Valve has just confirmed to CVG that The Office actor and co-writer Stephen Merchant will star in Portal 2.
Merchant - who also penned Extras and Cemetary Junction with long-term collaborator Ricky Gervais - has lent his vocal talents to 'buddy sphere' Wheatley, who will join you for at least part of your battle against a resurrected GLaDOS.
When we spoke to Valve at E3 - where Wheatley was first unveiled - they told us that the English voice behind the character was "just some guy from our office".
Our office. The Office.
You can check out our introduction to Wheatley in the below video, or read all about in in our gameplay preview here.
