Ricky Gervais to Host Golden Globes
Posted 11.17.11 by Mandy
Any big-name Hollywood player with a fragile ego should be prepared: Ricky Gervais is returning to host the Golden Globes. The acerbic comedian has hosted twice before and pulled no punches when it came to making jokes about A-list celebrities.
Immediately after last year's Globes, Gervais said he would not return as host. In March, Gervais said he could be persuaded to return, but only if Hollywood train-wreck Charlie Sheen would co-host. Gervais' idea was that he would run the show while Sheen would sit in a chair, smoke, and "just say what's on his incredible mind" throughout the show. Unfortunately, Gervais backed down from his co-host ultimatum, because he apparently is hosting solo.
For his sake, we hope that Gervais has learned his lesson, and won't tell any Tim Allen jokes seeing as Johnny Depp will be on watch.
