Ricky Gervais To Reprise David Brent Role
The actor-producer admitted it is 'a joy' to play the character again.
The stand-up star said he plans to film his next set of gigs in character as Brent for a 'tragic' comedy mockumentary."I'm thinking of filming a documentary of David Brent trying to be a pop star - he thinks it's like Scorsese doing the Rolling Stones, but really it's a Where Are They Now?", he explains.
"It's going to be tragic - it's not going to be what he thinks it is", he added.
"I didn't want to keep Brent going because I wanted to do other things.
"But now I've done other things, it feels safe to revisit it. It's a joy - I got hooked again", he explained.
But before the return of his beloved character, the comedian stars in series two of Derek, showing on Channel 4 on 23 April.
