No. And that's the weirdest question I've ever been asked. So well done, because I've been asked some weird shit

Yes he may do. But he tends to think everything is pointless, so I'm sure he'd think Reddit was also .

Definitely. I was thrilled at the response that game got. I would happily do more video games, but maybe I am typecast as Wheatley now?

I met Liam on a talk show and he made the mistake of saying he was a fan of our work, so I pounced on him and made him promise to be in the show. We just hit on the idea that he seems so serious in movies like Taken and Schindler's List that it would be fun to play with that image and make him decide he wanted to do stand up comedy.

I wanted to make a sitcom called Merchant's Navy, in which I am the captain of an entire navy and I sail around and have adventures. Hasn't happened yet
