OCCUPATION: Comedian, scamp
PREVIOUS APPEARANCES ON THE TIME 100: 0
PRO: Gervais' droll award-show appearances he mock-tormented Steve Carrell at the Emmys and got away with a Holocaust joke at the Golden Globes were award-worthy in and of themselves. Perhaps the British would be interested in trading him for Dane Cook?
CON: His first starring-role feature, the underrated Ghost Town, disappeared after only a few weekends.
