Ricky Gervais to cameo in GTA IV for Sony PS3 and Xbox 360
One of the most anticipated games of the year has to be GTA IV, and will be a huge hit once it is released. The game has been written about to death now and we all assume we know all there is to know about the game however; there is one little gem that we did not know and that is Ricky Gervais is to make a cameo in the game.
The comedian will play himself in the game as he is a stand up act performing in the comedy club in Liberty City. Going into this comedy club might just be a welcome break while you hang out and have a rest, and you will also be able to watch Gervais as he performs some new material that he has written especially for Grand Theft Auto 4.
"It's a first - which always interests me," he said. "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," he says.
"Unfortunately they captured the whole horror, except I look slightly tougher. It is 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."
Ricky isn't the only superstar to appear in the new Liberty City epic. Fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld also makes his video game debut but you can put down those twitching baseball bats. Unfortunately, Karl will only be there in voice as DJ Karl on K109, the disco station.
