Matt LeBlanc’s Joey Tribbiani may have been the picture of perennial boyishness on Friends, but it turns out that that his youthful demeanor belied his secretly graying hair. “I dyed my hair the whole time I was on Friends,” LeBlanc admitted this week after a TCA panel about his new Showtime series Episodes. He also explained his absence from television since the 2006 demise of his spinoff sitcom Joey, “So when Joey ended, I took a lot of time off. I just wanted to be a dad, be myself, hang out with my daughter.” For his new show, where he plays a fictionalized version of himself, the actor is putting his salt-and-pepper locks on display, so let the gray times roll! Tell us: What do you think of Matt with gray hair? –reporting by Susan Young

Matt is going to do just fine on his new show. I agree he is a sexy man and I loved him on FRIENDS.
Good Luck to him..

I hope Matt’s agent sends him a copy of all of these comments. I was never really attracted to him on Friends, but WOW does he look amazing with the distinguished temple gray. I agree with whomever made the yummy comment!
