Roush Review: On HBO, a Clown and a Chameleon

Ricky Gervais

Is Chris Lilley the next Ricky Gervais? Or is he the next Tracey Ullman? Would you settle for both?

In HBO's addictive import Summer Heights High (Sundays at 10:30 pm/ET), a funny/sad Office-style mockumentary depicting a year in the life of an Australian public high school, this wildly talented writer-star loves making you squirm (à la Gervais) while submerging himself inside the skin of characters so diverse (à la Ullman) you can hardly believe it's the same guy.

No child is left behind, or teacher spared, in Lilley's outrageously crass classroom ... read more

Ricky Gervais Adds Fey and Others to This Side of the Truth

Tina Fey by Shawn Ehlers/WireImage.com

Ricky Gervais is assembling a diverse, star-studded cast for his upcoming film, This Side of the Truth — and he just added four more talents to his roster, starting with Tina Fey.Along with the 30 Rock star, Gervais has also tapped Christopher Guest, Jeffrey Tambor and Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman (aka the PC man to Justin Long's Mac) for the flick. They'll be joining a cast that already includes Jennifer Garner and Jonah Hill, among others. The film imagines a world in which lying doesn't exist (seriously). When a dorky "loser" (played by Gervais) invents the concept, his own world, not surprisingly, changes exponentially. What's your take on the lineup? Are you ready for a Gervais-led film? Or wish he would stick to the small screen? — Anna DimondUse our Online Video Guide to get some Extra clips of Ricky Gervais. read more

Extra Extras: The Brilliant HBO Sitcom Returns for Its Series Finale

George Michael, Ricky Gervais and Gerard Kelly, Extras

We're thrilled that Ricky Gervais is resurrecting his bloody genius HBO series Extras for a one-shot finale this week, but we can't help feeling dejected. Soon, Extras will be gone for good. Here's what we'll miss most. (The Extras series finale airs Sunday, Dec. 16, at 9 pm/ET on HBO.) Extras features TV's most delightfully dysfunctional duoThat would be Gervais' serious-actor wannabe Andy Mill­man and his idiotic agent, Darren Lamb (Gervais' col­laborator, Steven Merchant). In creating the duo's mad­dening attempts at commu­nication, Gervais harkened back to comedy's legendary mismatched duo Laurel and Hardy. "They nailed it," Gervais says simply. It showcases TV's sweet­est relationship "People know that she's vulnerable, because she's a bit stupid," Gervais says of Andy's best friend, Maggie (Ugly Betty's Ashley Jensen). Particularly refreshing is the absence of will read more

When Emmy Winners Attack!

OK, first off, how freakin’ hilarious was The Bachelor Monday night? Holy human desperation, I loved it! And Hillary from my hometown made the first cut. Represent, Philly ‘ho!Now that we have that out of the way, let’s talk last week’s Emmys. Yes, the in-the-round stage was a hot circular mess and why so many statues went to TV-movies, I’ll never know. It’s not like any of the good Sci Fi Originals get nominated. Hello, Mansquito? So robbed. But Seacrest didn’t totally suck, the opening Family Guy number was inspired and some of the winners were deserving.So if you’re like me and think you suffered a stroke that made the word Gandolfini sound like “Spader,” or ya can’t get your head around anyone from Torque ever winning anything, you might want to grab the champs on DVD. Turns out that the slights are, in fact, slight.Ugly Betty — Much like Betty’s Guadalajara poncho, you could spot America Ferrera’s Outstandin... read more
