Johnny Depp is set to guest star in Ricky Gervais' new sitcom.
The 47-year-old actor – who was the butt of one of 'The Office' star's jibes at this year's Golden Globes, when he described Johnny's acting in 'The Tourist' as one-dimensional – is reportedly being lined up for a role in Gervais and sidekick Stephen Merchant's new BBC Two sitcom 'Life's Too Short'.
It would appear Depp took Golden Globes host Ricky's jokes on the chin, as he has a "great sense of humour".
An insider told The Sun newspaper: "Johnny will guest star in Ricky's new BBC Two show. He's trying to work out his schedule but it will definitely go ahead.
"Johnny is a huge fan of Ricky's and has a great sense of humour. He has wanted to work with Ricky for ages and this is it."
Filming for the show – which will also be screened on the HBO channel in the US – begins in May and will document the tale of an ego-maniac little person (Warwick Davis) who runs a talent agency for other similarly sized actors and singers.
'Life's Too Short' has been described between Ricky Gervais' 'Extras' and American comedy series 'Curb Your Enthusiasm'.
