So it turns out apart from just giant robots fighting giant sea monsters, Stringer Bell from The Wire and Jax from Sons of Anarchy, Guillermo Del Toro’s Pacific Rim will also feature GlaDOS of Portal fame. Not only will actress Ellen McLain be voicing an AI in the film, but the same filter and effects are to be applied, making her GlaDOS in all but name.
Apparently del Toro had to call Valve chief Gabe Newell himself to secure Ellen McLain’s participation, with some help from his daughter. “I’m a big fan of Valve,” Guillermo del Toro said in an Escapist interview. “Portal and Left 4 Dead have been instrumental family experiences at my house.”
