Speaking to free London magazine Shortlist, he said: “It's a first - which always interests me. It was shot in New York, my favourite place in the world, and I got to wear a tight lycra suit as part of the digital process. No, hold on, that wasn't so good.”
"Unfortunately they captured the whole horror, except I look slightly tougher. It's seriously a big deal, though. Games have outsold Hollywood for the past few years so it's nice to be a small part of that."
He also hinted that he appears elsewhere in the game – but Gervais fans will have to wait until the title is released on Xbox 360 and PS3 on April 29th to track him down.
