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

Good looking guy just got better looking! The rest of the Friends cast seems to want to stay perpetually looking like they did back then (same hair styles etc. for every new role) Good for Matt for looking real!

I would take him more seriously now with the gray hair than before. He would remind me too much of the lovable dingbat Joey if he still dyed his hair.

Way to embrace your gray hair Matt! I wish I had that courage!
