When I was watching "Gnomeo and Juliet" I noticed the nerdy gnome, Juliet's dad, sounded a lot like Wheately. I had to make sure so I went to Wikipedia, and guess what! Stephen Merchant plays that Juliet's Father! [generic internet laugh representation] I love STEPHEN MERCHANT

Fixed' for you.

I haven't seen Gnomeo and Juliet yet so I don't know if the nerdy gnome you speak of is Juliet's father. that's just what I interpreted from it.

Yup, Smerch has been in a few films / programmes recently. Yet his character never changes! He's awesome. :p

I've been listening to him since his radio days with Gervais. :D

what i mean to say was that Juliet's Father introduces him as her would be love interest....(also I get a vague sense of making fun of nerds every time i see something like that....But eh it's just old archetypes and all, (the nerd does get the girl in real life so...LOL)) (uh i think i'm ranting)

Yes, Stephen Merchant was the voice actor for the nerd "Paris".

Stephen Merchant was also in the Tooth Fairy that recently came out with Dwayne Johnson.

Also, of course, the extra and the British office.

Speaking of Portal 2 voices in other media, I swear I keep hearing J K Simmons on a Geico commercial when I listen to Slacker.

But yes, SM was great in Gnomeo and Juliet. And the Tooth Fairy. Just wish he was used more in G&J because his part was too small really.

I saw Gnomeo and Juliet with a friend once.

It was a film with an amazing, great cast, that it proceeded to do nothing with.

I've not seen that yet, though I'll probably end up taking a look since the Smerch is in it. I've got tickets to see one of his stand-up gigs in September, can't wait! :D
