Ricky Gervais Has A New Dramatic Role

Well look who we have here! I almost didn’t recognize who this was at first. ”The Office” star Ricky Gervais was spotted filming a series for Channel 4 called “Derek,” in London, England on Monday afternoon.

It looks like Ricky is taking a step away from his usual comedic roles to play Derek, a learning disabled man who works at an old people’s home. Could this be a segue to more dramatic roles for him? Either way I hope he still sticks to comedy because that is what he does best. No one does the Golden Globes like he does.
