Alex of Venice, with director Chris Messina & actor Mary Elizabeth Winstead
Matt's Hollywood success has been well earned, as he began his career in small theater productions in New York before landing a pivotal recurring role on Season 4 of HBO's groundbreaking series, "The Sopranos" opposite James Gandolfini and Edie Falco. Building on that momentum, Matt went on to land major arcs on NBC's critically-acclaimed "The West Wing" and Showtime's "The United States of Tara", among others. In addition to these arcs, he kept himself busy with guest spots on shows across the television landscape, including recurring roles on "Parenthood", "Rizzoli & Isles" and "CSI: Miami". He also continued to grab notice with flashy spots on shows like "The Good Wife", "Damages", "Marry Me" and "Madame Secretary", toggling the line between drama and comedy while returning to the boards in A.C.T.'s sold-out run of David Mamet's "Speed the Plow" to play the role of Bobby Gould, directed by Loretta Greco.
Matthew grew up in Westchester County, New York and graduated from Boston College, where he played Division I Lacrosse and and consistently made the Dean's List.
He currently lives with his family in Los Angeles.

Having made his own short film, Christmas Break, in 2007, Matt stepped behind the camera again, as Creative Consultant, to help fellow actor Chris Messina with his directorial debut, Alex of Venice. Matt also acts in the film which premiered in Spring 2015, starring Don Johnson, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Derek Luke. He has had similarly prominent roles in an assortment of Festival and Independent films such as the gritty Sublime and Beautiful, Celeste & Jesse Forever starring Andy Samberg and Rashida Jones, Ira & Abby for Magnolia Pictures, and the Ethan Hawke directed Chelsea Walls. He has also begun to develop projects, including a feature film based on "The Long Run", the true story of NYC Firefighter and triathlete, Matt Long, who battled back from a nearly fatal bike accident to compete again in the New York City Marathon and the Lake Placid Ironman.
