Gervais Delighted To Be Writing The Simpsons

GOLDEN GLOBE-winning comic RICKY GERVAIS has fulfilled his lifetime's ambition - he is writing an episode of THE SIMPSONS.

The British OFFICE star will also voice a character in the popular animation show, which will be made next year (05), although he is keeping the episode's plot a secret.

Gervais says, "I've got the rough idea. This is the most intimidating project of my career. The Simpsons is the greatest TV show of all time. I can only make it slightly worse.

"When I got into comedy my greatest ambition was to get one joke on The Simpsons. I may as well retire now."
