You're along the right lines.  To forward ALL mail to guy@address.com, use the following line:

  FORWARD To . guy@address.com

If you want to forward all of the stuff from a given list to guy@address.com, then you'd need a line like this:

  FORWARD From somelist@something.com guy@address.com

You can combine both, but the catch-all one would need to be last, such as:

  FORWARD From somelist@something.com guys_friend@address.com
  FORWARD To . guy@address.com

Which would send all but the list traffic to guy@address.com.
