The Internet Movie Database have added a couple of cast members to their GTA4 listing recently. One of them being the famous Lazlow, hilarious radio DJ.

It's a bit early to be listing the cast, and we aren't sure if this is 100% accurate, but IMDB are a reputable source. Not to mention the fact it's highly likely he'll return due to his popularity.
Hopefully Laz will respond with an official answer to this.

Stay tuned for further updates!

Thanks to Spaz The Great and mvi for discovering this.

It's like saying "does water come out of taps? " .

Of course Rockstar will want him to work on the radio shows and other content for GTA IV and Vice City Stories. He and Dan Houser writes superb content.

Well it doesn't in Africa.

I just wanted to know if he will play a bigger on screen role in the game. His reply to my email wasn't what I was hoping for, but then again he's probably pissed off with all the mail he gets.
I can't be bothered to email again anyway hehe.

Mm... dunno about that one. But atleast it isn't like the UK where it constantly rains all the time, yet there's a water shortage. He signed an NDA with R*, so don't expect anything. This made me think. I wonder if that "episodic content" will include radio stations..... Probably not, because it takes some time and money.

So let's all just ride a horse backwards and don't look back (random LCFR on LCS quote :P ).

Cool effin' news, though. Lazlow is the best DJ.

I absolutely detest that website. They constantly steal news from other games websites and fan sites. It wouldn't be so bad if they actually gave credit, doesn't even have to link back, just a mention would be nice. But no, the uncurteous wankers just rewrite it in their own words. Plagiarism is illegal, and being an actual publisher they should know better.
They set a very bad example indeed, and their reputation isn't that good as it is.

The way some of these websites work is if the writer writes an article that gets linkage from other websites, they get some sort of commision. So they do everything they can to make it look like they (or rather just that person) created the story.

I wouldn't be surprised if that guy has a list of GTA fan sites bookmarked.

EDIT: News flies around fast...

Can we safely say "plagarism" when it WE found it in a PUBLIC website that a lot of people visit daily?

No, we can't. But it's just pretty obvious where they got it from. I doubt they randomly visit the IMDB daily.

Yeah, especially just the GTA4 page? Seems unlikely they would. Fairly certain they've got it from fansites.

Is Lazlow his real name? If it is then his surname is not revealed anywhere in the game or instruction manual. I just found it weird that lazlow has the same voice from 1986 (vice city) to 2001 (gta3). I have been thinking for ages that if GTA 4 was in the seventies, then Lazlow won't be in it because he is too young. My guess is that he will feature in GTA 4 that will be set in present day. A little off topic...sorry guys!

I liked Lazlow when he made fun of Toni Cipriani's Ma! My sides were splitting for hours!
