English Actor, Musician, Writer, Director, Animal Rights Activist and overall amazing person Ricky Gervais has landed! Although he was in town recently location scouting for new Film SPECIAL CORRESPONDENTS, the Funnyman is back for a quick visit to prepare for production on the Film. The Wartime Satire is an Adaptation of the French Film of the same name.
Many of us know him for his work on the British version of The Office, a string of successful Films in North America including Muppets Most Wanted and acclaimed Netflix Series Derek, but the three-time Golden Globes Host is tirelessly raising awareness via Social Media for ethical treatment of Animals and in 2013 was named PETA‘s Person of the Year.
Gervais arrived from England in Toronto tonight with his longtime Partner, Author Jane Fallon. Both were all smiles after a long flight, stopping graciously for Photos with Fans before heading into their SUV. Despite his joking about his weight gain on Social Media, Gervais looked great, rocking a New York Yankees Ballcap!
For a glimpse of what the original Special Correspondents looked like, watch this:
