Ricky Gervais may not be returning as Golden Globes host next year, but the comedian will be reprising his role on the NBC hit sitcom, The Office!
Ricky will be returning to his role as David Brent, Entertainment Weekly reports, the original boss in the UK version of the show.
The British comedian was the co-creator of the original Office which launched across the pond before the successful NBC sitcom blew-up stateside.
Ricky will guest star on the Jan. 27 episodes and his cameo, according to EW, involves Brent a running into his U.S. edition counterpart Michael Scott, the beloved Steve Carell.
NBC wanted to keep Ricky’s cameo a secret, but with Ricky being at the forefront of entertainment news since he hosted the Golden Globes, news of his role leaked early!
Some found the comedian’s humor at the Globes too hard-hitting where others classified it as brilliant and candid (especially is fellow comics). The debate still rages on.
