Matt LeBlanc has seemingly locked down his first Top Gear guest


While most of us are still processing the surprise news that Matt LeBlanc is joining Top Gear, he seems to already be securing guests for the show.

The former Friends star recently lined up alongside British actor Stephen Mangan on Episodes, and it looks as though Mangan already has an open invitation to join LeBlanc in the studio.

LeBlanc set a new best time when he appeared in the ‘star in a reasonably-priced car’ segment, and now Green Wing actor Mangan has the opportunity to go one better.

LeBlanc’s move to Top Gear was such a shock that not a single person bet on the outcome, but the 48-year-old looks like a perfect fit for the show.

And while Mangan is perhaps less experienced, we already know the pair have a great rapport in front of the camera.
