Bob Dylan to interview Ricky Gervais
Granted, this is a TV blog, but I've got to take a moment and thank the media gods for radio and printed matter. This kind of interview - two great artists from different fields meeting - doesn't happen as much as it should on television. In print, there's always BOMB Magazine. The entire premise behind the mag is to have two brilliant folks who may or may not have ever met get together for a sit-down interview.
Gervais and Dylan are a particularly inspired pairing. D.A. Pennebaker's 1967 documentary Don't Look Back shows a Dylan that pioneered a mischievous manipulation of the camera and the marketing of his own image - qualities I wouldn't be surprised to find Gervais admires.
