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?"
