The Office funnyman will emcee the prestigious awards show January 17 on NBC, and says that if the gig sucks, hell just have a few drinks.
Since the show lasts three hours, Gervais foresees himself knocking back a few between quips.
He explains, My tie will come off and Ill get drunker and drunker, but at least the first hour of the show should be enjoyable.
Gervais has no plans to perform a shtick or dance routine as host, since hes admittedly better in small doses.
Hell also avoid cheesy jokes and go straight for jabs.
He wants to gently rip into his fellow actors on stage, specifically anyone whos younger, thinner, richer, and more attractive than him.
This means Office actor Rainn Wilson is safe, and Steve Carell is on the cusp.
