Ricky Gervais Will Visit ‘The Office’

Wednesday, January 19 by

Now he’s fixing to offend Judd Apatow’s friends one by one. Ricky Gervais is confirmed to reprise the role that made him famous on a three episode arc of”The Office” later this season.

David Brent will head to Scranton to square off against Steve Carell’s Michael Scott. Of course, details are really sketchy right now and we don’t know if this will tie in to Carell’s leaving the show but we do know it will be cringe-worthy one way or another.

I’d imagine things would get pretty surreal for Brent when he realizes that he’s surrounded by American versions of all his friends. It could double as an episode of “The Twilight Zone.” (TV Line)

    Terrible. These are the ideas television shows come up with when they are about to jump the shark.
