Kumail Nanjiani, star of HBO's Silicon Valley, has a role in the upcoming space epic Mass Effect Andromeda. In this teaser video from Bioware he finds out just who he'll be playing.

"He's sort of a weaselly guy," says Nanjiani. I think he means well but he also likes power. He's excited but also a little bit in over his head but doesn't want anyone to know."

We don't get a look at the character or a name beyond the video's title 'Space Frog', and the character is described as sort of a salamander, so he might be playing a Salarian. They're a race of chatty, warm-blooded amphibians. We'll find out when the game launches on March 21.
