Matt LeBlanc Will Host Top Gear In 2017

Ignore that guy in the middle. With Chris Evans out of the picture for the hosting gig for the next season of Top Gear on the BBC, it's now confirmed that Matt LeBlanc -- former Friends star, Episodes star and certified car fanatic -- will be the sole host of the next season of the popular UK TV show.

From the BBC:

LeBlanc will be joined by Chris Harris and Rory Reid with regular appearances from Eddie Jordan, Sabine Schmitz and The Stig.

Having proved a big hit with viewers when he co-hosted the most recent series of Top Gear, American iconic actor LeBlanc has agreed a two series deal with the BBC.
