Ricky

Ricky Gervais (b. 1961) is an actor and comedian who is probably best known for creating and starring in the original British version of The Office. He filmed two segments for Sesame Street’s 40th season: he sings celebrity lullaby to Elmo at bedtime about the letter "N" (First: Episode 4201) and presented "stumble" as the Word of the Day with Grover. He also briefly appears in "Set Your Piggies Free".

On November 5, 2009, Elmo appeared as a special guest with Gervais during a show at Carnegie Hall to sing "New York, New York."[1] Elmo later visited Gervais' office on a trip to London in 2010, where he also met with Warwick Davis in a viral video.

The actor was set to make a cameo in The Muppets, as he confirmed on his blog, "You may have heard I'm doing a cameo in the new Muppet movie. Should be a laugh. I'm in L.A. anyway for the Globes, so... convenient. Hope my mate Elmo is around that day." Despite that his scenes were cut from the final film, Gervais later confirmed in December 2012 that he would be starring as one of the human leads, Dominic Badguy, in the film's sequel Muppets Most Wanted.

Gervais spoke to Empire magazine about his favorite Muppet: "Robin is my favourite. I absolutely love him. Muppet Christmas Carol is one of my favourite films — that story is already one of the greatest ever, and the only way you can improve it is with Muppets."[2] Gervais reinforced his love for Robin a promo for the BBC series Life's Too Short.
