Storyline

Again Andy and Maggie are both extras on the same production, this time it's a period drama starring "hard-man" British actor Ross Kemp, who likes to play up to his tough persona. Another tough-guy actor, Vinnie Jones, is filming something nearby. When Andy brags to his rival, Greg, who's an extra on Jones' set, that Kemp could beat up Jones, the rivalry switches hands from the extras to the actors. Written by two_green_bottles

Ross Kemp
28 December 2016 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

In the second episode we see Andy's useless agent, Darren played by the show's co-creator Stephen Merchant. In five years he has not managed to get an acting part for Andy. We also see another one of Darren's talent, Barry from Eastenders acting as a gopher since he left Eastenders.

In this episode Any is working on a costume drama with former Eastenders hard man Ross Kemp. As always Andy tries to befriend him in order to get some lines and Ross talks about his hard man image and his time with the SAS. He brags about how he could take on Vinnie Jones, the former footballer making a film nearby which leads to a showdown between the two.

We also see Andy having a rivalry with another extra, Greg who always takes the opportunity to put down Andy.

This was lot funnier than the first episode simply because Merchant's agent character works so well and Ross Kemp really sent himself up.
