Ricky Gervais Expresses His Excitement To Star In THE MUPPETS Sequel
Talking on a UK TV show earlier today, Ricky Gervais has revealed his love of The Muppets, briefly sharing his thoughts on what it was like to visit the set of the movie and commenting on how he feels about working alongside director James Bobin. Check it out!
"I look at The Muppets like they're real," British comedian and actor Ricky Gervais told the presenters of UK chat show 'This Morning' earlier today. "They are real! I'm in the next Muppets movie! It's great in that I know the director, he's fantastic and did the first one, but there's always room for collaboration. People listen to your ideas, I listen to people's ideas. When I'm in charge, we finish at three or four. The Muppet movie might go on until six! It's going to be hell [Laughs]." As for how he feels about the beloved Disney characters, the star of The Office and Extras had this to say. "I'm in awe of The Muppet's. I've loved them for like 35 years. I actually can't wait; I'm really excited. I was there yesterday on set and honestly, I'm like an eight year old at Christmas. I love it!" The actor can next be seen on Channel 4 in Derek alongside Karl Pilkington (who will be featured in Science Channel's An Idiot Abroad this Saturday).
