How Ricky Gervais Will Set His Office Spinoff Movie Apart

In his soon-to-shoot feature Life on the Road, Gervais will set the spin-off apart from its source material by leaving the office life behind and diving headlong into Brent's not-so-secret ambition: being a rock star.

 Rick Gervais' David Brent Is Back And Singing This Ridiculous Song

Even though we’d never want to actually deal with Ricky Gervais’ brilliantly aggravating David Brent on a daily basis, it certainly is a discomforting pleasure to have him back in our lives every so often. This may be our first peek into Brent’s upcoming transition to the silver screen, and there’s arguably no better way to experience this self-inflated buffoon than in song.

Watch Ricky Gervais Play Word Sneak With Jimmy Fallon On The Tonight Show

Ricky Gervais paid a visit to The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Naturally, words were exchanged. And not just the usual funny words one might expect from comedic-minded people like Ricky Gervais and Jimmy Fallon. The two engaged in an actual word game during Gervais' interview.

Muppets Most Wanted's Ricky Gervais And Constantine Debate Humans Vs. Frogs

In the film, which is directed by The Muppets’ James Bobin, Constantine and Gervais play two international criminals who hatch a plan to use Muppets European Tour as a cover to pull off some of the most impossible heists the world has ever seen.

Ricky Gervais To Return For Night At The Museum 3

The second picture also featured Ricky Gervais in a small role, and fortunately for those continuity nuts, he's back playing Dr. McPhee, the boss to Stiller’s frazzled security guard character Larry Daley.

The Muppets Most Wanted Teaser: Tina Fey Tries On A Russian Accent, And Scooter Moves Like Jagger

Whether or not you're going to like The Muppets Most Wanted is decided in the first seconds of this new teaser trailer, which debuted at Disney's website. If Animal screaming "sequel!" makes you laugh, you are going to look forward to this movie. If not, well, what were you doing in your childhood, anyway

The Office's David Brent Drops More Wisdom And Spaceman Lyrics In Ricky Gervais' Latest Video

So, unless I'm misinterpreting David Brent's words, he thinks he's like Winston Churchill or Mahatma Gandhi, but he's doing it with music. That's very wise. Also wise? Not being easily baited. Brent will talk about whether or not he's single, but he refuses to answer the "A-minor" question. Some cheeky fan though that was a good question to ask, but you can't get one past Brent, can you?

The Office's David Brent Gives Guitar Lessons In New Video

David Brent is back! Again! Ricky Gervais' beloved Office character is now offering guitar lessons to his fans. The video above popped up on Ricky Gervais' YouTube channel. Like Michael Scott, Brent is actually musically talented. But also like Michael Scott, he often doesn't know what he's talking about. What Brent lacks in actual wisdom, he makes up for in unintentional humor, and that's always what's worked so well for Gervais' character.

Ricky Gervais' Derek Hitting Netflix In September

We’ve known for a while that Derek would head to Netflix after airing in the U.K.; however, we didn’t know when the move to Netflix would be happening. On Tuesday it was announced that all seven episodes of Derek are set to hit Netflix on September 12. The date and time is extremely precise. Derek will hit the subscription streaming service at 12:01 a.m. PST on that date.

The Office U.S. Vs. The Office U.K.: Which Comedy Wins Out?

Some might argue that comparing art is a fruitless exercise. They'd probably be right. Pitting one work against the other in some kind of quality competition certainly goes against the spirit of any true artistic endeavour but sitcoms aren't really art and nobody likes fruit. Obviously, I'm kidding. Fruit is healthy as well as delicious. And sitcoms can occasionally be Art with a capital 'A.' Now, with that pretentious bit of rationalizing out of the way, what version of The Office is better? U.K. or U.S.?

Watch Ricky Gervais Bring The Office's David Brent Back For A 10-Minute Video

Fans of the original U.K. comedy The Office didn't need to raise money via Kickstarter to see Ricky Gervais returned to the role of David Brent. The comedian did that for charity with The Return of Brent, a 10-minute segment that returns us to the bizarre world of former Wernham Hogg Paper Company (Slough branch) regional manager David Brent to show us what he's been getting up to in recent years. As it happens, he's working on his music. Or someone else's.

Ricky Gervais Shares A Moment With Pepe The King Prawn On The Set Of The Muppets...Again!

t’s a great time to be a Muppets fan. Not that it ever wasn’t, but Jason Segel, Nick Stoller and James Bobin have modernized and revitalized a brand that was stuck in the world of TV specials that lacked the heart or humor featured in the projects of the past.

Ricky Gervais To Bring David Brent Back For The Office Revisited Mini Episode

Once upon a time, just before he became mega-famous on this side of the pond, Ricky Gervais starred in a little show called The Office. The U.K. series spawned the NBC comedy that's wrapping up this year, so the timing seems about right for David Brent to surface (again). And Ricky Gervais plans to make that happen for Comic Relief with a mini episode, which will air on BBC One next month.

Life's Too Short: The Complete First Season [DVD Review]

If “self-deprecating comedy” were a brand, the face of Ricky Gervais would be pasted all over it. Despite his fairly dismal ventures into filmmaking, Gervais and Stephen Merchant’s The Office and Extras are easily two of the funniest sitcoms to ever exist, and I’m fine with my favoritism showing. But when it comes to Life’s Too Short, the comedy just doesn’t measure up, because we’ve seen this already.

Ricky Gervais Debuts First Trailer For Derek

Last spring, the pilot episode for Ricky Gervais’ somewhat controversial new comedy series, Derek, aired in the UK on Channel 4. Subsequently, the series was picked up to air in 2013 and now, Gervais himself has kindly tweeted out the first trailer for the series.

Will Ricky Gervais Ruin The Muppets?

Yesterday Kristy wrote excitedly about the news that Ricky Gervais had been cast as the main human in the upcoming Muppets movie, saying "Personally, I couldn't be more excited about this news." At the same time, Katey bitterly tweeted "Ricky Gervais in the next Muppets movie is the quickest way to make me dread it. If you can't say anything nice… come sit by me."

Ricky Gervais In Talks To Play Human Lead In The Muppets Sequel

Last year around this time, audiences were freshly in love with the Muppets thanks to their Jason Segel-spurred resurrection with The Muppets. A blockbuster that won nearly universal praise from critics as well as the Academy Award for Best Song for "Man or Muppet," the latest Muppet movie demanded a sequel.

Ricky Gervais Says He'll Host SNL Next Year

Maybe seeing comedian pal Louis CK hosting Saturday Night Live has finally inspired Ricky Gervais to give the gig a shot. Or perhaps we're just lucky that another great comedian could be hosting SNL this season. Nothing has been announced by NBC yet, but from what Gervais says, we may just see the actor/comedian hosting an episode of the long-running sketch comedy series sometime next year.
