2 : DVD Extra (Interview With The Cast)
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.
2 : DVD Extra (Interview with the Cast)
When he crashes his agent's lunch meeting at a posh restaurant, he is bluntly told that he will never realise his dreams of having fame, fortune, prestige and respect. Crushed, Andy reluctantly agrees to lower his expectations for the sake of remaining modestly famous and successful and is cast in Celebrity Big Brother. While staying in the Celebrity Big Brother house, Andy openly reflects upon the price of fame and grows increasingly disenchanted with the culture of celebrity worship that has manifested itself throughout Western society.
His despondency culminates in an emotional breakdown during a conversation with the other housemates. He tearfully turns to the camera and apologises to Maggie, who is watching the broadcast from her flat, for ignoring her and not heeding her advice to be grateful for the things he has managed to achieve. He voluntarily departs the house, ending his tenure on the show. Moved by the unexpected outpouring of emotion, a group of journalists eagerly awaits Andy's appearance at a press conference. Andy's agent returns and tells him that his emotional turn has instantly skyrocketed Andy's profile and that a number of A-list stars are requesting to meet him. As his agent prepares to introduce him to the throng of waiting press, Andy quietly slips out the back door of the studio where Maggie is waiting for him in her car. They drive off together with Andy seemingly turning his back on show business and accepting a life of anonymity.
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, and Tom Cruise. 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".
Other tidbits: The drag racing Asian sportscasters were inspired by a friend Savage had in high school who was "cursed" with the voice of Howard Cosell. "It was just a thing he was born with. He'd come up [in Cosell voice], 'Savage, you're looking really good today. It's an audacious display of handsomeness.' I was like, 'Wow, you really talk like that?' 'I certainly do.' Also, I loved Howard Cosell," Savage says, "and Woody Allen always made fun of Howard Cosell and Woody Allen was one of my early inspirations." Savage's friend wasn't Asian, but he loved actor Yuji Okumoto when he met him. "I said, 'I'm gonna make you the Howard Cosell guy,' and I did a rewrite for him. And he ended up in The Karate Kid, Part II."

No, not yet. I like to think my acting talents and myathleticism had a good part in being cast, but I do think making Rob (Reiner)laugh helped. He was looking for someone with a sense of humor. Indirectly,Bill Cosby is why I got the part.
One hopes this book does well. "As You Wish" isdedicated to Elwes' daughter, Dominique, who has yet tosee the film. The book is a slender 250 pages with a light-hearted narrativethat sometimes flows around grey color blocks of other people's commentary onthe same event or on each other. Nothing in it will ruin the good-naturedwarmth of the tale and a few of them, such as Elwes'injury, have already been told in the DVD extras, but the book offers moredetails and corrections. For instance, in the DVD commentary, Reiner mentionsan ankle injury which was really Elwes' broken toe.
