Galavant Sneak Peek – featuring Ricky Gervais as XANAX

In case you missed it, Ricky Gervais (The Office, Extras, Derek) is going to be in one of this week’s episodes of Galavant!

Here’s a sneak peek of Ricky in action as Xanax The Magician– though, according to the character is “actually not LEGALLY allowed” to call himself a magician anymore:

This week’s episodes of Galavant will feature Weird Al Yankovic (UHF, Adventure Time, Drunk History) as a confessional monk  and Sophie McShera (Waterloo Road, Downton Abbey, Cinderella[2015]) as Gwynne in the fifth episode of the season, “Completely Mad… Alena”.

In addition to Ricky Gervais as Xanax, the sixth episode, “Dungeons and Dragon Lady”, will feature Rutger Hauer (Blade Runner, Hobo With A Shotgun, True Blood) as Kingsley, King Richard’s brother.

I am pretty damn excited about the scene, above. Timothy Omundson as King Richard, Vinnie Jones as Gareth, and Darren Evans as Chef already steal the show. More scenes with the three of them, please! My only question is where on earth is Gareth during the scene with Xanax?? I foresee some sneaky adventures with the King and Chef!

My prediction: Sneaky adventures of King & Chef + Ricky Gervais and Toad = a perfect episode.
