Christmas Will Be Extras Special This Year....

Extrasgervaismerchant

For those of us mourning the loss of Extras after a mere two seasons, all is not lost.  Britannia is a-buzz with news of an Extras Christmas Special.  The line-up is chocca with celebs, all obviously chomping at the bit to lampoon themselves alongside Gervais and Merchant. 

The teaser for the episode includes a clip where Clive Owen eyes up Maggie as his 'prostitute' in a costume drama and declares "I wouldn't pay for it."  George Michael is found cruising for c*ck at Hampstead Heath, and Barry Off Eastenders shares a tender moment with Darren Lamb (Steve Merchant).  It's like the celebrities never stop!

(teaser after the jump..)

You'll catch Gordon Ramsay in there, along with a variety of British D-listers most of our American readers will never have heard of.  One person who won't be appearing is Prince, despite Steve Merchant's dream of adding him to the cast:

"I'm such a Prince fan. I don't know what he's doing as we speak - is he lying in some sort of purple hammock just strumming on a guitar, being fed cherries? I have no concept."

"I would love that idea and me being six foot seven and Prince being, whatever he is, four foot one, would be comic enough."

So so true.  I wonder what Prince is doing right now, in fact.

Oh how I love that show! And those two! They need to make more shows pronto!

You know, even the picture of the two of them is enough to crack me up.

...and Prince probably is doing that right now, if he isn't going door to door to share the Word (Jehovah's Witness and all).
