That said, his newest gig shouldn t prove all that challenging.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the actor will play an internet troll named i-R0k in Steven Spielberg s upcoming Ready Player One, which tells the story of a video game console creator who uses a virtual contest to determine who will inherit his billion-dollar fortune.

The story is an adaptation of a sci-fi novel of the same name by Ernest Cline, and the film is set to begin filming by the end of June.

Perhaps no actor in Hollywood is better suited to this role than the man who brought Silicon Valley s insufferable entrepreneur Erlich Bachman to life, and — though we re already cringing — we can t wait to see him needling the rest of the cast.

For the uninitiated, Ready Player One has spent years in development, and is a labor of love for Spielberg, who is himself an ardent gamer.

Though less publicized than his film work, he has assisted in the development of several video games, including Boom Blox and the Medal of Honor series.
