Grand Theft Auto V voice actors being recruited? Yet more details in Take-Two's activity spell development of Grand Theft Auto V.
Several weeks ago it emerged that Take-Two had registered several domain names that were suspected to be used as parody websites in a new Grand Theft Auto title. The domains were CashForDeadDreams.com, SixFigureTemps.com, StopPayingYourMortgage.net, HammersteinFaust.com and LifeInvader.com.

HammersteinFaust is thought to be a parody of Goldman Sachs and LifeInvader of Facebook.

Now Rockstar Games' parent company Take-Two Interactive is holding auditions for actors to voice several video game characters. The five characters it is looking to fill positions for have a shroud of controversy around them that leans heavily toward GTA characters. They include...

  • "A liberal young male who believes in a conspiracy made by Republicans to undermine America."
  • "A young female obsessed with sex parties, always dreaming of being a Hollywood celebrity."
  • "A white creepy man who thinks that technology is a poison against the wilderness."
  • "A man-boy love activist who just got released from an Indonesian prison."
  • "A young, fast-talking boy fighting for the right of young boys to drink alcohol and have sex."

  • GTA V? What do you think?

    These opinions are not meant to start a stupid fanboy fight or any kind of fight for that matter.

    Bully goes to university they could have a lot of fun with that idea just image it would be a R18+ game for sure if they did it the way they wanted it. but GTA takes 5 years to make every one so i guess that is their main project atm

    when was the last time you walked up to a car at a red light open the door drag em out and drive off then pull around the corner and start doing drive bys out the window then drive fast enough to loose the cops but go through the front windscreen lol

    I agree with your concept but GTA if you look at the development for it have been testing versions one after the other it takes millions to make these kind of games so they can not have a perfect product off the bat. With each GTA that has been made with the market research from the community they are working up the idea of the best they can do.

    I don't think you appreciate the development of the game as much as i do but there has been several maps and designs made for GTA so i don't see why your complaining about liberty city sooo much from the vast changes that have been made.

    I think u should do more research before adding fire to the flame lol :)

    You are talking of GTA3, which got taken off the shelves and censored? I reserved a copy too!

    Its a lot easier being righteous than right.
