Ricky Gervais is in GTA IV... and in lycra


Eagles may soar high, but weasels don't get sucked into jet engines, my friends. Ricky Gervais is set to star in the fourth iteration of the monumentally successful Grand Theft Auto series, GTA IV.

Comedy chubster Gervais appears onstage in Liberty City's comedy club, he told Shortlist magazine. And he hinted that he appears somewhere else, too. Is there a paper mill in a new town a few miles outside of Liberty City?

"It's a first - which always interests me," said Gervais.

"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.

"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."
