Born in Pittsburg, California, Matt Lowe came into this world via C-Section. Matt moved around a lot in his life but mostly from California to Washington State where he now calls home.
Dealing with weight issues since high school, Matt became morbidly obese around the age of 23 through 26 where he weighed 619 pounds. He appeared on Season 1 of the MTV show 'Catfish' which launched him into stardom.
Matt has since lost over 200 pounds and resides in Vancouver, Wa where he is pursuing his dreams of acting, script writing, stand-up comedy, music and pretty much anything that has to do with the entertainment business. He also spends his time on his social media connecting with fans across the world talking back and forth and giving support to anyone that he can during his busy schedule on subjects of weight, depression or any other mental issues.
Matt is about to wrap the film Slapped! The Movie, a hilarious comedy he co-wrote and is a lead actor in!
Now it's time to get to know the actor who makes Josh Bennett come to life...in a hilarious way!
1. In what ways are you and the character Josh similar?
Josh and I a very similar in the sense that we're both immature and we don't take life too insanely serious while simultaneously being a supportive friend who is always going to have your back in times of need but to also lift your chin up when you're feeling down and out. Plus, we're both very similar in the way we talk and how bad ass we are in general.
2. Which episode of Adventures in #Adulting do you feel will appeal the most to audiences?
I feel like the last episode will appeal the most because of how much fun it is. I honestly feel like all the episodes were really fun but the last one will be what impacts them the most when it ties all the things from previous episodes together in a finale and it's the climax of this whole season. On top of that the huge party scene is epic and not only was it amazing to film but I know it will stand out for sure just from what little I saw from my point of view.
3. What is your favorite 90's movie?
My favorite 90's movie would be the Matrix although that's an odd one probably and it's late 90's but it came out in 1999 and it's my favorite movie of all time. Maybe The Lion king is pretty close to tied with the Matrix due to how close to my heart that movie is but Matrix is my adult answer and Lion King is my child heart answer ha.
4. Which full album from the 90's would be the first you'd add to a playlist?
I definitely find it hard to pick but I would have to say it's a definite tie with Nirvana's "Nevermind" and Bush's "Razorblade Suitcase". Both of these albums are very close to my heart and my friends and I would jam out to these bad boys on a daily basis!
5. Are Matt and Jess dating? Or is it just a hook-up?
I would say that Jess and Josh are dating but they're both free spirits. I say Jess is a free spirit because you would have to be in order to hang with Josh. I believe even if Josh felt serious feelings for Jess it would be too difficult for him to express himself in that sense from his immaturity level but I like to think in the privacy of their homes they act loving and have a more meaningful relationship.
6. What brought you to Portland, Oregon?
The Portland area has been my home tied with the California Bay Area as well. I always seem to go back and forth considering I was raised equally between both places but something always brings me back to the beautiful Pacific Northwest. I believe it's the green environment and the amazing friends and family.
7. In Portland, name your favorite place to grab some grub?
I would have to say Voodoo Doughnuts and any Filipino restaurant.
8. Who is the one actor/actress you'd love to work with?
I would LOVE to work with Denzel Washington. He's definitely my favorite actor and I love every single project he's a part of. Besides his obviously out of this world acting skills he is an amazing person in general from the things I've read and seen online. I would love to meet him and get to know him but also get some tips on acting because I'm sure he could be an amazing mentor for it.
9. Which of the 7 deadly sins are you most guilty of?
Haha, I feel forced to say Gluttony considering how fat Josh and myself are hahahaha
10. Why should people watch Adventures in #Adulting?
People NEED to watch Adventures in #Adulting because although it's a hilarious show it really has a serious underlying story plot that touches you in your heart... way deep down. Everyone goes through major changes and huge obstacles in life and I believe this show represents a struggle we all can relate to but brings it to you in a very entertaining and thoughtful way. Not to mention all the amazing cast and crew who came together to make something this great.
