Actor Jude Law has disappointed British comic Ricky Gervais by pulling out of his forthcoming star-studded television comedy EXTRAS.

The Alfie heart-throb, who was set to play himself in an episode of the long-awaited The Office follow-up, has blamed "work commitments" for the turn-around.

The GOLDEN GLOBE-winning comedian will play ANDY MILLMAN in the show, a bit-part actor desperate for fame and fortune who always misses out on the lead roles.
