Picks and Pans Review: Welcome Back, Matt Leblanc!
>The actor, 43, plays himself on Showtime’s Episodes.
EPISODES POKES A LOT OF FUN AT YOU.
I didn’t mind being the brunt of the joke. Even though the character is supposed to be “me,” we’re not so concerned with him being a nice guy.
WHAT HAVE YOU BEEN DOING THE PAST FOUR YEARS?
After Joey got canceled, I got divorced, and I didn’t feel like working. I wanted to be a dad and rediscover life outside of the business.
YOUR DAUGHTER MARINA, 7, HAD A HEALTH SCARE AS AN INFANT. HOW IS SHE NOW?
She was diagnosed with a problem with her head. But she’s all better. She’s an angel in my life.
WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE THING TO DO WITH HER?
I’m notorious for tickling her. I have a cattle ranch north of Santa Barbara, and we go hiking and camping and have barbecues.
HOW’S YOUR LOVE LIFE?
I’m dating the same person I’ve been with for years, [Joey costar] Andrea Anders. Life is good. I can’t complain—no one wants to hear it anyway, right?
