Ricky Gervais Is Heading to The Office

It’s like a TV fantasy come true: Fictional bosses from hell David Brent and Michael Scott will face off in the January 27th episode of The Office according to TVline’s Michael Ausiello. The details are still sketchy, but we’re hoping that this could lead to Ricky Gervais having a more permanent role on the show. He’d certainly make a better replacement for Steve Carell than some of the other names that have been floating around — like Harvey Keitel — and for fans of the British version of The Office, it would be a nice continuation of character whose on-screen life was way too brief. What do you think? Would you tune in to watch Ricky Gervais?
