Admittedly svelter these days, Gervais has been rocking the all-black ensemble quite a bit lately, leading us to believe that he’s been sharing a closet — or at least trips to the mall — with Simon Cowell.
He’ll be right at home with all the suits on Sunday, where Gervais tells Ellen DeGeneres that a few targets are already high on his list.
“Well, Charlie Sheen has obviously put his head above the power pit,” says Gervais. “Like last year, Mel Gibson was a gift from the comedy god. So yeah, that’d be two good people out of the audience. Mel Gibson. Charlie Sheen. OJ Simpson.”
We don’t anticipate seeing any of the three at the show, but Gervais wants to stick to easy targets all the same. “I only go for the weak and the feeble,” he says. “I’m not going to have a go at Russel Crowe or Mickey Rourke. Mickey Rooney maybe. Betty White, I’m not scared of her. You’ve gotta to choose your targets wisely.”
