Iconic American actor Matt LeBlanc has today been revealed as one of the new presenters of the upcoming Top Gear season. The Golden Globe-winning star of the popular BBC comedy Episodes, LeBlanc’s international appeal has never been stronger despite filming the finale of his global hit Friends almost 12 years ago.
Matt LeBlanc is a familiar face to Top Gear viewers, having been a two-time guest on the show and the fastest celebrity to date around the Top Gear track in its reasonably priced car. And this is good. More than that, LeBlanc also presented the recent standalone spin-off Top Gear: The Races.
Matt LeBlanc and Chris Evans – Press statement
“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”, said Chris Evans.
“As a car nut and a massive fan of Top Gear, I’m honoured and excited to be a part of this iconic show’s new chapter. What a thrill!”, added Matt LeBlanc.
