The primary objective will be to assess progression-free survival (PFS) measured at 16 weeks following initiation of therapy with the combination of Avastin and erlotinib in patients with unresectable hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Progression-free survival is defined as the time from initiation of therapy until documented disease progression or death.
Secondary objectives include: response rate, median and overall survival, toxicity and tolerability, and to ascertain whether there is any correlation of response with prior treatment status and underlying HCC risk factor(s).

Experimental: Bevacizumab + Erlotinib
Bevacizumab 10 mg/kg intravenous every 14 days, repeat cycle every 28 days; Erlotinib 150 mg orally every day continuous dosing.
Drug: Bevacizumab (Avastin)
10 mg/kg IV every 14 days, repeat cycle every 28 days
150 mg orally every day continuous dosing, repeat cycle every 28 days
- Progression-free Survival (PFS) Rate [ Time Frame: Baseline to 16 weeks ]Progression free survival (PFS) at 16 weeks of treatment with the combination of Avastin and erlotinib where participant said to be failure free at 16 weeks if they are alive, and their disease has not progressed. PFS Rate is number of participants with PFS at 16 weeks out of total participants. Progression is defined using Response Evaluation Criteria In Solid Tumors Criteria (RECIST v1.0), at least a 20% increase in the sum of the longest diameter (LD) of target lesions, taking as reference the smallest sum LD recorded since the treatment started or the appearance of one or more new lesions.
