You can keep your mega bucks movie offers, you can keep your naff little Oscar statuettes and you Liz 2 can keep your tacky New Years Hounours. If you’re a sleb with a moral compass (oxymoron, perhaps) the only three credible jobs you want to add to your C.V. are: starring in either Sesame Street, The Muppets or The Simpsons. Fact!

Ricky Gervais knows the score and has already bagged two out of those three, but today he’s now made it the hatrick. The David Brent look-a-likey will be starring in the upcoming Muppets movie. Other names already lined-up include Steven Segel, Jack Black, Billy Crystal, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Lady Gaga, Zach Galifianakis, Alan Arkin and Emily Blunt.

The film will be directed by Flight of the Conchords camera man James Bobin and will be released in December 2011.
