It's looking increasingly like Matt LeBlanc will be there for us well past Friends's swan song in May 2004. According to The Hollywood Reporter, LeBlanc is nearing a deal to headline a spinoff built around his Joey Tribbiani character. Friends exec producers Scott Silveri and Shana Goldberg-Meehan would likely pen the pilot script and serve as showrunners. Rumor has it, the spinoff would find Joey moving to Hollywood to pursue his acting career.
