Personal Quote:

[on his sports-based series 'Go On'] Whenever I come across a famous athlete, I'm shameless. I'll just ask them to be on the show. To my face they've all said yes so far. See more »

Trivia:

According to an interview, Matthew claimed that when he was filming A Night in the Life of Jimmy Reardon (1988) he had formed a star complex and would cockily ask his fellow co-stars what they planned on doing now that "they were on their way". He then said that reality settled in once the movie was released and nothing happened. See more »
