Hey I was listening to the radio today and heard a really great interview with the guy who does Nico Bellic's voice. The guy is actually a really cool guy and pretty funny too. Should check it out. it is the 5th one down.

Wasn't the same interview where he commented that Rockstar neglected his free copy of the game? Is he assuming they were to give him a free copy?!? Burt Reynolds never got a free Trans Am after filming Smokey and the Bandit, even though he was promised one. A complete fu*kin rub on the man! He claimed he bought one anyway!


I think it's awesome hearing about his work on the game, basically my favorite character.

His name is M I C H A E L , by the way, to clear that up. monocle.gif lol.gif

I got 2 free copies of Saints Row for my band being in it so I assume people should get a free game for being a VOICE in it lol

Yeah, but he likely just slipped up rather then knowing it right or wrong. I think if you're not used to typing or talking in English you do things like spell "Breakes" wrong. We had some amusement over that error in one of my earlier threads, and on top of all that, Rockstar used BREAKS in the game!! I couldn't believe it myself, but on the sign of an auto repair shop they mispelled "Brakes"! It's in Bohan IIRC, near to the safe/save house.

I can't recall the exact one but I'll check for it again.

Well, here are some pictures of Hollick: http://images.google...m=1&sa=N&tab=wi

and here's his MySpace (can't believe I actually spent more than a few seconds on that damned site):
http://profile.myspa...endID=156544306

I think he's a pretty cool-looking guy; that chiseled face and those horn-rimmed glasses really give him some appeal. It seems R* drew some inspiration from his face for Niko's model. Hollick's song, Out of the Blue, is also nice.

Oh, and OP, just what the f*ck are you referring to by "5th one down"? confused.gif

I searched Youtube for sh*ts and giggles but 5 videos down was "Sunshine, Solariums (Sunbeds), and Vitamin D. interview with Dr Michael Holick" (and yes, I did spell his last name right, "Hollick". And there were some interviews by video game websites but none that were 5 videos down. So, please, clear up wtf you're talking about by "5th one down".

I've seen video of Hollick interviewed at some convention by a female presenter some time back. It was very good. He did his Niko bit at the end at her request. He was also in Law & Order a while back too.

He's awesome, wish I R* filmed the behind the scenes on making GTA 4 so you could see the actors and all that. Games should start having special features like doco's for DVDs.

That would be great promo stuff for their games. I mean, many other companies do that stuff before releasing a game, trying to increase the hype before the actual release. Or they could make a proper documentary and sell it after the game has been released. I bet it would sell well to the fans.

It's weird hearing Niko's voice while seeing the actor's face.

I saw it awhile ago, where he slips into Niko's accent, effortlessly, it's SO CLASS! Imagine if you knew the guy and you'd just be DO Niko, Dude! You Gotta! You'd want him to say silly expressions and comments all the time. The more I spent with the game, the more I think Niko is at least on-par with Tommy Vercetti.

MICHAEL is always spelled with an "A" first, far as I know. I didn't go to his MySpace yet, but is he on Facebook too, perhaps??

This thread is OLD! haha

Not that wierd, the mouth area is more of the same on Michael as on Niko.

It's just most impressive in that Niko Accent he adopted, that's what's most amazing, his real Acting chops are more about the voice inflections. Niko's animated mannerisms are still very much alive. I went back to Saints Row 2, and while it has improvement, it cannot touch what Rockstar North keep doing, it reinforces my love of GTA
