Gervais is currently starring in the film Ghost Town
Comedian Ricky Gervais has been asked to appear on children's TV show Sesame Street, he has revealed.
Writing on his blog, the 47-year-old said: "I've been asked to do Sesame Street - there are some things you don't turn down."
The star will join the likes of David Beckham, Jessica Alba, Robert De Niro and Alicia Keys who have all made an appearance on the show.
Gervais can currently be seen in cinemas in the film Ghost Town.
The star also revealed on his website that he has asked actors Danny DeVito, Michael Douglas and Al Pacino to appear in his comedy series Extras.
The star told the BBC News website last month that although he had been approached about presenting the Oscars he would be reluctant to do it because of the lack of "freedom" in the role.
