WATCH: Ricky Gervais Reveals Tweet-Worthy ‘Life’s Too Short’ News

The 'Life's Too Short' crew: Warwick Davis, Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant

Get your tweets scheduled in HootSuite, folks: Ricky Gervais says that Steve Carell‘s appearance on his new HBO series, Life’s Too Short, is one of “the most excruciating scenes” he and collaborator Stephen Merchant have ever done. They, alongside series star Warwick Davis, have teased Carell’s cameo in this new video, in which the pint-sized Davis does his best impression of a Twitter bird. (What does a Twitter bird do anyway? Well, watch the video to find out.)

While not British himself - he was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri - he once received inordinate hospitality in London for sharing the name of a dead but beloved EastEnders character. His Anglophilia stems from a high school love of Morrissey, whom he calls his "gateway drug" into British culture.
