Liam Neeson and Helena Bonham Carter are the latest Hollywood celebs to sign up for Ricky Gervais’ spoof documentary.
Written and directed by Ricky and Stephen Merchant, the seven-part sitcom Life’s Too Short follows the fluctuating fortunes of showbiz dwarf Warwick Davis.
A show source said: “Liam and Helena are both fans of Ricky from his other series and made room in their busy schedules to appear. It has all the makings of a hilarious series now like Extras.”
The series also includes cameos from Johnny Depp, Sting and Steve Carell.
Ricky said: “It’s turned out better than I hoped. It’s a joy because Warwick is fantastic to watch. You have so much sympathy for him and yet you love things going t*** up for his reactions.”
Life’s Too Short will be on BBC2 in October.
