Portal 2 trailer: Stephen Merchant voices Wheatley

UK comedian provides vocals for quirky assistant orb in Portal sequel

Here's a new gameplay video introducing UK comedian Stephen Merchant as the vocal provider for Wheatley - one of the quirky characters swirling in the cauldron of genius that will be Portal 2.

Wheatley's dry humour and casual wit sort of reminds us of Ricky Gervais, so it'll come as no surprise that Stephen Merchant co-wrote The Office with Gervais, along with being the co-host of the Ricky Gervais Show. So they're like the same person. Only Gervais is fatter.

Or rotund, as he's otherwise called (see GTAIV's stand-up comedy).
