Ricky Gervais’ David Brent Heading to American The Office

Ricky Gervais just filmed a cameo for the American version of The Office. Gervais, the creator of the original British version of The Office, will reprise his famous role as David Brent.

Don’t get too excited about having a full episode of David Brent and Michael Scott shenanigans though. It appears his cameo will be extremely short and will appear in the cold opening. From Vulture:

Vulture has learned that Ricky Gervais shot a top-secret cameo that will appear in the cold open of the January 27 episode of the NBC series.

“It’s a little more than if you blink, you’ll miss it, but if you don’t set your TiVo right, you’ll miss it,” says Office show-runner Paul Lieberstein.

Still, even if it’s just a cameo, I’m sure it will be funny.
