Why we love the online rants of the ''Extras'' star

Fed up with Kanye’s rants and Rosie’s haikus? Head to Ricky Gervais’ official blog, where the Extras star is dishing out video clips, sound bites, and gut-busting missives from the production of his upcoming directorial debut, This Side of the Truth. Along with plenty of his trademark deadpan wit, readers get a behind-the-scenes glimpse of Gervais’ unique directorial style, which includes tormenting his assistant (”Jake is still alive after the wasabe incident”) and attacking cast members Jason Bateman, Rob Lowe, and Tina Fey with an arsenal of Nerf weapons.
