Ricky Gervais To Make TV Series From Golden Globes Gigs
BEFORE he presented the Golden Globes (twice), Ricky Gervais was notable for rubbing his legs on TV chatshows and affecting the air of the mocking Brit in a sea of American superegos. Now he is famous for being the frontman of the Golden Globes, an entertainment biz AGM where he gets to mock big names, who can take the joshing as only truly secure stars can.
So good is Gervais at this role that the keepers of the Golden Globes have invited him back to present the do a third time. Says he: “I don’t think I should.”
He should do it. Gervais should do it eight times and then create a TV series from the highlights, fallout and backstage shtick. You can see the target of the joke appearing as a Special Guest Star in each episode.
Ricky, call me, I have ideas…
