Peter Andre has reportedly landed a role in Ricky Gervais' new The Office-based movie Life On The Road.

The 'Mysterious Girl' singer is said to have landed a part playing himself in the new David Brent film, which will follow the hapless office manager as he funds his very own musical tour.

A source told The Mirror: "It's his first part in a film. And while he will be playing himself and it's only a small cameo, it's given him a chance to have a go at acting."

Ricky Gervais, starring as David Brent, films a scene from his upcoming film 'Life on the Road'. In this scene David Brent is trying to sell his album entitled 'Foregone Conclusion' on the streets of Soho.


Life On The Road catches up with Ricky's deluded David Brent post-Office. He's now a travelling salesman who harbours ambitions of rock superstardom… so much so, he decides to use part of his pension to fund a tour which is being filmed by the TV cameras once again.

He said earlier this year: "Just to be clear, I am not making an "Office" movie. I'm doing a documentary film about David Brent trying to be rock star. Just Sayin'."

BBC Films has also said: ""We find out what Brent is doing now and what's happened in the last 15 years since his redundancy from his beloved Wernham Hogg. He's a sales rep now, selling cleaning products up and down the country, but has never really give up on his dream of being a rock star.

"He thinks it'll be like Scorsese filming The Rolling Stones, but it turns out to be a 'where are they now' documentary. He has to take a few weeks off work and cash in a couple of pensions, because the session musicians in the band are costing him more than he's getting in ticket sales. Tragic."

We can't wait!
