British comedian Ricky Gervais has landed a cameo role on hit American TV series ALIAS.

Gervais - the writer and star of acclaimed series THE OFFICE - will play a 'juicy, horrible, evil' villain in the spy show which stars Jennifer Garner as AGENT SYDNEY BRISTOW.

The funnyman was recruited by Alias creator Jeffrey Abrams after the American producer became a huge fan of the British version of The Office, which is about to be remade for US television.
