Matt LeBlanc says he's doing a sitcom in England



tbd-mattleblanc092410.jpgNow that we know Jennifer Aniston's career is swirling down the drain, what's going on with Matt LeBlanc? Well, for one, he doesn't like it when British gossip columnists call him Joey.

"I'm not Joey. Don't you dare call me Joey. The papers say I'm finished, so don't call me f---ing Joey," he told the writer behind the 3 a.m. column in the U.K.'s Mirror. "I want to leave that all behind. I'm moving on."
A surly LeBlanc was apparently on a bender at a London nightclub at the time, so the question remains, what's going on with Joey?
"It's Matt. Matt LeBlanc. Joey's in the past. I'm trying to do something new," he insisted. "I'm gonna do comedy. Working with the Friends producers to do comedy in England. And it's got nothing to do with Joey, before you ask."
A British sitcom? That should be good for seven episodes or so. And that's how he's doin'.
