Emmy- and Golden Globe-winning "The Practice" star Camryn Manheim, 40, has reached a seven-figure deal to produce and star in a self-referential feature film about her own experiences as a bit player on movie sets, reports Variety. The project, to be called "The Extra," reportedly focuses on a delusional extra who ruins the life of a movie star. This could lead to some speculation as to which star this is meant to be. Manheim's movie credits include small roles in "The Road to Wellville" with Anthony Hopkins and Matthew Broderick, "Romy and Michelle's High School Reunion" with Mira Sorvino and Lisa Kudrow, "Jeffrey" with Steven Weber and "The Bonfire of the Vanities" with Tom Hanks, Melanie Griffith and Bruce Willis.
