Video: Johnny Depp meets Ricky Gervais in Life’s Too Short

See the Hollywood A-lister give Ricky a thorough dressing-down


A dour and mightily miffed Johnny Depp appears in the latest clip of new all-star comedy series Life’s Too Short to emerge online.


In the clip, Warwick Davis introduces a cigar-toting Depp to Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant, before the US actor gives the former David Brent a dressing-down for his controversial performance as host at this year’s Golden Globe Awards.

Life’s Too Short will echo Gervais and Merchant’s last comedy project Extras, and feature a raft of celebrity guests, with Sting, Steve Carell, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Shaun Williamson, Les Dennis and Keith Chegwin also slated to make cameo appearances in the programme. 

The show will debut on BBC2 on Thursday 10 November.
