Although nothing’s 100 percent certain, reports are a float that Ricky Gervais is planning to reprise his iconic David Brent role for the U.S. version of The Office. Despite Gervais’ longstanding denial of such a riveting event, the comedian recently hinted at a change of heart during a press tour in support of his upcoming HBO animated series.

But it’s not just the tabloids who are in on this charade/breaking news. Entertainment Weekly columnist Michael Ausiello, believes that an NBC Office appearance by Gervais in the show’s sixth season is imminent. “I heard an unconfirmed rumor earlier today that Ricky Gervais was seriously considering reprising his role as original Office manager,” he wrote yesterday.  Maybe a move like this will have the suits at NBC sweating bullets of fear just a little less than they must have been lately.
