Stephen Merchant Not Eager to Reprise Portal 2 Experience

Stephen Merchant says his voice work for Portal 2 is one of the most tiring things he's ever done, in talking to FMV Magazine about his role as Wheatley in Valve' platformer sequel. "It seemed like a fun thing to do, but in actual fact it was one of the most tiring things Iíve ever done,Ē the comedian, who has obviously never worked in construction, told the magazine. "I was standing in a recording booth shouting down imaginary corridors and falling out of make-believe ceilings. For hours at a time. And I really wanted to do a good job so I was shouting and screaming and leaping about. The thought of doing it again seems so daunting Iím not sure I can face it." Thanks CVG.

27. This isn't a new ploy Aug 31, 2011, 04:10 Grumpy Sod
 
He said the same thing months ago for another interview, it's not a recent thing, so I doubt it's a ploy for money.

Didn't bother reading this one, but the previous interview said he was very physical about doing the voice. Rather than just sitting and trying to get 'panicked while jumping off a rail' tone right, he would throw himself around, much like method acting but for voicing.

So yeah, it probably was far more physically and mentally tiring than a lot of our desk jobs. Harder? Probably not, but he never said that.
