A Real Joey

‘THERE are actors’ actors. There are character actors. And there is Matt LeBlanc, the actor who played a talentless actor struggling to get any work with a rare and empathetic aplomb.


That was Friends. And then was Joey. In this spin-off, Joey Tribbiani moves to Los Angeles to pursue his acting career. And he meets lots of new friends.

The show is now in “hiatus”. It was in a kind of catatonic coma for the first two seasons, so a hiatus may be an improvement, perhaps Friends’ Joey’s alter ego Dr Drake Ramore can enlarge on that.

Back in the real world, Matt LeBlanc is already moving on. Reports say that the “actor” has filed for divorce from Melissa McKnight, and is dating his Joey co-star Andrea Anders.

Actors dating co-star is rarely a good idea. Someone should tell Matt was only supposed to be acting…’
