Believe it or not it has already been 15 years since the NBC sitcom said adios, but the 51-year-old of course still gets questions about it. And Jimmy Fallon decided to ask the actor if he ever took anything from the show. The Golden Globes winner proceeds to reveal that he once took the Magna Doodle that hung on the door of Joey and Matthew Perry‘s character Chandler. Usually, drawings and words on the pad would change, and that’s all thanks to an electrician on the crew named Paul Swain.
“I stole it and gave it to him, so he’s got it. So, that’s kind of cool,” the Man with a Plan star said. “I could have sold it for a lot more.”
Matt couldn’t help himself though and also took more items including, the foosball from Joey and Chandler’s foosball table, which he now keeps in his toolbox. “I couldn’t fit the couch in my car,” the actor joked.
It was certainly nice of the Episodes actor to give the swiped item to a crew member, especially now that he can most likely buy another Magna Doodle with the $22 million he’s making a year thanks to the show’s syndication.
And while he’s not even the oldest of the show’s cast, Matt recently appeared on Live with Kelly and Ryan and told a funny story about an awkward interaction with a young fan. “It seems like every year there’s a new generation that watches it,” the actor said. “I was walking down the street one day, this was a few years ago, this kid, he must have been 13, 14, he’s like, ‘Oh my god, you’re Joey’s dad!’” And what was Matt’s response to all of this? “Scram!” he said with a laugh.
