He has acted in various television shows as well as minor roles in films such as ‘Fools Rush In’ and ‘The Whole Nine Yards.’ The gifted actor was nominated for a ‘Golden Globe’ for his role in ‘The Ron Clark Story,’ a television movie. He spent his youth with his mother as part of a dysfunctional family and later relocated to be with his father as a teenager. Young Matthew was a passionate sports fan who excelled in tennis; he was a top-ranked junior player. One of his loves was acting; he used to play in numerous high school stage shows and won his first film role while still in high school. Unfortunately, his career was not launched by the film ‘A Night in the Life of Jimmy Reardon.’ He was about to enrol in college when chance knocked again: he was cast as ‘Chazz Russell’ in the television series ‘Second Chance.’ This performance provided him exposure, and he went on to make a name for himself not just in humour but also in drama.
