'Friends' was an education in intelligent comedic banter; in intelligent vernacular. It was an education in scene study. It was an education in group dynamic. I came out of there with a master's degree in comedy.
I am not afraid if people think Matt LeBlanc in 'Episodes' is who I am - my friends and family know who I am.
When I was younger and studying acting, I never ever saw myself in the sitcom world; it was drama that really turned me on and still does.
'Friends' was a true ensemble. There really was no star of the show.
People call me Joey all the time. I take it as a compliment. There's no point in correcting them. But I'm much more even-keeled and subdued and relaxed than Joey Tribbiani.
I started going gray in my early twenties.
As an actor, the biggest compliment you can get, in my book is for someone to believe that you're the character.
Comedy is just to me, maybe it's a natural knack, if I can see where the joke is in the writing and I can see where the setup is and I can tell this is the way to make it.
