After his turn as divisive Golden Globes host, Ricky Gervais returns to less acerbic territory, reprising his role as David Brent in the newest episode of The Office U.S.. Just like we imagined in our wildest most lucid cheese dreams, David finally meets Steve Carell’s Michael Scott then shares a polite conversation, some racial insensitivity and a manly embrace as David inquires about job vacancies.
With Carell’s imminent departure and no word yet on his successor, could Gervais skip the pond and reprise his role in America? They could just be fucking with us of course. They’re fucking with us, right? OK they’re just fucking with us. That’s what happens worlds collide.
