“I got really into it actually,” Matt told host Jimmy Fallon. “I had some projects in development, and I wasn’t sure if they were gonna happen or when they were gonna happen. So, I auditioned. I mean, I dressed up like Malibu Ken. I dressed up like Business Suit Ken. I had like four different looks going on. I have pictures of this.”

As for why he passed on the role, Matt said, “I was talking with Greta, I was looking forward to doing it and then the things in development came to fruition, and I would have been away from my family for a year, which was just too much time away.”

When asked if he has any regrets on passing on Barbie, Matt responded, “No – I mean, I hope I get to work with Greta someday. She’s phenomenal. But I think they made a perfect movie, and it was cast perfectly.”

He added, “And I got to do Fellow Travelers and Maestro and spend time with my family.”
