Mel Gibson to Present at Golden Globes

Mel Gibson Golden Globes 2016 Presenter

Christmas just came very late, or very early, for Golden Globes host Ricky Gervais.

Mel Gibson, the subject of one of the comedian’s sharpest-ever Golden Globe barbs, will present at this year’s ceremony.

The awards telecast will air live on NBC on Sunday at 8/7c.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced Gibson’s appearance, as well as that of House alum Olivia Wilde, via its Twitter account Monday.

Gibson, whose problems with alcohol include a well-publicized drunk driving arrest in which he spewed anti-Semitic statements at a police officer, was one of Gervais’ punchlines during his 2010 hosting stint.

“I like a drink as much as the next man,” the comedian said, teeing up an appearance by the Aussie actor/director, “unless the next man is Mel Gibson.”

Per our sister site Deadline, Gibson was in on the joke.
