Exclusive: Ben Bailey Smith (AKA Doc Brown) on collaborating with Ricky Gervais for David Brent: Life on the Road


Having already spoken to the main man himself, Ricky Gervais, ahead of the release of David Brent: Life on the Road – we then had the pleasure of discussing all things Brent with co-star Ben Bailey Smith, otherwise known under his alias Doc Brown, who plays rapper Dom Johnson in the feature film.

Smith spoke about he first came to be in contact with Gervais, and whether it was surreal starring opposite both an actor and character the comedian had been so influenced by himself. He also explains how challenging it was composing songs and lyrics which are both funny and engaging, while telling us about his aspirations as a dramatic actor.

David Brent: Life on the Road is released on August 19th, and you can read our review here.
