Angela Kinsey wants Ricky Gervais to guest star in an episode of the US version of 'The Office'.
The actress - who plays accounts department worker Angela Martin - thinks it would be fantastic if the creator of the original British series - in which he plays hapless boss David Brent - came to the American paper mill.
She said: "I can't confirm it but we would be out of our minds excited about that. You know, he's been able to stop now and then and it's great for us. We're such big fans of where the show started so I hope so."
If he does appear in the upcoming series it may be the last time Ricky would be able to star with lead actor Steve Carell.
The 'Date Night' star - who plays overbearing boss Michael Scott, who is based on David Brent, in the American interpretation - has revealed he plans to leave the series after its next run.
When quizzed on whether he will return to the role after his contract expires at the end of the current season, he said: "I don't think so. I think that will probably be my last year."
