!!Shaun Williamson (Barry from Eastenders)''Series/EastEnders'')



Shaun Williamson plays himself as one of Darren's clients. He used to play Barry Evans on the British soap opera EastEnders, but left to pursue a multi-million pound contract elsewhere and failed. Darren Lamb doesn't use his real name, but instead calls him "Barry off EastEnders" or just "Barry" and occasionally "Barr".

Added DiffLines:

* InsultToRocks: Despite having an awful sense of humour and virtually destroying Andy's vision for ''When the Whistle Blows'', even he apparently doesn't think that Lenny Henry is funny.

* NegativeContinuity: In the first series finale, she seems to re-evaluate her life, rids her apartment of soft toys and adopts a more mature look and personality. The second series completely undoes all of this, and has her fully reverted to her usual personality without any explanation.

to:

* NegativeContinuity: Handwaved. In the first series finale, she seems to re-evaluate her life, rids her apartment of soft toys and adopts a more mature look and personality. The second series completely undoes all of this, and has her fully reverted to her usual personality without any explanation.following Andy calling her out on her attitude toward things when she nearly ruins his chance of getting a BBC sitcom; realising she was only trying to help him, Andy recruits Patrick Stewart to apologise on his behalf, and the relationship between the two returns to normal.

* BreakTheHaughty
* CompensatingForSomething: Heavily implied for his final gag. The only big romantic scores he can brag about are fictional ones from the films he acted in.
-->'''Stiller:''' It still counts!!!!........It still counts....It does...
* InferioritySuperiorityComplex: Bullies his staff mercilessly, but has his ego broken down ridiculously easily by Andy.




to:

* VillainousBreakdown: Corners himself into one after Andy insults him, bragging indignantly until eventually he just walks off sheepishly, realising he's humiliated himself in front of his entire crew.

* JerkassHasAPoint
* StraightGay

to:

* JerkassHasAPoint
{{Jerkass}}: He tells Andy rather flatly and harshly that, screw his creative vision, they're going for the lowest common denominator...
** JerkassHasAPoint: ...but seeing how Andy waited until literally minutes before filming the pilot of ''When the Whistle Blows'' to make his complaint, he's pretty much correct to point out how it's really too late for a ReTool.
* StraightGay
ShoutOut: He shares his name with one of the co-creators of ''Series/TheInbetweeners''.
* StraightGay: Something he keeps to himself until after Andy makes a remark about how over-sensitive gay people can be.



* CampGay

to:

* CampGay
CampGay: Andy finds his stereotypically over-the-top mannerisms to be annoying, which lands him in hot water when Maggie repeats this out loud to Damon.
* ShoutOut: He shares his name with the other co-creator of ''Series/TheInbetweeners''.




to:

->'''Played By:''' AsHimself


Added DiffLines:

!!Dean Gaffney
->'''Played By:''' AsHimself

* ButtMonkey: He's an even more pathetic, less successful version of Shaun Williamson. Yes, let that sink in.
* TrueCompanions: With Darren and Shaun in their new job at the Carphone Warehouse, to the extent that Stephen Merchant briefly considered writing a spin-off series featuring the trio.

* BreakTheCutie
* CannotTellALie
* CloudCuckooLander

to:

* BreakTheCutie
BreakTheCutie: There are signs of this starting to take hold throughout the second series, but it really comes to a head in the Christmas Special, thanks to Andy shutting her out of his life, and her own career really falling apart.
* CannotTellALie
CannotTellALie: Goes ''way'' beyond this, and has to blurt out absolutely anything that crosses her mind, no matter how offensive it might be.
* CloudCuckooLanderCloudCuckooLander: Of the AdultChild variety, which Andy calls her out on during the first series finale.
* DespairEventHorizon: Clive Owen's atrocious treatment of her on a film set during the Christmas Special drive her to this. The director tells her that she can either put up with it, or be fired and blacklisted from ever working as an extra again. She chooses the latter, and officially gives up her dream of becoming an actress.



* NegativeContinuity: In the first series finale, she seems to re-evaluate her life, rids her apartment of soft toys and adopts a more mature look and personality. The second series completely undoes all of this, and has her fully reverted to her usual personality without any explanation.



* SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan

to:

* SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan
SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan: To the point where late in the second series she has to resort to dating ''Darren''. Their date goes surprisingly well, until Darren's antics when dealing with a toilet emergency drive her away.




to:

* MythologyGag: In the Christmas Special, Tre Cooper says that he's never heard of Darren before. In fact, prior to that episode Darren's full name had never been spoken on-screen, and he was only ever credited as "Agent."




to:

* PutOnABus: A possibly unintended implication of the Christmas Special is that he never made it past the first series (and possibly not even the first episode) of ''When the Whistle Blows'', since the character doesn't appear and isn't referenced. Considering his actor's behind-the-scenes behaviour, it wouldn't be surprising if he said the wrong thing and got fired.


