The funnyman previously recruited the Razorlight and We Are Scientists percussionist to play the drums onstage in London as Gervais brought his cringe-worthy character from hit comedy series The Office to life in a pair of shows in 2013, when he performed with his fake band Foregone Conclusion.

Now Burrows has been tapped to reprise his role as the group's drummer for Gervais' new film, titled David Brent: Life On The Road. The project, set 12 years after The Office, follows travelling salesman Brent as he embarks on a self-financed U.K. tour with his band.

Gervais also wrote the screenplay, from which he is directing. Filming began in England on Tuesday (17Nov15), ahead of an August (16) release.

Burrows has also contributed original songs he created with Gervais to the soundtrack.
