Ricky Gervais: Johnny Depp, You’re Hired!
Ricky Gervais as cast Johnny Depp to star in his new sitcom.
Ricky Gervais’s blistering Golden Globe monologue and hosting gig spared few as he took shots at nearly everyone in attendance. Johnny Depp, now certified Hollywood royalty, was not off limits. Gervais took aim at him to some degree, but mostly he savaged Depp’s movie The Tourist. Both Depp and the movie were nominated that night and many, Gervais included, felt like the movie, Depp and Angelina Jolie were all nominated simply so they would show up to the show and add their star power to the event.
The different is that Ricky Gervais didn’t hold his tongue and let the world know how he felt about it all. At the time Johnny Depp didn’t appear very happy about the jabs, but it seems he has taken them in stride. Today the story leaked that Depp will be appearing in Gervais’s new BBC2 sitcom Life’s Too Short.
There were rumors that Jerry Seinfeld would also guest star on the show, but Ricky Gervais has said there is no truth to that rumor. While there are no real details about what role Johnny Depp will play in the show or if the guest spot will be for more than just one episode we do know that the show will air in the US on HBO who Gervais has a long term relationship with.
We will keep you posted as we get more information on this story.
