Ricky Gervais on 60 Minutes

Watch CBS News Videos Online

As part of our site’s TV of the 2000s feature, Will Harris recently examined why certain British series couldn’t translate as well in America as “The Office.” The original series was created by Ricky Gervais, who also served as its star, co-writer, and co-director. While he’s reached international stardom in recent years, only comedy nerds and Brits generally know his complete journey. Last night, “60 Minutes” ran an interesting piece focusing on his humble beginnings, mid-life struggles, and sudden success.

Gervais is a candid interview. Rather than humor Lesley Stahl, he offers his blunt opinion on talent, celebrity, and money. Check it out.
