British comedian Ricky Gervais has snubbed three big Hollywood films
because he refuses to be cast as the token Englishman.
The Golden Globe winner and creator of the popular sitcom The Office
turned down numerous blockbusters - including Pirates Of The Caribbean: THE
CURSE OF THE BLACK PEARL - declaring that he would prefer to be a top star in
Britain than a
semi-known actor in America
The 42-year-old adds, "Why play fifth fiddle opposite Brad Pitt when I
could be playing lead fiddle back home?"
