Matt LeBlanc has said he would consider reprising his role as Joey Tribbiani in hit TV show "Friends" -- because he could use the cash.

LeBlanc, who made more than $1 million per episode in seasons nine and 10 of the NBC comedy, was asked by TMZ if he would ever consider a reunion with the gang.

"I wish ... I could use the money," he joked as he left Craft restaurant with his girlfriend Andrea Anders late Saturday.

The New York-based sitcom ran from 1994 to 2004 but so far its cast members, including Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox, have shied away from committing to a movie version of the show.

"We are all so proud of the show and what we achieved," Aniston said in 2010. "We don't want to go and spoil that with a movie unless we know it's right."

LeBlanc, who was nominated three times for a Golden Globe award for his part in "Friends" and its spin-off show "Joey," finally won the coveted gong on Sunday.

The 44-year-old actor took the title of Best Actor in a Comedy or Musical for "Episodes" -- where he plays a fictional version of himself.

LeBlanc paid tribute to the show's writers, saying they "write a Matt LeBlanc who is way more interesting and fun. I wish I was him."
