Get a Sneak Peek of "Extras"

"Extras," the hilarious British series from the geniuses who brought us "The Office," starts its second season Jan. 14 on HBO. But you don't have to wait until then to see it: Yahoo! TV has a a 12-minute clip of the first episode.

In case you missed the first season, here's a primer: Ricky Gervais (David Brent from the BBC version of "The Office") plays Andy, a struggling actor whose aspirations greatly exceed his resume — not to mention his talent. He and cohort Maggie (Ashley Jensen, aka Christina-the-wardrobe-girl from "Ugly Betty") are eking out a living as extras in films headlined by the likes of Kate Winslet and Samuel L. Jackson. The episodes always feature cameos by A-list stars willing to poke fun at Hollywood culture.

The second season, which Gervais has said will be the last, includes guest appearances by Ian McKellen, Coldplay's Chris Martin, and Orlando Bloom. The Yahoo clip has a great scene of Bloom dissing Johnny Depp: "Ooh, look at me, I make art-house movies. Ooh, I've got scissors for hands!"

If you don't have HBO or just can't wait two weeks, several more clips have surfaced on YouTube. To see my favorite,

My favorite scene is from the David Bowie episode, in which Bowie meets Andy at a piano bar and ends up improvising a song calling Andy a sad little fat man who's sold out for a chance at fame. Check it out:
