'S first experience in Hollywood was on the set of Gimme a Break
, when as a child he suddenly found himself working alongside brother Joey. Shortly thereafter, Matthew booked Planes, Trains & Automobiles
, which was a great experience for him, because he worked with John Hughes
, Steve Martin
, and John Candy
(who worked with brother Joey on Summer Rental
). However, it was not until Matthew worked on Mrs. Doubtfire
with Robin Williams

and then struck out on his own to star in the ABC series Boy Meets World
. He will next be seen in Cheaters
for New Line Cinema.
Matthew's favorite food is pizza and his favorite bands are Dave Matthews, U2 and Linkin Park. He is enrolled at USC Film School and plans on directing one day. Matthew loves animals and would like to become a zoologist when he retires from Hollywood.
