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

I admire him, for having the guts, to do it. So many of these Hollywood types, are phonies.

Love the look! Suits him well, he is super sexy! I am also glad to see him in another series. I thought he was too funny in Joey, but what do I know?

I saw Matt in person a few weeks ago and he is as HOT as ever!

Wow. What a classic example of just how shallow you ladies really are. Does it really matter if Matt is gay to be considered hot? What if he was a child molester, would you still think he was sexy? You people are very sad!

I think Yummy is appropriate to describe him and how he looks with his salt & pepper hair. One does not need to be 12 to use that word. What are you…ancient?

So what!! I’m find him even sexier with the gray hair. You go!!!!!!

Remember, men are like fine wine . . . the older they are, ther better they get.
