Jan 20, (THAINDIAN NEWS) Ace British comedian Ricky Gervais is gearing up to do his David Brent in the US version of The Office. Recently he attracted a lot of attention for the fiasco he made at the recently held Golden Globe awards ceremony. He will make a cameo appearance in the show on January 27th as it has been reported. In UK the Office turned out to be a hit with the viewers and it was created by Stephen Merchant and him. In US TV circuit, NBC remade it. The counterpart of Brent is played in the US version of the show by Steve Carell. The 49 year old comedian is The Office’s executive producer and the show is running in its 7th series now.
The UK version of The Office continued its run for two seasons. Ricky Gervais was subjected to criticism for poking fun of some actors and films at the golden Globe and a section of stars fired their salvo back at him. He however seems unperturbed by the reactions. He said on Piers Morgan show on a leading channel “It’s not my job to worry about what people think of me. That’s the job of a politician.” Some people are speculating that after this controversial second stint with Golden Globe he may not get another chance to act as the host of the coveted awards.
It is not known whether his cameo in The Office in USA will have something new for the viewers. His funny man act in the UK version proved to be hugely popular with the viewers. Another show starring him was also ported to US TV earlier.
