A private Take-Two casting call is advertising for an actor to portray James Pedeaston - a character from Grand Theft Auto IV and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.

Until now, Take-Two casting calls only a had a theoretical link to the Grand Theft Auto series.

The suggestion is, of course, that the game Take-Two is casting for is Grand Theft Auto V.

Pedeaston, "a man-boy love activist who just got released from an Indonesian prison", is between 40 and 45 years old.

Pedeaston hosted the WCTR radio show that can be heard in GTA: San Andreas. In GTAIV, Pedeaston is arrested by Indonesian police for suspected child molesting.

The other characters being cast alongside Pedeaston are Matthew, Jose, Samatha and Anthony.

Matthew, "a liberal young male who believes in a conspiracy made by republicans to undermine America" is between 18 and 25 years old.

Jose, "a white creepy man who thinks that technology is a poison against the wilderness" is between 30 and 40 years old.

And Anthony, "a young, fast-talking boy fighting for the right of young boys to drink alcohol and have sex" is between 10 and 15 years old.

Evidence for Grand Theft Auto V has been mounting fast. Should Rockstar be preparing an announcement, there will be no better place for it than super-show E3 in June.
