THE OFFICE star Ricky Gervais caused an ongoing disturbance on the set of hit show ALIAS - because his constant jokes kept the cast and crew in stitches.

The British actor, who was a surprise multiple winner at this year's (04) Golden Globe Awards, filmed a guest spot as a blackmarket bomb-maker peddling his wares to terrorists on the spy drama. But while his role was supposed to be serious, he ended up raising bundles of laughs during his stint.

Alias star JENNIFER GARNER says, "He's so spooky! He's the most fun we have had in ages."

The episode aired in America last night (12MAR04).
