I was never able to get into Extras like I did Heroes, 24, Dexter or Entourage. The show's dry humor may have flown over my head, but there are others anxiously awaiting the return of the series on HBO this January 14th.
Extras Season 2 Premieres on January 14th
From the creators of The Office, the hilarious smash hit Extras is back for a second season on HBO. Ricky Gervais stars as Andy Millman, a 40-something actor who gave up his day job to pursue movie fame -- only to find he couldn't land any substantial parts. But what happens when a beleaguered "background artist" finally catches his big break? For Andy, who's just broken through with his own TV sitcom, fame means a whole new level of humiliation.
Season Two also features appearances by Orlando Bloom (Kingdom of Heaven, The Lord of the Rings trilogy, The Pirates of the Caribbean films), pop star David Bowie, Daniel Radcliffe (title character for the Harry Potter hits), Coldplay's Chris Martin, Sir Ian McKellen (the X-Men series, The Lord of the Rings trilogy) and flamboyant British radio and TV personality Jonathan Ross.
Feel free to refresh you memory of Extras by watching some clips over at HBO.
