Ricky Gervais has confirmed he will feature in next season's Curb Your Enthusiasm,' and dubbed it "an honour" to be a part of the Larry David show.
Gervais said he would appear as himself in upcoming season, but did not reveal the storyline.
"I was offered a role a few seasons back but couldn’t do it as I was filming Extras, I’ve always wanted to work with Larry as I consider him one of the most important comedic minds of the past 50 years. He is also one of the nicest people I know."
David said of Gervais: ‘He’s one of the funniest people I’ve ever met. I also used to watch Extras and think, I wish I’d thought of that.’
The series will be filmed this summer in New York, where Gervais has an apartment.
"It’s perfect for me as I can walk to work, I won’t walk obviously. I’ll take a limo. But I could walk if I had to." said Gervais.
Ricky, Steve Merchant and Karl Pilkington have also done a free 'Guide to...' podcast about the World Cup which you can download here!
