Whether you want to call him Wicket, Willow or The Leprechaun, there’s only one way to say that Warwick Davis is headed to the small screen — although I’m sure you’re going to prove me wrong with terrible jokes in the comments section.
According to Variety, the Star Wars and Harry Potter favorite will headline a new BBC project called Life’s Too Short, a single camera pilot billed as “an observation comedy which follows Warwick’s day-to-day life in a small world where big things happen.”
The Office and Extras co-creators Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant are the insane geniuses behind bringing us a regularly televised dose of Warwick, so you know who to make your thank you cards out to.
“We’re having so much fun working with Warwick,” said Gervais. “Pound for pound he is one of the funniest men I know.”
Nice, Ricky. Real nice.
