Brent is back! Before Steve Carell settled into his role as Michael Scott, there was the BBC version of The Office where creator Ricky Gervais took on the managerial role of David Brent. Now, as the American Office nears its final episode (the British Office went off the air in 2003), Gervais has reprised his hilarious role in a 10-minute, must-watch clip.
"I thought it was time to revisit my most famous comedy creation to find out what he’s been up to for the last decade and most importantly what he’s up to now," Gervais, 51, wrote on his blog this past Februaty. The funnyman reprised his breakout role in support of Comic Relief.
In a mini-episode titled The Office Revisited, the documentary filmmakers find Brent selling cleaning products, but he still hasn't lost his dream of making it in music. "Fans of The Office will be excited to know we finally get to hear the whole of The Serpent Who Guards The Gates Of Hell and an amazingly cringe-worthy, self-funded video Equality Street. Horrendous," Gervais teased.
The Office reunion was part of the UK’s Red Nose Day telethon that aired on BBC One.
