It has been confirmed that “The Office” and “Extras” star Ricky Gervais will star in Grand Theft Auto: IV as part of Liberty City’s stand-up comedy club. In an interview with Shortlist magazine, the comedian said:
“It’s a first – which always interests me. It was shot in New York, my favourite place in the world, and I got to wear a tight lycra suit as part of the digital process. No, hold on, that wasn’t so good. Unfortunately they captured the whole horror, except I look slightly tougher. It’s seriously a big deal, though. Games have outsold Hollywood for the past few years so it’s nice to be a small part of that.”
Gervais also mentionned that players will not just find him in the Comedy Club, but elsewhere in Liberty City too! Being a huge fan of Ricky Gervais myself, I can’t wait to see his appearence in what is almost guaranteed to be the game of the year!
