With Grand Theft Auto: Vice City being set in a fictionalized Miami in the 1980s, the sport is sufficient like a cross between Scarface and Goodfellas already, however Liotta’s stereotypical Italian-sounding mobster vernacular completely ideas it over the sting.
9 Dennis Hopper – Steve Scott
Together with Ray Liotta, Rockstar was clearly on the hunt for actors who’ve starred in traditional films, and probably the most seasoned of all of them is Dennis Hopper.
Being one of many ’60s dangerous boys together with Marlon Brandon and Jack Nicholson, Hopper has performed some wild roles previously, whether or not it’s the Photojournalist in Apocalypse Now or Billy in Simple Rider, however the position of Steve Scott is perhaps the wildest.

8 Frankie Boyle
With Grand Theft Auto IV having its personal comedy retailer, Rockstar wanted a number of the finest comedians on the time to visitor characteristic within the recreation, and a type of options is the Scottish Frankie Boyle.

And it is smart that Rockstar selected Frankie Boyle to be the visitor comic in GTAIV’s comedy membership, as he’s simply as controversial because the video-game collection. Boyle has beforehand made headlines for a lot of of his bits, however he by no means goes too exhausting within the recreation, because it’s extra of a B-sides assortment than his most side-splittingly humorous stuff.

5 David Cross – Zero
Working a toy retailer, although he would have Carl consider he sells 1/tenth scale replicas of actuality, Zero is performed brilliantly by David Cross, the actor/comic most well-known for enjoying Tobias in Arrested Improvement.
As Cross is typecast as considerably of a dork, that’s no completely different together with his position as Zero in San Andreas, because the character is obsessive about toys whereas on the identical time being fully oblivious to the corruption that’s occurring in entrance of him. And Cross’ nasally voice makes it that rather more hilarious.

Gervais’ stand-up set might be discovered on YouTube, and it’s a full 10 minutes of unique jokes that he’s by no means used since. Although it isn’t precisely as controversial as his Golden Globes speeches, it’s nonetheless fairly humorous.
1 Samuel L. Jackson – Officer Frank Tenpenny
San Andreas doesn’t solely have the best map, nevertheless it seemingly has probably the most expertise. Given the vocabulary that Samuel L. Jackson has in his on a regular basis life, it’s virtually as if the actor has a Rockstar worker writing dialogue for him day after day.
