Ricky Gervais is back…
By Roger Friedman
HollywoodNews.com: Ricky Gervais visited “The Office” last night. On Golden Globe night, you may recall, he told me: “Watch the show on January 27th. It will give you a good idea who’s going to run The Office next.” Uh huh. It does seem from the clip (below) and Ricky’s comments, that Gervais’s original character, David Brent, may be replacing Michael Scott (Steve Carell) at Dunder Mifflin. It would be a coup for NBC and for everyone.
The British “Office” only had a short run. And it does seem that Carell is leaving the American show four weeks before the end of the season–not in sweeps but in April–to give the show a cushion between stars.
