly convinced that a reunion could be a good thing," a source said.

Gwyneth Paltrow Wants to Work with Her Doppelganger Claire Danes

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Drama, Cable, Gossip,

Claire Danes and Gwyneth PaltrowGwyneth Paltrow wants to work with Claire Danes.

The 41-year-old actress is good friends with the 34-year-old Homeland star, and since they both have similar facial features and are petite blondes, she is hoping they'll have the chance to team up on screen and play sisters.

"Gwyneth has known Claire personally, but casually, for almost 20 years and when Gwyn was in her early 20s and Claire was a late teen actress, they both became famous around the same time in the mid-90s. Much has been made of the pair's similar looks and Gwyneth has finally decided that she and Claire have to find a project where they can play sisters!" a source said.

Gwyneth is said to be keener on the idea while Claire - who is currently starring as CIA agent Carrie Mathison on the third season of hit TV series Homeland - is taking things "one day at a time." The source added, "But for now, this seems like a bit of a one-way street. Claire is a cool customer and doesn't get all worked up about 'dream projects' the way Gwyneth does. She's a 'one day at a time' kind of girl, so no one knows if Gwyneth's dream will come true."

When asked if a Friends movie was on the horizon, Matthew told ABC News, "I don't think so. It would be terrible to do something and have it not be good. If we did a movie and it sucked, then it would, you know, blemish it."

Matt LeBlanc Against ‘Friends’ Reunion or Movie

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Comedy, NBC, Gossip, Rumors,

FriendsMatt LeBlanc is against a Friends reunion.

The actor - whose most notable television role to date is as Joey Tribbiani on the hit sitcom - revealed that he wouldn't support the cast getting back together or agree to a movie adaptation of the show. Matt admitted that he hadn't heard of any plans to record more scenes and suggested that it would be wrong to try to recreate the series on the big screen.

"Yeah, that probably won't happen. There's no plans for anything like that. Everyone seems to be talking about that these days, but nope, no irons in the fire there," he said.

When asked whether he thought David Schwimmer, Jennifer Aniston, Matthew Perry, Lisa Kudrow and Courteney Cox collaborating again was a "bad idea," he added, "Personally I do. I think that show was all about a finite amount of time in six people's lives. Once they have moved on from that phase, that family unit has broken down a little bit. I'm sure they'd keep in touch a bit, but it wouldn't be the same."
