Ricky Gervais is considering a cameo role in the American version of his hit comedy show The Office, after a second series was commissioned.

The funnyman, who starred as misguided boss David Brent in the British original, declined a role in the US adaptation when it was first launched.

But he is having second thoughts now the show has been given a second chance - despite mixed reviews.

Gervais says, "At first I didn't want to get mixed up in it, but I'm changing my mind."
