Famous Matthew's

Last year, on days when I didn't know what to post, I did the "Shows that Start with" series. This year, since I finished that, I'm simply going to ask you to rank the top 3 people of a somewhat random 1st name. Who are your 3 Favorite Famous Matthew's? Here's my current ranking (subject to change), but feel free to name someone unlisted:
  1. Matthew (Apostle)
  2. Matthew Broderick (Actor)
  3. Matthew Perry (Actor)
  4. Matthew Fox (Actor)
  5. Matthew McConaughey (Actor)
  6. Matt Damon (Actor)
Am I forgetting some famous Matthew's?

Contrary to popular opinion, Matthew McConaughey is the most annoying actor ever.

Another famous Matthew is Matthew West of Christian music fame. I guess he's not extremely famous, but I like him.

wow, ya'll know a lot more famous matthew's than i do. I have heard of matthew fox (priest), matthew west (christian singer), and mathieu biron (hockey player).

Actually, I am quite surprised there aren't more famous matthew's in sports. It's a very common name, but there aren't any very famous mathletes.

I'll vote for Matthew the apostle, Matthew Perry, and our own Matt Rose. Matt Damon annoys me and Matthew Fox is just too...I don't know. I like Matthew Broderick, but he will always be Ferris Beuller in my heart.
