Gervais to appear on Curb?

Larry David's asked him to...

Ricky Gervais is set to make an appearance in the next series of Curb Your Enthusiasm.

Although creator Larry David has not yet confirmed that the acclaimed comedy will return for an eighth season, he has asked The Office creator to be in it.

David told American entertainment website E! online that an announcement on the future of the show would be made in a month or so, adding that he wanted Gervais to be in it.

‘I think Ricky Gervais is one of the funniest guys I've ever met,’ he said.

Through his publicist, Gervais told Chortle: ‘We have been trying to work together for a while. In fact I was offered a part in Curb a couple of years ago but could not do it, due to other filming commitments.

‘I would love to do anything with Larry. I am also going to offer him a part in the Flanimals movie because he is amazing.’

David and Gervais recently appeared together on Jerry Seinfeld’s new US show, The Marriage Ref.

And Curb Your Enthusiasm is shown on HBO in the States, the premium cable network that has just picked up a second series of The Ricky Gervais Show - the animated version of his podcast.
