I was ultra-curious about how former Friend Matt LeBlanc would do on Showtime's scripted comedy Episodes in the US when the project was announced a couple months ago. Lucky me, that curiosity was sated at the Television Critics Association press tour when Showtime debuted a promo for the series.
Though it doesn't include any actual footage from the the series, this satirical clip shows Matt being forced to audition for the role of a lifetime: himself. And you know what? It's pretty hilarious. If this an indication of the irreverence that Episodes will display weekly, count me in. I'm also really digging the salt-and-pepper hair LeBlanc's rocking, not to mention his reaction to finding out that he's actually the show's punchline.
