Next week’s episode of The Office will guest star Ricky Gervais in his legendary comic role of David Brent. The episode, to air on January 27th, will only be a very small cameo, in which Michael Scott bumps into David Brent outside the office.
This particular episode called “The Seminar” will be about Andy’s attempts to improve his poor sales run by conducting a small business seminar. Brent and Scott’s scene was shot six months ago and until now was being kept under wraps.
Hopefully this episode can bring some of the comic value we know Gervais can offer. He needs to show something funny after his lackluster, dire performance hosting the Golden Globes last Sunday.
