British actor signs on for new LeBlanc comedy

English actor Richard Griffiths has been locked in to appear on Matt LeBlanc’s new show Episodes.

62-year-old Griffiths will play a version of himself in the show which  centres on a British couple whose TV show is turned into a horrible American remake.

The Hollywood Reporter is claiming Griffiths’ character will be “too sophisticated” to star in the American remake and will be replaced by LeBlanc.

Episodes was forced to look for two news stars after Thomas Haden Church and Claire Forlani dropped out of the project which is currently in production.

Griffiths has appeared in the likes of the Harry Potter films, The History Boys and Adam Sandler comedy Bedtime Stories.
