Ricky Gervais to return to The Office

Ricky Gervais has confirmed he will reprise the role of David Brent to appear in an episode of the US version of The Office.

“I think it would be funny for David Brent to walk into the US Office and hear them go, ‘Oh my god, there’s two of them!’” the comedian told The Sun.

“Michael Scott could just bump into Brent, who is a bloke from England,” Gervais continued. “I don’t think we’ll take any of the other UK characters over, we’ll probably leave it with just me because it’s just too complicated.”

Ricky also admitted he has made more money from the US Office, now in its seventh season, as a producer, than he did in the UK version, which aired on the BBC for two seasons.

    Correction – The Office (U.S.) is currently in its sixth season, not seventh.

    Oohh.. really not sure about this. The 2 series of The Office were perfect – I wouldn\’t want their memory tarnished with some dodgy cameo. The US series is pretty entertaining but it has quite a different feel.. not sure Brent would really work there. Oh well, fingers crossed they don\’t mess it up. By the way has Gervias had his eyebrows plucked in that pic? He\’s looking a bit \’Seona Dancing\’ isn\’t he. (ie – completely bent.)

    Ach it\’s just a cameo (if it goes ahead) it\’s not like they are going to unravel everythinganything Brent has done in the past 7 – 8 years in one short cameo appearance.

    Ricky Gervais is as funny as a hole in the head. Someone likes wasting money on a series which is a load of crap

    Gervais is comedy genius – he\’s done a heck of a lot since the original Office. I like the US version, and yes it is different in style, but I think that a Brent/Scott mash-up would be something classic!Are there plans to do a \’Return to The Office\’ to see how Wernham Hogg staff have moved on (or in the case of Gareth, not)? That would be entertaining.I think the US version should be winding down soon. Gervais definitely did the right thing by limiting it to two series (as with Extras) It just kept it fresh, even looking back on it now….. actually I\’m gonna pop the DVD in now for some more Brent-isms.

    Gervais isnt funny,his woeful performance at the Princess Diana memorial show and then the recent Golden Globes proved that he cant work without a scriptBy reading his quote ,just full of his own self importance,snug little sh1t!!

    How are we supposed to believe this? in what scenario would Ricky Gervais do an interview with the Sun? He\’s not retarded.
