Honestly, he would've been great in the role.

In an interview with USA Today, Matt revealed that he passed on the script because he didn't think he'd be good in the role of Phil, saying:

[The pilot script] came across my desk with an offer to play Ty Burrell’s. I remember reading it thinking, this is a really good script, (but) I’m not the guy for this. I’d be doing the project an injustice to take this. I know what I can do, I know what I can’t do. Plus, I’m having too much fun laying on the couch.
