Matt Le Blanc joins Top Gear

Matt LeBlanc, most notably known from his role as Joey in the hugely successful Friends TV series, has joined the new line up of Top Gear as one of the new presenters!

The Friends actor now joins Chris Evans and potentially Eddy Jordan, in time for the launch of the new Top Gear series this May.

LeBlanc confirmed himself as a car fanatic saying ..

“As a car nut and a massive fan of Top Gear, I’m honored and excited to be a part of this iconic show’s new chapter. What a thrill!”

At the official press conference, Chris Evans joked also that Matt LeBlanc is a ‘lifelong petrol-head’.

“Acting out our craziest car notions on screen is a dream job and I know we’ll both be debating some epic road trip ideas,” Evans continued.

This isn’t the first time that Matt LeBlanc has made an appearance on Top Gear though. In 2012, LeBlanc set the fastest time ever in the “Star in a Reasonably Priced Car segment”.

Specifically – and officially – LeBlanc set a record and yet to be beaten time of 1 minute, 42.1 seconds for top leaderboard placement.

A friend of the show and a friend of the fans … we wish Matt LeBlanc all the very best.
