READ about Piers Morgan's long career in journalism here.
Following his interview with Piers Morgan (airing tonight), we talked to Ricky Gervais in the green room for a quick Q&A. Although he won't be re-starting his Twitter account, he's a fan of the service. "I love the fact that it's an immediate source of information. On the whole, it's quite a good-spirited thing," he said. "It's quite equalizing." (But "you can't rant in 140-characters" he said, so he's not getting on.)
So what did he think of Piers and the interview?
"Really good, not as scary as anyone thinks," he said of the Piers interview. "He was really sweet and respectful, he'd done his research. I can't believe I'm saying this about him."
The full interview with Ricky Gervais airs tonight on CNN 9pmET/PT, and 2000 HK and 2100 CET.
