The creator and star of the original British version of "The Office" has signed on to play dolphin Billy Flynn for a season.
"'Family Guy' is my favorite show at the moment. I watch two a night and I'm slightly obsessed," the BBC quoted Gervais as saying.
"When ['Family Guy'] creator Seth McFarlane phoned me out of the blue and said he was a huge fan I was delighted," he added. "It was such a joy working with the team and I really like the way my character looks, too."