Added DiffLines:


!!Creator/CliveOwen
->'''Played By:''' AsHimself

* {{Jerkass}}: A strong contender for the biggest Jerkass in the entire series, as his behaviour toward Maggie is enough to finally call it quits on her acting career.
* SmallNameBigEgo: Not that he's some obscure small-time actor by any means, but he's ''way'' too full of himself.

!!Lionel Blair

* MoneyDearBoy: Admits that this is about the only thing which keeps him going in life.[[invoked]]
* OnlySaneMan: He's the only other ''Celebrity Series/BigBrother'' housemate that Andy feels even deserves the title of "celebrity," let alone has any respect for.

* DirtyOldMan
* NiceGuy

to:

* DirtyOldMan
DirtyOldMan: He's trying to his his own self-penned movie made, which can basically be described as a Franchise/JamesBond movie if Bond had the power to spontaneously make people's clothes fall off.
* NiceGuy
NiceGuy: Despite his eccentricities, he's probably the celebrity who Andy has the most positive encounter with, and helps get the BBC to make ''When the Whistle Blows''.



* CasanovaWannabe

to:

* CasanovaWannabe
CasanovaWannabe: Tries chatting up just about every woman on the set, which comes back to bite him big-style when he makes moves on Warwick Davis's wife...
* KarmaHoudini: ...but fortunately for Daniel, Andy unwittingly provides the mother of all distractions by accidentally knocking Warwick out.



* {{Hypocrite}}: Despite being a vegetarian, he off-handedly mentions that, "[[Gwyneth's GwynethPaltrow]] making drumsticks"

!!Sir Creator/IanMcKellen

to:

!!Sir Creator/IanMcKellen!!Creator/StephenFry



* CaptainObvious: UpToEleven. Ian would have you know that acting involves pretending to be someone else. Also, you have to learn your lines because carrying scripts around would ruin the illusion.
* CoolOldGuy: Well, he's Sir Creator/IanMcKellen.
* NiceGuy: Despite his CaptainObvious tendencies, he's a pretty genial fellow.
* StraightGay

!!RobertDeNiro

to:

* CaptainObvious: UpToEleven. Ian would have you know WorthyOpponent: One of his comedy shows easily defeats ''When The Whistle Blows'' in the [=BAFTAs=], and it's obvious that acting involves pretending to be someone else. Also, you have to learn your lines because carrying scripts around would ruin the illusion.
* CoolOldGuy: Well, he's Sir Creator/IanMcKellen.
* NiceGuy:
deep down, Andy admires Stephen's brand of comedy far more than he does his own show. Despite his CaptainObvious tendencies, he's a pretty genial fellow.
* StraightGay

!!RobertDeNiro
this, Andy still has to defend the show to Stephen, if only to keep up appearances.

!!Richard Briers



* TheCameo: His role is ''tiny'', and simply involves being inordinately amused by a pen (with a naked lady on it).
* TheQuietOne: He has little-to-no dialogue.
* TheStoic

!!Robert Lindsay

to:

* TheCameo: His role PrecisionFStrike: While Richard is ''tiny'', giving a dignified, heartfelt speech about a recently-deceased producer, Darren gets out a box of Ray Stokes dolls and simply involves being inordinately amused by inadvertently causes one of them to repeat Ray's catchphrase endlessly. Richard takes this about as well as you'd expect, destroys the doll and openly calls it "tacky shit," getting a pen (with a naked lady on it).
* TheQuietOne: He has little-to-no dialogue.
* TheStoic

!!Robert Lindsay
round of applause from the BAFTA attendees.

!!Ronnie Corbett



* ItsAllAboutMe: He's an extreme narcissist.
* {{Jerkass}}: Tells a terminally ill boy to fuck off.

!!Creator/JonathanRoss

to:

* ItsAllAboutMe: He's an extreme narcissist.
* {{Jerkass}}: Tells a terminally ill boy
KarmaHoudini: Thanks to fuck off.

!!Creator/JonathanRoss
being in the presence of Ronnie and a bag of cocaine for just the wrong few seconds, Andy (and technically Darren, though it'd be less of a problem for him even if he were a competent agent) ends up with a lifetime ban from the BAFTA awards, made permanently ineligible for BAFTA consideration, and threatened with being shopped to the police if he ever tries to protest his ban. Ronnie gets off much lighter in comparison.
* ReassignedToAntarctica: A variation. While he initially gets handed the same blanket BAFTA ban as Andy, he's able to negotiate it down to only being allowed to attend the Welsh [=BAFTAs=] for a few years.
