Extras - The Collection DVD|
Extras is the spiritual successor to The Office created by Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant. Series 1: Ricky plays Andy Millman who having given up his day job to be an actor finds he just can't land the big parts. In fact he rarely gets a speaking role so spends most of his days stuck in a green room with other extras envying the A-list stars with his fellow actor Maggie Jacobs (Ashley Jensen). Each episode Extras has a different setting and cameo appearances from guest artists including: Samuel L Jackson Kate Winslet Ben Stiller Ross Kemp Vinnie Jones and Les Dennis! Series 2: The second series sees Andy (Gervais) experience the highs he has longed for with his newly written sitcom 'When The Whistle Blows'. However while the show achieves high ratings Andy's creative integrity is under threat from the catchphrase-riddled mainstream appeal of it all. The answer; artistic credibility and celebrity friends which leaves poor Maggie out in the cold now working as a background artist on Andy's breakthrough venture. As before a slew of high-profile celebrities pop up for some hilarious cameos including Sir Ian McKellen Robert De Niro and Orlando Bloom amongst others all willing and able to humiliate themselves!from£8.07 | RRP:
