As we all know, Albert De Silva is in GTA V voiced by Ned Luke. Now IMDB confirms Niko Bellic is in GTA V too voiced by the same actor as GTA IV, Michael Hollick!
This is great news if you ask me! I wonder if he will be a playable character?
Not really....he was a bland and boring main character. He has nothing on CJ, Tommy and hell, even mute Claude. I found Roman was more interesting then him and thats saying something.
CJ was not that good neither. Tommy was the best.
While I agree he was no better than either CJ or Tommy,he is still a great character.In my opinion,the best protagonist in the GTA IV trilogy was Luis Lopez.
Yeah.. so a character that actually talks and interacts with things in the story is more boring than a mute one right? smh
WHAT?? I loved Niko. I liked him the first time I layed eyes on him in the Debut trailer. I loved his accent, his dreams that didn't come true, his past that was haunting him, the way he dealt with it ... Sure, Tommy Vercetti was still more awesome, but hands down, he was the most awesome psychopath that R* has ever created. Edit: I think Niko had the deepest personality yet for a GTA main character.
I think Niko Bellic was the best. I also wonder if we get to play as him at some time.
Niko was awesome dont know where you coming from buddy..Niko the most developed character of them all.
I love Niko as well, he needs to go out with a bang, literally. I'd also settle for torture.
NO! JUST NO! if yes, then another boring GTA confirmed! :-(
You can debunk this rumor as Micheal Hollick said that he was screwed over by R* by getting minnimum wage for his work and the game made millions - he said that he will be not working for R* agin unless the uop his pay.
Didn't Ray Liotta say the same? He got shafted cos he didn't realise how big Vice City was gonna be. Must be quite annoying when you're the main character in a GTA game and don't get paid fairly. On the other hand, these actors are loaded anyway!
Maybe they did offer him more.
I agree with sugreev2001.. Luis Lopez was on par with CJ to me. His story and character was put really well. Hope to see more of him.
great news or not, the name has been removed. See here: http://n4g.com/news/888648/...
Hurr durr IMDB confirms Niko Bellic is a voice actor hurr durr. If it ain't confirmed by R* then it isn't confirmed at all. lol @ trusting a freely editable site like IMDB. Idiots.
I hope you get to kill him in V. His accent was so fake it was annoying. He is the worst GTA character.
I agree with you i hope you do get to kill him.
That would be great, i'm fu..ing tired of black gangsta and italian mafia stereotypes.
Judging by the Edit button right next to the cast list, I'm guessing any moron with some spare time can edit the list. Plus, why would Rockstar want to bring back the voice of Niko when Rockstar and Hollick had a huge disagreement over what he was paid?
Funny, the same is being said about Ray Liotta (Tommy Vercetti).
Am I the only one who didn't like Niko? Luis and the guy from Lost and Damned were much more interesting IMO. But, when it all comes down to it, all 3 of them can get shelved if Tommy or Carl could make an appearance.
agreed. i'm wanting tommy vercetti.
Luis was a boring character archetype in my opinion. His character portrayal was fun and interesting, mostly because of Tony Prince, who I thought really stole the show. I do agree that I loved Johnny from Lost and Damned...that story arc was spot-on amazing and it seemed like the ending was a bit rushed. I definitely want to play more of their "fighting out of the hole" scenario which seemed to just keep getting worse and worse.
after complaining about the paycheck he got for his role in IV. Anyway, I hope Niko isn't in this new installment too much; dude was far too downcast and angst-ridden for the GTA universe.
IMDB cant ever confirm stuff. While I'd like him in GTAV, IMDB is mostly ran by users, so anybody could put that up, a staff member thinks its true, and then it gets put up. There's been a few things that went up on IMDB and turned out to be fake.
I could probably sign in and edit the imdb page if anyone wants this rumour debunking, or perhaps spicing up... Nathan Drakes in GTA V according to imdb. But in all seriousness I wouldn't mind him making an appearance, I'd rather have a new/different lead though.
Nice!, niko is back!
I can see why a lot of people hate what this site tries to pass off as "news" lately. This is IMDB, the Wikipedia of movies, for crying out loud. Anyone can edit this crap.
Tommy > Niko
My sixth sense says that GTA V will be like Fast V where most of the Characters from prev. entries make an appear !! Anyway, It dosn't matter. Its ROCKSTAR! and its GTA V, Sam & Dan Houser! Close your eyes and get lost in Los Sentos. CHEERS :)
seriously looking forward to this game since when.........
i don't think it's true. maybe a guest appearance.if u have played the dlc for gta 4 as well, you will notice all 3 lead characters appeared in all the 3 storyline. so something like this is possible
i like niko bellic but tommy is best!
YES, if this true, nico will say, "perhaps SAN ANDREAS things will be different and will be better than Ever"
I want Brucie back
first comment that makes sense to me (H) hahaha
Brucie was the man.
Niko and the events of GTAIV and Episodes from Liberty City will probably be referenced a few times in the game. I doubt he'll make a full appearance in the game due to what happened between Michael Hollick and Rockstar. But then again, Hollick could be easily replaced.
It would be cool if they all ended up in the same city and I could play any one I want.
You do realise that ANYONE can go in and add new cast members?
"You think am a joke ha?" XD
There was a chap on the trailer that looked like an older version of Niko (the chap with the cardboard sign) so maybe he has a small part somewhere
I think the guy we see with the cardboard sign is the guy that Niko was looking for, remember? When they bring him on a van and you have the choice to kill him? If my memory doesn't fail me, I think he goes running around like crazy if you let him live.
Just checked, the name was Darko Brevic
Hear we go again ...... as rockstar ( star-maker-game -Machine ) begins. Tossing small herring to the waiting seals , I hate myself but I shall probably be swimming with the rest .
I really don't want him back.
Bring back John Martson !!
I didn't like gta4 because of the main character niko that guy sucks bring some one like cj some gansta shit not gay shit like gta4
I can't imagine this would be fake, but it doesn't confirm anything about his playability. Rockstar has absolutely been exploring more with incorporating characters crossing niche groups. I see Niko more as a cameo on his current where-abouts. Niko was great In my opinion. He was real. It made GTA4 incredibly relatable.
:( Hope he is not a main character.
I wish I could play as Phil Cassidy.
Anyone can update IMDB, the listing is also showing 80's page three model Samantha Fox as Nico's Mom. I'd take IMDB listing at this stage with a truck of salt.
Listing for both Sam Fox and Michael Hollick removed. Move along please, nothing to see here.
I remember they had said that the person doing Niko Bellic's voice on GTA IV was mad because he didnt get paid enough after all that money Rockstar mad off of him. I wonder if he would come back.
Niko in GTA IV was not that bad but if i could still choose it would be Vercetti over Niko But if that's not my decision i honestly dont care.... GO ROCKSTAR!!!!!!!! GTA 5
god i fucken hate niko bellic with a passion he better not be the main character. that would be FUCKED UP!!!
He's not otherwise his annoying voice would have been in the trailer.
an IMDb cast list is confirmation of absolutely nothing.
i remember seeing cloud on san andreas they will probably do something like that
If he were to make an appearance, I would hope it is small, like a cameo.
Good. Hopefully I can shoot him in the face with a double barrel shot gun.
Something about CJ.... He was such a nice guy as well.
This is amazing news.. though all of the CJ and Tommy whores will troll this. Niko was by far the one that was more connected to the story, had feelings, and was the biggest badass of them all so far.
Wow stop mentioning IMDB confirms you morons, anyone can edit IMDB ffs, I can put Justin Bieber as a voice actor on it right now.
Come on bring cj back r*
If he does appear, it will probably just be for a flashback or something, but they have to include his credit regardless.
IMDB confirms a lot of things that don't end up to be true.
