4NI.co.uk reports that both Liam Neeson and Helena Bonham Carter have signed on to join the ever-growing cameo cast of Warwick Davis's new comedy, Life's Too Short, from Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant. For those unfamiliar, Gervais has described the sitcom as follows (from a recent Entertainment Weekly interview):
"It’s a single camera sitcom following the trials and tribulations of ‘Warwick Davis, showbiz dwarf. Warwick is playing a twisted version of himself. He’s quite conceited and arrogant and manipulative. And he runs a [small person] talent agency, which he does in real life."
