Grand Theft Auto 5 inadvertently confirmed on Twitter?
Posted 21 March 2011 - 06:51 PM
Interesting story making the rounds today as Gilbert Gottfried, so-called "funnyman" and "actor", apparently tweeted this: "just found out I'm voicing the lead in grand theft auto 5! also I hate japan lol."
Rather tellingly, nobody thought to screencap the tweet, and it doesn't appear in Google's cache of his Twitter feed. Based on Gottfried's previous tweets making fun of the earthquake/tsunami in Japan, it's possible he never actually said this and it's just a publicity stunt or random attempt at comedy.
I actually had to IMDb him just to find out who he was, nothing noteworthy at all there. He certainly doesn't seem like the sort of person who'd play the lead in a videogame like GTA, a minor character is much more likely, his annoying voice (hear his real voice at 1:15) would actually be well suited to a character used for comedic relief.
Regardless of how much truth lies in this phantom tweet, if any, I'm not sure we really need "confirmation" that GTA5 exists - it's safe to assume it does. Various guesstimates on when we'll have an official announcement are flying around, but as of yet the game does not officialy exist, we'll just have to continue being patient for now.

Eastern Europeans eh?
No screenshots or history of the tweet does make the story seem sketchy. Print Screen is usually the first button you hit when you come across such things.

It better f*ckin' exist.
Anyway, I hope this is real... only in the sense that it confirms GTA 5.
...and that it doesn't take place in France. I hate France.

I really hope he isn't voicing the protagonist in GTA 5... In fact, if he voices ANYONE in GTA 5, I hope we get to kill the guy.
I kill anybody who appears outside a cutscene so it doesn't matter ^^
R.I.P. Roman, Jaycub, Brucie etc...

Uh huhhhh. Due to your poor driving/aiming skills.
If crushing them against a wall and grenading them to death is due to lack of skill then yeah I suck real bad ^^

However, I did advise speculation on music or voice actors, James Pedeaston being a key radio personality for example, if they hire someone new for him, as we suspect, the same voice from GTA SA, Why not use the same actor? I can't see that going well. I'm rather miffed, the Eskimo tried to pull wool over players and fans eyes, we don't enjoy false leads, I am pretty sure I speak for everyone on that!
