Diana Gabaldon’s hit time travel novels “Outlander” may be adding a new star to the show. The hit Starz series is currently filming for Season 2 and the team behind the show is wooing a star… but he has some conditions, though.
Sam Heughan, the main actor of “Outlander” has been tweeting Ricky Gervais of “The Office,” pursuing him to accept the role for “Outlander” Season 2. He has been wooing him like Jaime would do to Claire, offering him stuff such as dogs, snacks and even wigs! Gervais is known for his humour and sarcasm and it looks like he has an issue with the show’s wardrobe.
We'd put you in a tartan wig.
Just bring your own skirt.
We can pick you up from the bus stop Saturday. https://t.co/46nw4fdsWR

He asked Heughan, “Will you make me wear a tartan skirt?” and “What are the hours?” However, Gervais hasn’t confirmed yet whether he’s joining the cast ensemble this season of “Outlander.” But it looks like Heughan really wants him on board! Imagine, wooing a star via Twitter and offering him stuff just for him to say yes? Yes, he is just badly wanted by Heughan and most probably the staff of the hit series.

Meanwhile, Diana Gabaldon has warned fans of “Outlander” that Season 2 will be different compared to her book. On the other hand, show creator Ronald D. Moore was quick to say that Season 2 may be different compared to the book, but it will be exciting and that the changes they have made were approved first by Gabaldon as per Cinemablend.
Gabaldon is really pleased on how “Outlander” Season 2 will be going this time and she assured fans that it will still provide fans the same story as her books.
