There have been rumors and scuttlebutt around about a Take-Two title code-named “Rush” being the next Grand Theft Auto. The suspicion began last month with domain names being registered by Take-Two in the same satirical manner that the Grand Theft Auto series is known for – titles like CashForDeadDramers.com and SixFigureTemps.com can only make us wonder.
Now, let’s fast forward about a week after the domains began appearing to find Take-Two hosting casting calls that could be vaguely related to the elusive Grand Theft Auto V. Internet information sleuth Superannuation on Twitter did some search engine magic and found a bit of strange information regarding two of the characters specifically left out of a casting call. He tweeted that he “noticed that call mentions two characters not listed in the call: Simon & Albert de Silva. Could one of those be the main character?” Well, we still have no idea if either of these characters will be our everyday hero for the next Grand Theft Auto game. However, thanks to Eurogamer, we have information that seems a little bit more solid.
You guys remember Pedeaston from the WCTR radio show in San Andreas, and then in Grand Theft Auto IV when he is arrested under the suspicion of child molestation, right? Well, it appears that he’s going to make a return in Grand Theft Auto V as a “man-boy love activist who just got released from an Indonesian prison”, along with the characters Matthew, Jose, Anthony and Samantha detailed in a private casting call from Take-Two.
The casting call describes each of the characters individually beginning with Matthew, “a liberal young male who believes in a conspiracy made by Republicans to undermine America” and is anywhere from 18 to 25. Next is Jose, “a creepy white man who thinks that technology is a poison against the wilderness” and is anywhere from 30 to 40. Samantha, “a young female obsessed with sex parties, always dreaming of being a Hollywood celebrity” and is anywhere from 20 to 25. Finally, Anthony, “a young fast-talking boy fighting for the right of young boys to drink alcohol and have sex” being anywhere from 10 to 15.
The cast of this hypothetical Grand Theft Auto V is looking to be a colorful bunch, and to continue the stream of rumors, we may see these characters in Hollywood.
Thus concludes this edition of “GRAND THEFT AUTO FIVE?!?!?!?!?”
