The American 'Office' (2011)
Having lived so long in their own spheres of influence, the inevitable meeting of the American Office's Michael Scott (Steve Carrell) and Gervais's David Brent went just as we'd expected: they get along swimmingly; they're two men whose raw vulnerability is the only thing that keeps them from getting punched in the mouth daily. "Comedy is a place where the mind goes to tickle itself. That's what she said!" David proclaims to Michael. Gervais will also be stopping by the season finale post-Carrell, along with Will Arnett; Gervais even revealed that David will be interviewing for Michael's position. Flying David to Pennsylvania is the perfect way to pass the mug to Dundler Miffin's new commander-in-chief, even if Gervais doesn't take up his mantle (which would actually be amazing).
