Seems Ricky Gervais wasn’t quite ready to give up on David Brent, his character from the very popular TV show, The Office. His current YouTube series “Learn Guitar with David Brent” is Gervais’s most recent example of breathing fresh air into the fictional character. Gervais tells Hollywood Reporter that he hopes to get a record deal for David Brent, in which he can preform charity concerts as David Brent. If that wasn’t enough, Gervais continues on even mentioning his hopes for an eventual movie, “a movie about Brent trying to make it in the music industry,” which would be based on the plot in The Office Revised. There’s a lot going on for the potential rock star. Will Gervais’s ambitions for the fictional goofball turn to reality? Only time will tell.
Gervais’ latest project, Derek, will premiere on Netflix on September 12. The show is a dramedy about caretakers in a retirement home.
