He's still the same old Friend, but Matt LeBlanc, 37, is running with a new crowd this fall. "Change can be good," says the actor, whose spinoff Joey drops him in L.A. with supporting players Drea de Matteo (The Sopranos) and Jennifer Coolidge (Legally Blonde) as his sister and agent, respectively. LeBlanc recently talked about adjusting to solo sitcom life, and how he's handled another new addition: his 7-month-old, Marina.

WELCOME MATT: NBC offered an advance screening of the entire pilot episode of Joey to advertisers and TV journalists on Monday – and the crowd laughed plenty of times, while several critics chimed in with their positive reactions. Joey, of course, stars Matt LeBlanc reprising his Friends role as the big-hearted, if empty-headed aspiring actor Joey Tribbiani. Clearly, the network believes in Joey. The only time in recent memory that entire pilots were previewed was for The Cosby Show and The Golden Girls.

Saying Goodbye to Friends

Originally posted 04/08/2004 01:00PM

The theme song promised they would be there for each other – and for 10 years the six stars of Friends truly were. Together they rode the bronco of sudden fame, hung on during a media backlash and tough salary negotiations and supported each other through personal crises, marriages and babies. As the show's May 6 finale approaches, the famous sextet looks back in a new book, Friends ... 'Til The End. In this exclusive excerpt – featuring never-before-seen photos from the set – they open up about the show and each other. Friends, says Jennifer Aniston, has been "like a gift you can't even imagine." Jennifer AnistonI was 23 years old when we started. Now here we are in our 30s and some of us have been married and some babies have been born. ... What's so weird about this show is that so much of our lives get in there. ... Whether it was a relationship thing or a parental thing, a situation in our lives is somehow always being played out on the show. ... It did feel like I was growing up in front of everybody.

Way To Go, Joey!

Originally posted 05/08/2003 11:20AM

Should Joey ever try to win Rachel's heart again on Friends, he might consider borrowing a page from the wedding handbook of his alter ego (and we don't mean Dr. Drake Ramoray): Take a spectacular Hawaiian evening. Add a cliff-top view of the Kauai surf. Bring in strumming guitars. And dance the night away with some of your best friends. So it was May 3 when Matt LeBlanc, who plays lovable lunk Joey Tribbiani on the hit NBC sitcom, married his fiancée of five years, model Melissa McKnight, before a crowd of 75 guests that included Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox and Lisa Kudrow. Says Kudrow: "It was so romantic and beautiful."
