A week after revealing Matt LeBlanc as a star addition to the re-vamped ‘Top Gear’ line-up, Chris Evans has now revealed the full list of his co-presenters for when the motoring show returns to BBC2 later this year – and there’s a lot of them!

Formula 1 commentator and former team owner Eddie Jordan and German racing driver Sabine Schmitz have been added, as well as motoring journalist Chris Harris and newcomer Rory Reid, who was selected from 30-second video auditions.

“A magnificent seven sent from motoring heaven,” Evans said on Thursday in a press release unveiling the line-up. “Well, six plus one. Six plus me… we really do have a bit of everything for everyone.”

Matt Leblanc Finds Another Friend In New Sitcom


Friends Matt Le Blanc

Days after he was named a new co-host of long-running BBC car show Top Gear, the former Friends actor will lead and executive produce a multi-cam series for America's CBS network.

Created by husband-and-wife team Jackie and Jeff Filgo - the writers of That '70s Show, I'm Not Your Friend centres on a contractor (LeBlanc) who discovers that raising kids is more challenging than he thought after his wife goes back to work.

The new sitcom adds to a busy slate for LeBlanc, who is gearing up to film his fifth season of Episodes. He is set to make his Top Gear debut when the revamped series returns in May (16).

Matt Leblanc: 'I Never Said I Came Close To Having A Nervous Breakdown'


Matt Le Blanc

Editors at Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper reported the star plunged into a "dark time" as he gave up on acting and retreated from the spotlight following the cancellation of the comedy show in 2006.

"For years and years, I barely left the house," he reportedly told the tabloid. "I was burnt out. I wanted to not have a schedule, not be somewhere.

"I was in a position to do that. My agent was bummed. Most actors call their agents and say, 'What's going on?' I'd call mine and say, 'Please lose my number for a few years'. It was a very dark time. I almost had a nervous breakdown."

"For years and years, I barely left the house. I was burnt out. I wanted to not have a schedule, not be somewhere," he told Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper.

Matt Leblanc: 'New Top Gear Pairing Is Like Joey And Chandler'


Matt Le Blanc

The actor, best known for playing Joey Tribbiani in 10 seasons of Friends, will team up with the British TV and radio host to present a new version of the popular motoring show, which is reportedly the most widely watched factual television programme in the world.

Matt reveals he was stunned by the response to his appointment, which hit headlines across the globe on Thursday (04Feb16), and he retreated to the sanctuary of a bar at his home in California to escape the attention.

"I can't believe the response. I mean I knew Top Gear was a big show, but, wow, it was on the front page of The New York Times, did you know that?" he tells Chris on his BBC Radio 2 show. "There was so much I couldn't read it all, my publicist said 'Did you know it's on the front page of The New York Times?' My day has been, thanks to Top Gear and the BBC, my day has been ducking paparazzi all day long, and now I'm relaxing with a glass of wine at my bar."

Brand new ‘Top Gear’ co-host Matt LeBlanc has expressed astonishment at the response to his selection as Chris Evans’ sidekick for the rebooted motoring show.

The former ‘Friends’ star, 48, appeared on Evans’ BBC Radio 2 breakfast show on Friday morning (February 5th) to give listeners a little preview of what their on-screen chemistry might be like when ‘Top Gear’ returns later in 2016.

Apparently, he had no idea that the announcement would be so well-publicised. “I can't believe the response,” he said. “I mean I knew ‘Top Gear’ was a big show, but, wow, it was on the front page of The New York Times, did you know that? There was so much I couldn’t read it all.”

'Top Gear' Reveals Matt LeBlanc As Chris Evans' Co-Host


Matt Le Blanc Chris Evans

Following a troubled few months of planning and production, the BBC has announced a major name as one of Chris Evans’ co-hosts of ‘Top Gear’ – former ‘Friends’ star Matt LeBlanc!

The 48 year old American actor is set to be the first non-British host of the motoring show in its 39 year history. Back when it was under the aegis of the now-sacked Jeremy Clarkson, LeBlanc twice appeared as a guest on the show in its ‘star in a reasonably priced car’ segment, and holds the record for the fastest ever lap by a celebrity around the test track.

“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,” said LeBlanc in a statement when the news was announced on Thursday (February 4th). “What a thrill!”
