Internet sleuthing all but confirms Albert De Silva as a lead character in GTA V...

Well done, the internet – you've done a Columbo yet again. Not happy with an imdb profile that lists actor, Ned Luke as the voice of GTA V main character called Albert De Silva, various additional sources have unearthed numerous tweets, a demo reel, and previous rumours to all but confirm De Silva as a new protagonist for Rockstar's flagship series.

The trail starts at Ned Luke's own imdb profile, which lists the GTA V credit for Albert De Silva. His likeness to a character that turns up numerous times in Rockstar's debut trailer for the game is uncanny – a point that's further corroborated by this demo reel of Luke's, which also exhibits a familiar voice to the one on GTA V's teaser trailer.

Fan site, iGTAV has added fuel to the fire to pulling together various tweets from people claiming to know Ned Luke who openly confirm his role in the game (his alleged cousin's tweets make for particularly interesting reading). It appears that many of these are archived tweets, pulled from around about the time GTA V's debut trailer was released.

And that's not all. Those of you who followed the GTA V rumour mill prior to its official announcement may recall a couple of casting call listings from publisher Take-Two Interactive. One of these in particular listed a character called Kevin De Silva who was described as:

“Albert’'s fat, FPS playing gamer son. Smokes a lot of weed, has anxiety issues and a card for a bad back, very soft, very opinionated. Into making racist comments while playing online.”

Ned Luke may be relatively unknown as an actor, but this is very much in keeping with Rockstar's casting style for the GTA series. The developer will often cast voice-actors who have a striking resemblance to the character (or vice-versa) and has tended to use small-name actors for lead roles. Where well known actors have been used for GTA games in the past (e.g. Samuel L. Jackson and Chris Penn in GTA: San Andreas), they've tended to play secondary roles.

Breadcrumb trails don't come much more convincing than this - until Rockstar says otherwise, we've got Ned Luke down as Albert De Silva.

Perhaps, on reflection, the Sims thing is kind of funny. There's definitely something in the colour scheme.

Id like it based in glasgow... you couldnt drive much because of the potholes but theres plenty of prostitutes to mame, smack heads to run over and everyones a dodgy gangster type with trackies tucked into their socks... GTA GLASGOW...SMACKHEAD CITY!

id love to see an english GTA only there has only ever been 1 GTA london and that was initially an addon come later standalone game, every other GTA has been american based around liberty city (new york) and sanfrancisco (bad spelling and probably wrong location) i think a revisit to sanandreas would be cool seams as GTA4 was a revisit to GTA3 with the obvious updates based on real world location data.

I personally wouldnt mind gta being based in England as long as the map is big  like san andreas but I do hope that its based in modern times because I dont think I could stand another 80s soundtrack
