Comedy legend Ricky Gervais is on the promo-trail for the new David Brent movie (which we're super excited about) and on Wednesday he stopped by on 'Late Night With Seth Meyers' to chat and show off his acting skills.

While recording a few promotional shots for the show, Ricky put his acting skills to the test when Seth gave him improvised prompts for each one - and they all turned out to be absolutely hilarious.

This is all getting us very excited for when 'David Brent: Life On The Road' lands this summer.

The hotly-anticipated big screen adventure catches up with David 12 years after the conclusion of ‘The Office’, and finds him now working as a travelling salesman with Lavichem, a cleaning and ladies’ personal hygiene products company.

However, he hasn’t given up on his dream of rock stardom and is about to embark on a self-financed UK tour with his band, ‘Foregone Conclusion’.

Assembling a group of session musicians who are just in it for the money, along with talented rapper Dom (Ben Bailey Smith), in an attempt to gain street cred, David cashes in his pensions and takes unpaid leave in a bid to turn his dream into reality. 

Those hoping to see Martin Freeman reprise the role of Tim Canterbury in the film will be disappointed to hear that the actor will not appear alongside his former co-star.

He previously revealed that he hadn’t been asked to be part of the film, telling The Sun: “I think it’s right that I’ve not been asked. I’m not a big fan of reunions. I don’t think they’re ever as good as the first one.
