The multi-talented Ricky Gervais will be writing and briefly starring in a sitcom which will centre around a dwarf played by Davis.
The BBC have commissioned Gervais and Stephen Merchant to write a pilot for a sitcom for BBC 2 focusing on the day to day life of a dwarf.
'Life's too Short' will also contain cameo appearances by Gervais and Merchant who by all accounts have had a right old giggle working on the pilot. Gervais said "We're having so much fun working with Warwick" and "Pound for pound he is one of the funniest men I know".
Warwick, who has appeared in the Harry Potter films and numerous other box office hits, has proved to be one of Britain's most recognisable actors and sprung to fame as the Ewok called Wicket who helped Princess Leia in Return Of The Jedi.
I personally look forward to watching the sitcom and hope that we will see more of Warwick in the future as he has proved to be an actor whose talent goes way beyond the stereotype and I congratulate the BBC for commissioning the pilot.
