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 still looks good to me…But now he looks even better and sexier with the gray hair.

He is better now than at the end of Friends when he was clearly overweight.

Why do so many women actually like gray hair on a guy? I’ve dyed mine since I started to gray at age 28 a few years ago. Gray hair makes ANYONE look OLD; there is NOTHING sexy about it at all. I suppose lines and crow’s feet are hot, too? At any rate, I will dye my hair as long as it still looks natural; after that, I’ll just go lighter but NEVER gray!

Matt’s hair always DID look too black when he
played Joey. I’m happy his hair has come out of
the closet.

“Matt,you are soooo “Yummy” I sure miss seeing you on the tube! We look forward to seeing you soon. It’s nice to have a familiar face that we know and trusted for so many of our TV years! There is so many TV shows out now! “They go and come(really not good shows) I sure miss the old stand-by’s. I hope that Courtney Cox and Jennifer Aniston will really get some of their old writer’s and pen out a new show for the “Old Class of “Friends” “We miss you”!”God Bless”
