Extras Preprares Its Extra Special Finale

If you're a fan of Ricky Gervais and his Emmy-winning series Extras, then you might want to mark your calendars: The Extra Special Series Finale will premiere Dec. 16 on HBO, wrapping up the saga of Andy Millman and his low-level actor friends with 80 more minutes of wackiness.

Gervais and his co-writer Stephen Merchant certainly seem to love the movies-as-finales device; they did a similar thing to end the BBC version of The Office several years back. So far, everyone's keeping mum on the specifics of the Extras movie, saying only that Andy (Gervais) is still desperate for respect and "is about to take drastic measures that will turn his life upside down" — which could pretty much describe every episode of Extras ever.

But so often, Extras is really about its guest stars (David Bowie, anyone?), and on that front, the movie seems promising. Clive Owen will be showing up, along with Gordon Ramsay and George Michael. Hopefully simultaneously. I mean, really, can you even imagine a circumstance that would get those three interacting in a room together? The mind boggles.

If you've never seen Extras, or you'd just like to be "havin' a laugh" right now, you can check out a couple of my favorite clips from the series when you

Hey Fab_Kitty, sorry about that — things went a little crazy last night with one of our databases. We're not really sure how it happened, so would you be able to bookmark your movie again? Sorry for the hassle!

This is extremely odd: Last night I tried to bookmark a buzzworthy movie and instead my bookmark has your Extra article verbatim. Seeing as how this wasn''t even posted then, how did that happen?! LOL. Anyways, is there a way for us to edit our buzzworthy bookmarks, Buzz? Thanks in advance for your help.
