‘The Office’, which introduced the world to Gervais’s most famous comic creation David Brent, is getting the big screen treatment, which will see the deluded branch manager pursuing his dream of becoming a rock star with his band, Foregone Conclusion.

British actor Martin Freeman revisited his comedy roots this weekend (13-14Dec14) by combining his characters from Tv sitcom The Office and blockbuster movie franchise The Hobbit for an hilarious sketch on America's Saturday Night Live.
The 43 year old, who served as Snl's guest host, reprised his role as paper salesman Tim Canterbury in the original U.K. version of The Office, but gave his character a Tolkien twist by donning his shaggy wig and pointed ears from The Hobbit films in a segment titled The Office: Middle Earth.
The flashback sequence featured other Snl regulars dressed up as Middle Earth characters, including Bobby Moynihan as wizard Gandalf to portray company boss David Brent, who referred to Freeman as "Dildo Baggins", and Taran Killam, who played Gollum, complete with a high-pitched voice.

We'll miss the work-place antics
Never has a U.K import been so popular. The U.S Office is finally shutting down after nine seasons of awkward silences, work-place japes and, of course, paperwork.
A remake of David Brent’s original British comedy, which lasted two seasons in the U.K, the American version displayed greater longevity, but that’s not what the show runners predicted. In fact, the first season wasn’t received nearly as warmly as the subsequent eight. "I just wanted to do something with a faithful tone," executive producer Greg Daniels says.
Will Steve Carell make a Brent-like return? Will Brent make a Brent-like return!?
