American funnyman Will Ferrell is desperate to work on hit BBC television show EXTRAS because he is a huge fan of its creator and star, Ricky Gervais. The BLADES OF GLORY star admits he hasn't been asked to do the show - but is dying to be approached by his British counterpart. Ferrell, 39, says, "I love Ricky. He is amazing. "He hasn't approached me to do Extras - at least not that I know of. "I would do it if he asked."
