Extras: Ricky Gervais May Call It Quits

14 September 2006 2:08 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Though the fun and innovative British show Extras is quite popular and has won several awards, it looks like series creators Stephen Merchant and Ricky Gervais may be calling it quits. The series just wrapped its second season and sadly it looks unlikely we'll see a third.

The British series centers around the crazy world of show business and an aspiring actor named Andy Millman (played by Ricky Gervais). In the series, Millman struggles for work but keeps losing out on roles to famous stars and humorous results. Stars that have guested in the past include Patrick Stewart (X-Men), Kate Winslet (Neverland), Samuel L. Jackson (Snakes on a Plane) and Ben Stiller (upcoming Night at the Museum). Some have speculated that the series may be parodying Ricky's own rise to fame with the hit British series The Office (which was adapted as a hit NBC series starring Steve Carrell)

Stewart Still Wanted Back on the Enterprise

5 January 2006 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Hollywood bosses are still trying to entice Star Trek actor Patrick Stewart to return to the Starship Enterprise - but he fears he will be too old by the time they come up with the goods. The 65-year-old star, who played Captain Jean-Luc Picard in the television series and later movies, insists the offers would be tempting, if only he were a little younger. He says, "Weighty people in Hollywood have come up with a very interesting proposition. But they told me it was still two, three or four years down the road, by which time I would only be able to sit in the captain's chair and not have the energy to get out of it!" »
