VIDEO: Showtime's Episodes Brings Joey Tribbiani Back to TV — Sort Of
After a five-year absence from TV, Matt LeBlanc is back.
The 43-year-old actor stars as a version of himself in the upcoming Showtime comedy Episodes, which follows a British couple as they adapt their hit TV show about a boys' boarding school for American audiences.
Their troubles begin when the network executives ask them to cast LeBlanc, who played the handsome and oafish struggling actor Joey Tribbiani on Friends.

In the show's official trailer, there are endless nods to Friends; thankfully, even the fictional LeBlanc tries to duck his signature punch line: "How you doin'?"
