Ricky Gervais: 'David Brent movie is almost a musical'

28 August 2014 9:48 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Ricky Gervais has said that his forthcoming David Brent movie Life on the Road is "almost a musical".

The Office's creator shed light on the project, which will begin production next year, during an appearance on the Opie with Jim Norton show.

"It's another fake documentary about what he's doing now and what he's doing now is sort of repping," Gervais said.

"But he hasn't let go of this dream of being a rock star and he's got a lot of songs together and he's got a young band together that he's paying through the nose for, and they're just sort of ripping him off. They're sort of session musicians so he's losing money.

"He has to cash in a pension, he does a little tour he wants the record companies to come along to. Obviously he thinks it's like Scorsese following the Rolling Stones around, this documentary team, »

Muppets Most Wanted Blu-ray Review

27 August 2014 6:53 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The Muppets returned to the big screen with a self-titled relaunch in 2011, and it was met with a lot of excitement from fans, but was not a runaway success.  The follow up Muppets Most Wanted was received with less enthusiasm, and barely made fifty million domestically.  Which is too bad as it’s the slightly better film.  Tina Fey, Ricky Gervais, and Ty Burrell are the main humans and are joined by all the main Muppets (like Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzie and more) in this European caper.  My review of the Muppets Most Wanted Blu-ray of the film follows after the jump. Picking up seconds after the last film ended, the gang realize they’re doing a sequel and sing a song about how they’re back though they know that sequels usually aren’t as good as the first (and also note that this is actually the seventh film in the franchise, »

According to a study for U.K. newspaper The Sunday Times, Morgan receives abuse in 8.7 percent of tweets sent to him, higher than any other U.K. celebrity. Ricky Gervais, another prolific Twitter user, receives abuse in 2.6 percent. The study,

Ricky Gervais Crashes ‘House of Cards,’ ‘Orange Is the New Black’ in New Ad

26 August 2014 3:45 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Netflix may have left the Monday night’s Emmy ceremony empty-handed, but the streaming site did manage to fit in some face-time during the show with a new ad featuring Ricky Gervais.

The “Derek” star opens the ad lounging in front of the television, taking in the Netflix fare and musing, “You know when you’re watching your favorite Netflix show and after five straight episodes, you want to be in it?”

The spot takes Gervais into the action on “House of Cards” (complete with a Kevin Spacey impression), “Orange Is the New Black” and “Lilyhammer,” with appearances from members of the three series’ casts.

“Maybe I’m better off just watching,” Gervais decides.

Outtakes from the ad can also be found below.

Here’s our party timeline:

2014 Emmy Award Winners Dominated by 'Breaking Bad'

26 August 2014 7:33 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Last night the 2014 Emmy Award winners were announced with "Breaking Bad" taking home top honors with five wings including Outstanding Drama Series, followed by "Modern Family" with three wins including Outstanding Comedy Series. FX programs "American Horror Story: Coven" and "Fargo" each took home two awards including an Outstanding Miniseries win for "Fargo". Meanwhile, new shows such as "Orange is the New Black" and "Silicon Valley" went home empty handed and for all the fanfare it received in its first season, including 12 Emmy nominations, "True Detective" only took home one win, that being for director Cary Joji Fukunaga". Personally, I don't give a lick about the Emmys, it's right there with the Grammys in terms of worthless awards shows for me. It's a show wherein people must nominate themselves and while most award shows are no better, this one is down there near the bottom for me. So, with that said, »

5 Biggest Jaw-Droppers at the 2014 Emmy Awards

26 August 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

If a show wins Best Comedy Series for the fifth year in a row, is that still considered a surprise? We ponder that and other Wtf moments that peppered an overall pretty staid 66th Primetime Emmy Awards. The three-hours-and-no-more (there seemed to be some serious speed-reading going on tonight) ceremony was capably hosted by Seth Meyers, with major assists from his former SNL right-hand funnywoman Amy Poehler, Ricky Gervais, Jimmy Kimmel and the very mention of the word "Beyoncé." But even during a show light on drama, either of the scripted or spontaneous variety, there were still a handful of moments that had us reaching for the rewind button: 1.

Breaking Bad Tops True Detective at the 66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards

26 August 2014 2:47 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Breaking Bad’s amazing final season always meant that it was a likely winner come awards season. However, the debut of the critically acclaimed True Detective earlier this year did leave many wondering whether it might rob the end to Walter White’s story of one final sweep of prizes at last night’s Emmy Awards.

As it turns out, Breaking Bad would end up being rewarded for those amazing final episodes, though True Detective did earn a very well deserved award for director Cary Joji Fukunaga (who helmed all eight instalments).

The UK was represented by Sherlock, and that too did exceptionally well, walking away with Emmys for Benedict Cumberbatch, Martin Freeman and writer Steven Moffat. Looking at the results, it’s hard to imagine anyone being too upset with the results, though many Game of Thrones fans won’t be happy to see that it was again snubbed. »
