Matt LeBlanc, best known for his role as Joey in Friends, is to join the Top Gear presenting team.
LeBlanc, who now stars in Extras, joins Chris Evans as part of the show's new presenting line-up.
The actor becomes the first foreign presenter of the show and will begin his tenure when the series returns in May.
Speaking about LeBlanc's arrival, Evans said: “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."
LeBlanc himself added: “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!”
An additional presenter is expected to be confirmed shortly.
