Matt LeBlanc is going to be putting on the miles, both on the ground and in the air.
The Los Angeles-based “Friend” has signed on as the host of “Top Gear” for two more seasons, the BBC confirmed on Monday.
The Sun reports that the deal is worth $2.5 million for what will likely be a total of 12-16 episodes.
LeBlanc was one of two hosts when "Top Gear" was relaunched in May after the loss of its longstanding team of presenters. His co-host, Chris Evans, quit in July after the show drew lackluster ratings and lukewarm reviews.
A mix of humor, stunts and automotive advice, "Top Gear" became a global hit under presenters Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May.
The trio left last year after an off-set dustup in which Clarkson punched a producer. They are hosting a new car show, "The Grand Tour," on Amazon Prime.
