Chris Martin to appear in BBC comedy Extras


Recommended Posts

David Bowie and Coldplay's Chris Martin are set to appear in the second series of Ricky Gervais's 'Extras'.


Ricky has admitted he is "in negotiations" with the rockers to have cameo roles in the hilarious show.


The funnyman has been friends with Bowie since they filmed a sketch together for charity show Comic Relief earlier this year, so he is hoping the legendary singer will agree to send himself up on 'Extras'.


Meanwhile, Ricky approached Chris - who is married to Hollywood actress Gwyneth Paltrow - when they met at this summer's Live 8 concert in London.


If they agree to take part, the musicians will join a long list of A-list stars to poke fun at themselves in the sitcom, which has been nominated for a record five British Comedy Awards.


Hollywood stars Kate Winslet, Ben Stiller and Samuel L Jackson all played distorted versions of themselves in the first series of the show, which follows film extra Andy (Gervais) on his desperate quest to get a speaking part in a movie.
