He hit the headlines when Chris Evans announced he’d be joining the Top Gear line-up last week but Matt LeBlanc may not have much time for cars if his latest comedy venture is a success.
Variety reports that the Friends star is taking the lead in a new CBS comedy pilot and if it’s picked up, he’ll certainly be kept busy.
The aptly titled I’m Not Your Friend (geddit?) sees LeBlanc starring as a contractor who takes over the responsibility of raising his kids when his wife goes back to work. And, of course, he learns that there’s a LOT more to it than he expected.
It’s a bit of a no-brainer for the actor, who’s had great success with Episodes but would probably rather forget Friends spin-off Joey ever happened. You see, according to Variety, he’s signed up with a ‘series commitment’, meaning that if the show ISN’T picked up for a full run, he’ll still get quite a bit of cash.
More than enough to pick up a reasonably priced car, some might assume.
