Extras Season 2


Extras is a British sitcom about extras working in television, film, and theatre. The series was co-produced by the BBC and HBO and was written, and directed by Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant, both of whom starred in it. Extras follows the lives of Andy Millman (Gervais), his platonic friend Maggie Jacobs (Ashley Jensen) and Andy's substandard agent and part-time retail employee Darren Lamb (Merchant) as Millman muddles through life as an anonymous "background performer" who eventually finds success as a B-list sitcom star.




Extras Season 2



Fed up with life as an extra who is always being cut out of scenes just as he manages to get his face on camera, Andy shamelessly kisses up to celebrities and producers in an effort to try to get screen time or a line of dialogue. Although often successful in these endeavours, circumstances always arise that prevent Andy from advancing his career. Reasons include celebrities confessing that they have no real power to help, or (more often) Andy inadvertently offending the star which results in his immediate dismissal from the set. In the conclusion of season one, Andy delivers a sitcom script he has written to Patrick Stewart, who, in turn, passes it along to the BBC through his production company. Andy gets a meeting with BBC comedy producers who greenlight his project and agree to allow him to play the starring role in the show.


When the Whistle Blows is the show-within-a-show sitcom created, co-written by and starring Andy Millman. It was first mentioned in episode 1.3, as a script that Millman had written and given to Darren, who neglected to read it (in a recurring joke, he would frequently forget the name of the show, often calling it When the Wind Blows and even confusing it with The Wind in the Willows). The script was turned into a sitcom on BBC One in the first-season finale, after Millman gave the script to Patrick Stewart. Excerpts from the sitcom are featured in the second season, and many of the Extras second season plotlines revolve around Millman's experiences on and around the show.


According to a segment in the extras section of the Series 1 DVD, Jude Law was scheduled to appear in one of the episodes, after meeting Gervais backstage on the Late Show with David Letterman, but had to pull out due to film commitments. This resulted in Gervais and Merchant having to scramble to find a replacement actor at the last minute, with Leonardo DiCaprio being considered and doggedly pursued. A featurette on the first series DVD release, "Finding Leo", consists of late-night video camera footage (shot mostly by Merchant) chronicling Gervais' desperate but ultimately unsuccessful attempts to contact DiCaprio's representatives. Law was ultimately replaced by Patrick Stewart in the series 1 finale, although a poster for the Jude Law film Alfie appeared at the end. Other actors who did not appear in Extras despite initial reports from Gervais that they would appear include Madonna, Brad Pitt,[7] and Tom Cruise.[8] Keith Harris turned down the part eventually given to Keith Chegwin having read the script, telling The Independent "This isn't clever writing, it's pure filth".


Core background extras can expect to work one to 10 days a month through May, getting paid about $175 for 12 hours. The show needs people to play a range of roles from detectives to steel workers to lawyers.


The casting company also is seeking extras. Applicants must be OK working around smoke and attend a costume fitting prior to filming. Women, who must have natural-looking hair colors, will be fit in corsets.


For those super-fans of the sci fi series, we have the greatest news yet: Stranger Things is looking for people to join its season 2 cast as extras. In a casting notice on Backstage today, the show announced that it is seeking males and females from Atlanta, ages 17 and up. The casting call specifically mentions that they are interested in all ethnicities, but that they're looking for men with "longer hair styles" and women who are "willing to cut their bangs."


Avatar Extras was an event hosted by Nicktoons in which episodes of Avatar: The Last Airbender were shown along with a series of pop-up "extras", in the form of on-screen text bubbles, which gave facts and humorous comments. The extras were written by Joshua Hamilton.[1]


Sitcom set in the world of film and TV extras. Background artist Andy Millman has finally got his big break. He's trying to make a classy sitcom that will stand the test of time, but the BBC have different ideas - they're more interested in silly wigs and chasing ratings.


Secondly, all three discs are labeled as having special features, but only discs one and three contain the above extras. The Stargazer and Chateau Picard features are on disc one, and every other special feature is on disc three. There are no special features on disc two, despite what the disc itself says! This is a strange oversight that will likely confuse a few people.


Danny Cody was called upon to pitch the bottom of the ninth with the score still knotted up. Cody finished the Grasshoppers off with back-to-back strikeouts to send the game into extras.


The football and volleyball teams at Norfolk High School are opening their season strong with wins. Plus, Boone Central dominates Norfolk Catholic in season opener and Pierce emerges victorious from last season's semifinal rematch with St. Paul. 041b061a72
