The comic who starred in The 40 Year Old Virgin and played Ricky Gervais’ role in the US version of The Office has announced that he would love to make an American version of Only Fools and Horses.

“That is my dream role,” he told Empire. “The British do sitcoms better than anybody else in the world. I think with the right scriptwriters and cast we could do Only Fools and Horses justice.?

While Carrell would like the role of wheeler-dealer Del, he thinks Ricky Gervais would be perfect for the part The Nag’s Head landlord Mike.

“If anybody wants to help me do a remake I’d love it – with Ricky as Mike the barman.?

He would also wants Paul Rudd as Del’s brother Rodney, Vince Vaughn as Boyce and Ben Stiller to play Grandad.

Tongue in cheek maybe? Still it does sound good…
