It looks like The Office crossover we all wondered would ever happen is…happening. In an interview with British newspaper/boobie mag The Sun, Ricky Gervais announced that David Brent would be making the trip to Scranton, Pennsylvania.
“I think it would be funny for David Brent to walk into the US Office and hear them go, ‘Oh my god, there’s two of them!’ We don’t need to know about Brent’s back story – the English Office exists in a cocoon and in the DVD. Michael Scott could just bump into Brent, who is a bloke from England. I don’t think we’ll take any of the other UK characters over – we’ll probably leave it with just me because it’s just too complicated.”
I think this is going to inject some much needed funny into a season that’s seen its highs and lows, but mostly lows. No word yet on when the episode will air, or how many times Gervais will be able to say the word “****.”
