Sylvester Stallone and Emma Thompson have both asked for roles in BBC mockumentary 'Life's Too Short' opposite Warwick Davis
Sylvester Stallone has asked for a role in 'Life's Too Short'.
The Hollywood legend is keen to appear in the BBC mockumentary alongside main star Warwick Davis - who plays a fictionalised version of himself - and Emma Thompson has also expressed an interest in a cameo in the show, but the diminutive star insists their roles would have to "tie in" with his character.
Warwick explained: "I know lots of people have expressed an interest in being in an episode. Sly Stallone wants to be in one. Emma Thompson wants to be in one. There's all sorts of people. But it can't be for the sake of it. It has to tie in with the character of Warwick."
Val Kilmer is to appear in an Easter special of the show on Saturday (30.03.13), and while there are no plans in place for another series, the 43-year-old actor hasn't ruled out the show - which was created and written by Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant - returning for a future run.
He added to Digital Spy: "This special is a bookmark in 'Life's Too Short' and we've put the book down. But the book hasn't gone back in the library.
"Never say never to doing some more. We didn't really have plans after the last one. It's just what you can do when you can fit it in. Ricky and Stephen are just so busy. We've had a real blast making this and it's a show with great heart and it's poignant at times.
"I'd love to do some more. The character has moved on and can continue to do so."
