Ricky Gervais hosting Golden GlobesRicky Gervais has a lot going on. How he keeps up with everything is a mystery to us, but we hope he never stops. The funny every-guy is "flattered and excited" about his new gig hosting the Golden Globes, but don't look for any big production numbers. He plans to skip the song-and-dance routines and stick with what works for him -- being himself, putting the focus on the winners, and popping in here and there to keep things rolling along.

We caught up with him this week, and along with the Globes, he talked about his new animated HBO series 'The Ricky Gervais Show,' the novelty of being heard by Inuit fishermen, and why he plans to keep working Steve Carell "until he collapses like an old horse on a farm."
