The Office star Ricky Gervais has spurned a succession of big money
Hollywood offers, because he is scared of starring in a flop.
The British funnyman, who has won a Golden Globe and numerous BAFTAS for
his role in as David Brent in THE OFFICE, but is concerned that the parts he is
being offered will make him a laughing stock - in the wrong way.
He says, "I was offered ridiculous things such as a remake of Magnum Pi
with George Clooney and me as his butler. Here's another with me and Will Smith
- they wanted me to play his brother. Words fail me."
