Ricky Gervais: After the Golden Globes, it's back to 'The Office'
America, Ricky Gervais isn't done with us yet. Next stop? Scranton, Pa.
With Sunday's controversial Golden Globes-hosting gig still fresh in our minds, today comes news that Gervais will reprise his role as David Brent -- the original boss of the U.K. version of "The Office" -- on the Steve Carell-led stateside version.
The cameo will reportedly air on Jan. 27. Though details are sketchy, Gervais will -- according to Michael Ausiello -- run into his American counterpart. Comedy, we assume, ensues.
This isn't Gervais' first foray into scripted TV for Yanks. His show "Extras," originally created for the BBC, also aired on HBO for two seasons. Gervais also penned an episode of "The Simpsons" and an episode, "The Convict," of the American version of "The Office."
After the jump, a look at Gervais at work in the U.K. version...
