Gervais says hes been in awe of The Simpsons for over ten years, and hes still in shock that he got to write and guest star in an episode airing on FOX March 26.
He admits, When I first got into comedy, my ambition was to get a joke on The Simpsons.
Gervais obviously loves the show, but says he cant see it hopping across the pond for a UK version because, You dont mess with perfection.
The episode written by Gervais features Marge moving in with his character Charlie after Homer signs them up for a Trading Spouses-type show.
Asked if hes happy with the way hes drawn in the episode, Gervais deadpans, No, Im having it withDRAWN.
