Best known for his role in NBC’s sitcom Friends, where he played Joey Tribbiani,  Matt leBlanc has joined the new BBC’s Top Gear, along with Chris Evans as a host.

As a car nut and massive fan of Top Gear, I’m honored and excited to be a part of this iconic show’s new chapter. What a thrill!“, the 48-year old actor said.

Chris Evans commented: “Matt’s a lifelong fellow petrolhead and I’m thrilled he’s joining Top Gear. 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. We can’t wait to share what we’ve been up to on screen later this year.”
