Hugh Laurie, English renaissance man and star of the long-running Fox drama House, is the voice of Newton, the antagonist in LittleBigPlanet 3, Media Molecule revealed today. This news is extra-special because it puts Laurie opposite Stephen Fry, who voices the game's narrator and happens to be Laurie's comedic partner in the classic BBC sketch show A Bit of Fry and Laurie.

"The strange thing is I did not know, until I got here, that he was the narrator," Laurie says in his reveal video. "But it was actually completely delightful to think that he's on the other end of this – well, beginning and end of the game – as the all-wise, all-seeing, all-knowing narrator. Oh my god, how he would love to be described as those things: all-wise, all-knowing and all-seeing. Which he is, of course."

LittleBigPlanet 3 also features the voices of Peter Serafinowicz (Shaun of the Dead), Simon Greenall (Alan Partridge), Nolan North (Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor) and Tara Strong (The Fairly OddParents). A few returning actors and characters are still to be revealed, Media Molecule teases.
