(Newser) – Look out, New York: Ricky Gervais is coming. The comedian, whose divisive Golden Globe hosting gig included jokes about masturbation and onstage drinking—“which Jane Fonda didn’t appreciate apparently”—says he already has digs in the Big Apple, where he's moving with his partner of 25 years, Jane Fallon.

Gervais also says he’ll be doing a guest stint on the American version of The Office. Not in his future: marriage or kids. “There are too many children,” he opines, particularly those who are poor or unwanted. “What there is, is too many useless people … who shouldn’t have children.” Should we impose some kind of limit? “Yes, based on stupid fat faces,” he replies. “If there’s a woman in leggings, eating chips with a fag in her mouth, sterilize her.” (Read more Ricky Gervais stories.)
