Meet Andy Millman, Actor.
Never forgets his lines because he never gets any.
Andy (Ricky Gervais) is a desperate man. He's been an actor for five years but thanks to his useless agent (Stephen Merchant), he's never done any acting.
Instead he's just a lowly film extra, walking around in the background while the stars do their lines.
Andy's only friend in the world is Maggie (Ashley Jenson), a fellow extra and a hopeless romantic. While Maggie pursues the man of her dreams, Andy decides he'll do whatever it takes to get himself noticed.
Each episode takes place in a different filmset and features cameos from guest stars including Ben Stiller, Samuel L Jackson, Ross Kemp, Kate Winslet, Les Dennis and Patrick Stewart.
