Johnny Depp tells Ricky Gervais off (on a TV sitcom)

Perhaps you don’t remember when Ricky Gervais hosted the Golden Globes earlier this year and made fun of a bunch of famous people to their faces. But you know who does? Johnny Depp.

“The Rum Diary” actor pretends to confront the Brit in a hilarious clip for Gervais’s new sitcom with Warwick Davis, “Life’s Too Short.”

In the preview, the two awkwardly meet, and it’s clear Depp is still holding some (completely fictional) bad feelings about “The Tourist” joke Gervais made at the Globes.

“I’m fine, man,” Depp tells him. “Just doing another film that’s going to make loads of money, probably a lot more money than any film you’ve ever made. And you?”

Depp proceeds to amusingly belittle Gervais, telling him that Helena Bonham Carter thinks he’s an idiot.

“I actually got together with a few pals after the awards, and we wrote some jokes about you,” Depp says with great intensity. “I want you to know this, and I want you to carry this with you for the rest of your days: No one makes fun of Tim Allen on my watch and gets away with it.”

“Life’s Too Short” premieres across the pond this November and on HBO in 2012.

This post has been updated to make it clearer that this is indeed a joke.
