While I was convalescing yesterday I managed to hear Terry Gross interview Ricky Gervais on Fresh Air.
Gervais was also interviewed by Esquire recently where he mentioned that we’ll never see David Brent again and that he wouldn’t have moved Jim to the Stamford office if he were writing the US version of The Office.
ESQ: Do you ever watch and say, “Eh, I wouldn’t have done that.”
RG: Personally, I wouldn’t have had Jim leave to work in another office, because I wanted the claustrophobia. But that’s why we stopped after 12 [episodes].
