'Thanks For A Great Drive': Matt LeBlanc QUITS Top Gear
Star of Top Gear, Episodes and Man With A Plan, Matt LeBlanc has been racking up the air miles as he flits across the pond to shoot.
But in a shock revelation, the Friends star has QUIT Top Gear, citing too much time spent away from his loved ones.
“The time commitment and extensive travel required to present Top Gear takes me away from my family and friends more than I'm comfortable with,” said LeBlanc, who played Porshe-loving Joey.
"It's unfortunate, but for these reasons I will not be continuing my involvement with the show. I will forever be a Top Gear fan and I wish the team continued success.”
BBC Two controller Patrick Holland said:
"Matt has thrown himself into the show with real passion, revealing his extraordinary car knowledge and a willingness to get down and dirty,” BBC Two controller Patrick Holland said.
"We were always going to be borrowing him from his day job as one of the top comic actors in Hollywood so I wish him all the very best.”
They're not wrong there. And hey, if this frees him up for a Friends reunion, we are totally on board...
