The fascination with all things Friends doesn’t let up, even after the actors in the beloved sit-com have moved way on. It’s been nearly 15 years since the final episode aired. But with the show still streaming on Netflix it really refuses to die.
Matt LeBlanc, who played the goofy Joey and still fields questions about the show all the time, had some new secrets to divulge on Friday’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, where he was pushing his new season of Man with a Plan.
LeBlanc admitted to having taken some nostalgia-inducing items from the apartment set where his fictional self lived with Chandler (played by Matthew Perry). One is the foosball table and the other is the Magna Doodle magnetic drawing toy that the roommate hung on the apartment door. The Magna Doodle even made it into the spin-off series Joey.
But LeBlanc didn’t really steal it. He gave it to a crew member who would draw designs on the board before filming episodes. LeBlanc said the crew member was an electrician on the show who added a fun touch to the set. The actor notes that he probably could’ve sold it for a lot more money, but this is a much cuter story.
Another show souvenir LeBlanc grabbed? “A sh*t-ton of cash.”
