Ricky Gervais has revealed the thought process behind his cameo stand-up role in GTA IV, stating that he chose to pick on fat people in his Liberty City performance because it's a "universal" theme.
"It had to be sort of, like, quite universal, because it's played all around the world. So, no parochial cultural references," Gervais told MTV in an interview.
Voice actor Michael Hollick was paid $100,000 for his fifteen-month stint as Niko Bellic in Grand Theft Auto IV.
Hollick, who was practically a nobody before the game's blockbuster success, has mixed opinions on whether or not he was given a reasonable amount for his role in the biggest entertainment product of all time.
"Obviously I'm incredibly thankful to Rockstar for the opportunity to be in this game when I was just a
Here come the karma police! Infamous anti-videogame attorney Jack Thompson, who was once ordered to get a mental check, has been recommended guilty for 27 of 31 misconduct charges, by Florida judge Dava Tunis.
Among the charges against Thompson are dishonest or fraudulent practices, knowingly making false statements in court and making statements intended only to "embarrass or burden" other parties.

A recently-released trailer for THQ's Saint's Row 2 has been criticised as being "unusually pompous" for its digs at Grand Theft Auto IV.
Industry analyst Mike Hickey commented on the trailer, which makes fun of GTA's in-game social activities like bowling, watching TV and going to a cabaret club.
"The trailer directly attacks Grand Theft Auto IV in game content, an unusually pompous position in our view,
Anyone that's interested in seeing a Grand Theft Auto movie shouldn't hold their breath. It seems that Rockstar can't make a film out of the game due to a legal settlement.
If you've spent some time perusing the bargain bin of Blockbuster, you might know that a film called Grand Theft Auto was made in the seventies by Ron Howard - yes, that Ron Howard.
It was hardly a success, but according to Hollywood Daily it worried
We really don't know where to start with this one. Okay, the bare facts to begin with: The Daily Star has somehow managed to report that a video game based on killer Raoul Moat is being planned.
It's even gone so far as to parade a picture of a mocked up GTA, entitled: Grand Theft Auto Rothbury - named after the rural Northumberland area in which Moat ended his own life on July 10.
The Star attributes the doctored image to several 'games websites', which it said 'showed the cover of Grand Theft Auto Rothbury'. We read a lot of games websites. We have not seen these websites.

Cue jubilant air-punches of delayed vindication for Apple fans, but sad faces for 360 and PS3 owners.
As far as we know so far, anyway...
Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses. Or at least just step away from StarCraft II long enough to gather at the Supreme Court to voice your opinion on videogames and protected speech. A game advocacy group is planning a rally outside the high court on November 2...
Britain's Independent newspaper reports that a new study has proven a link between violent imagery in games and movies, and desensitization of teenage boys to actual violence. The study, which has been widely re-reported in news media and gaming sites, is being positioned as the “smoking gun” that links videogame violence and angry young men, which naturally scares a lot of gamers and makes moral grandstanders happy. The problem is that it actually does nothing of the sort...
