Gervais opened up to Morgan, revealing:

    "I'm confronting the elephant in the room. They hired me, like I'm going to go out there and not talk about the issues in their industry. Don't forget, I've got to be an outsider there. I mustn't come out there as everyone's mate and schmooze, that's nauseating."

Gervais continued to keep it real, saying:

    "I've got to come out there and I've got to roast them. I'm not judging them. I'm not judging them for what they did. They hired me for a job, and if they didn't want me, they shouldn't have hired me. I don't think I did anything wrong. I honestly… you know those were, like, jibes at these people and I'm sure they've got a sense of humor."

Ricky Gervais will appear on CNN's Piers Morgan Tonight Thursday, 9pm EST.
