Ricky Gervais: Johnny Depp Will Appear on New Show

Comedian blogs that Depp will appear on ”Life’s Too Short“

It sounds like Johnny Depp can take a joke: The actor will shrug of a few Golden Globes jokes to appear in Ricky Gervais' new series, "LIfe's Too Short," Gervais says.

Gervais said on his blog that he could confirm Depp's appearance on the series, which will be for BBC2 but is expected to air on HBO2.

Gervais joked at the Golden Globes that everything seemed to be animated in 2010, "except the characters in 'The Tourist,'" in which Depp and Angelina Jolie starred. Later, he added that he was kidding: "I haven't even seen 'The Tourist'… who has?"

A rep for Depp did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
