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.
