Rumour, speculation and intrigue continues unabated over a possible Grand Theft Auto V.
American actor and ‘comedian’ Gilbert Gottfried has used Twitter to exclaim “just found out I’m voicing the lead in grand theft auto 5”.
If this is true then it confirms rumours that have been circulating for some time as to the possibililty of a sequel to Grand Theft Auto IV already being developed.
The ‘tweet’ in question was spotted by The Noble Eskimo who proceeded to contact Rockstar for comment but, in reply, were sent an image of the 1990 film Problem Child, starring Gilbert Gottfried. However none of this can be verified as the Tweet has apparently vanished so it’s probably a hoax.
[Edit] In addition, the site in question, The Noble Eskimo, is a spoof one. So unless Atari 2600 fragments really were found in burgers, we can safely rule this particular bit of GTA V information out. The original story is left up in the interests of transparency, because IncGamers doesn’t believe in magically erasing its mistakes from history.
Gottfried played the parrot Iago in Disney’s Aladdin and went on to voice the character for Square Enix’s Kingdom Hearts series. He has also appeared in episodes of CSI, Superman and Saturday Night Live. His IMDB listing can be found here.
Leaks have been spotted for the past few weeks, including a listing for ‘Grand Theft Auto V’ on a and a Take-Two casting call for a voice acting project ( ) which displays some very GTA-esque character descriptions.
