Ricky GervaisRicky Gervais is returning to TV after landing a role alongside his comedy idol Larry David in the next season of Curb Your Enthusiasm.
The pair will shoot the eighth season of the hit show this summer in New York City, after the comedy relocated from Los Angeles.

Gervais tells, "I was offered a role a few seasons back but couldn't do it as I was filming Extras. I've always wanted to work with Larry as I consider him one of the most important comedic minds of the past 50 years. He is also one of the nicest people I know."

And he's looking forward to working in the Big Apple, where he has a home.

He adds, "It's perfect for me as I can walk to work. I won't walk obviously. I'll take a limo. But I could walk if I had to."
