Michael Scott and David Brent: best friends forever

A recent Sunday edition of the Chicago Tribune included a short Q&A with Ricky Gervais, star and producer of the original UK version of “The Office,” as well as executive producer of the US version.

The final question of the article was:

What do you think David Brent [boss of the BBC’s “The Office,” played by Gervais] and Michael Scott would enjoy doing together?

Ricky responds:

Getting drunk and showing off. It would be like Bill and Ted or “Dumb and Dumber.”

Now wouldn’t that be a splendid episode! Maybe they would meet and become friends at some international paper convention …
