In Season 1, Andy Millman tries to get noticed while working on a movie directed by Ben Stiller, whines about never landing a speaking role and gets a break working alongside Les Dennis.
Andy Millman (Ricky Gervais) is a struggling actor with ambition and a script. Darren Lamb (Stephen Merchant) is Andy's useless agent and Maggie (Ashley Jensen) is his air-headed best friend. After getting his comedy script accepted by the BBC, things are looking up for Andy. However, Andy's dreams of becoming a respected auteur are roundly demolished and Andy must claw back what little self-respect he can. The second season of the award winning Extras is as edgy, uncomfortable, daring and funny as no other comedy. These six episodes feature cameos from Orlando Bloom, David Bowie, Sir Ian McKellan, Daniel Radcliffe, Chris Martin, Robert Lindsay, Robert De Niro and Barry from Eastenders.
