Johnny Depp has a (scripted) bone to pick with Ricky Gervais in 'Life's Too Short'


The 2011 Golden Globes have receded into memory, but as you may recall, host Ricky Gervais took quite a bit of flak at the time for his roasting of his fellow attendees.

Johnny Depp certainly hasn't forgotten. Or rather, he's willing to act like he hasn't forgotten by doing a cameo in Gervais and Stephen Merchant's new series "Life's Too Short." You can watch the scene up above.

The show is a fake documentary about actor Warwick Davis (the "Harry Potter" movies, "Willow"), and Gervais and Merchant play themselves. In the scene above, Depp joins Davis for a meeting, and he's rather frosty toward Gervais (note his choice of ashtray). Depp's last line is deadpan brilliant.

Like Gervais' previous show "Extras," "Life's Too Short" will feature a bevy of celebrity cameos. Liam Neeson, Helena Bonham Carter, Steve Carell and Sting are among those who will appear. "Life's Too Short" premieres in November on BBC Two and on HBO in 2012.

What do you think of the clip? Will you be watching "Life's Too Short"?
