A casting call currently open for publisher Take-Two is asking for somebody to play the role of James Pedeaston in a new game. James Pedeaston being a character from Grand Theft Auto IV. And a paedophile.
The call, which was first published yesterday, is seeking voice actors to play five characters in what is most likely (considering Take-Two is a game publisher) an upcoming video game. Four of them certainly sound like Grand Theft Auto characters, including Samantha ("A young female obsessed with sex parties") and Anthony (a boy "fighting for the right of young boys to drink alcohol and have sex").
The fifth is labelled as James Pedeaston (pictured), which was the name of one of the radio show hosts from Grand Theft Auto IV. In that game, he was wanted for child molestation in Malaysia, and was under investigation by the FBI. The listing for this project says that he is a "man-boy love activist who just got released from an Indonesian prison".
While this isn't proof it's the same character, if it wasn't, that would be one hell of a coincidence.
The next game in the Grand Theft Auto series is yet to be officially revealed, but the more stuff like this gets out, the closer we'll be getting to that inevitable date.
