Back in March 2011 there was a project code-named "Rush" which caused a lot of speculation because the info seamed GTA-esque.

Link

What stood out to me was:

Kevin De Silva:
18 - 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.

Harut Vartanyan:
42-52 years old - Armenian car dealer, moneylender, would be Fagin and would be bully. Heavily connected to the underworld, but irritates people so much no one likes him.

Nervous Jerry:
48 - paranoiac living in the sticks, near Simon, completely paranoid, and terrified of Simon.

These characters are all described in the GI article with different (probably beta) names and ages:

Kevin = Jimmy

Harut = Armenian car dealer (Franklin's boss)

Nervous Jerry = Trevor's conspiracy friend (I'm guessing Trevor used to be Simon)

Some other characters like Mitch Hayes come to mind with the mention of the FIB giving the protags missions.
What do you think?

Also, there was a thing about switching protagonist with the back button, but everyone refused to believe it. Can't remember if it was the RUSH leak or a more recent one.

It was a more recent one but I think Andy from GI said it was fake.

I'm hoping that's not true, 'cause if I'm remembering it correctly, that " leak " also included a major spoiler

Mitch Hayes could be the FIB witness protection guy connected to Michael.

I think Rockstar renamed the characters after leaks.

Trevor's friend, the 40something paranoid guy is also in the casting, which is a dead giveaway.

Definitely interesting - good spot!

If true then it would seem clear that "Rush" was indeed simply the GTAV codename. Now to debunk "Agent" biggrin.gif

Tae Wong 39 – somewhat incompetent Chinese mobster, loves doing ecstasy, going to raves.

I'm guessing it's this guy.

The "Jerry" one mentions a character called Simon, which isn't there. I guess Jerry is Trevor's friend. And Trevor used to be either Clyde or Simon?

Trevor is Simon since he lives in the sticks and Jerry seems to be scared of him, judging what we now know about trevor it makes perfect sense that he would intimidate Jerry.

This stands out too:

One of the descriptions of Trevor friend in the magazine:
Ron is Trevor's best buddy, as much as Trevor can have a buddy. A paranoid conspiracy theorist who lives next to Trevor in a neighboring trailer, and he's completely terrified that he's got to spend time with Trevor.

Ron is Trevor's friend, who he lives right next to in their trailer park, and he's completely terrified and paranoid that he's got to spend time with Trevor.

Too bad they changed Jerry's name. I'd just hope it would be the same Jerry who got the diamonds in GTA IV.

Trevor is Simon.... that gets to the same point, and used the same wordage as GI's part on trevor and his freind.

I didn't see you had created a topic before creating my own. I made pretty much the same observations but as blakeney said Simon is definitely Trevor.

Here are my other thoughts posted in my own topic:

Franklin's psuedenom does not appear anywhere in the casting call which leads me to believe that his close friends were hired through a different casting call. Although the Game Informer preview pretty much confirms the legitimacy of the casting call (by the similarity of the characters it mentions and those in the casting call) it only mentions a hand full of supporting characters leaving most of the characters roles ambiguous, however it can be assumed that Mrs. Bell, Chad and Mrs. Avery are Michael's neighbours but how they will factor into his story is unclear. Clyde will likely be connected to Trevor in some way as will some of the other hippy types and junkies mentioned. The FIB are mentioned a few times in the article but no specifics are given so it's unclear how Mitch, Miguel and Calvin will fit into the story.

That could be anyone, maybe the owner of a car needing repossessed. Repo side missions would be the sh*t, I love car chases.

Apologies for bumping this old topic but it seems to be the only one on the subject. There's now no doubt that this casting call was legit and I think it's really interesting that we now know the in game identities of almost all of the characters. Here's a list of all of the known characters:

 

Mitch Hayes (Possibly Steve Haines):
38 - Annoying, wise cracking, highly successful FBI agent. In great shape. Does triathlons, drinks low cal beer, but still has a sense of humor.

Clyde (called Floyd in game):
23 - Moronic, almost inbred and creepy white trash hillbilly. Very naïve but in a creepy 'it's only incest sort of way'

Brother Adam (likely Fabien LaRouche in game) :
Welsh monk / cult leader / yoga teacher - 50, very lithe, very into exploring your personal tension through gripping massage. Needs Welsh accent.

Eddie:
47 - Weed evangelist, guy who started smoking at 30, and is now a leading proponent of marijuana's fantastic properties. White, awkward.

Ira Bernstein (likely Lacey Jonas's publicist):
56 - publicist for an actress known as America's newest sweetheart who just so happens to love animals, orphans, drugs and sex. He's always trying to hide her latest indiscretion.

Kevin De Silva (Called Jimmy in game):
18 - Albert's (Micheal'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.

Harut Vartanyan (Franklin's Boss, Called Simeon Yetarian in game):
42-52 years old - Armenian car dealer, moneylender, would be Fagin and would be bully. Heavily connected to the underworld, but irritates people so much no one likes him.

Nervous Jerry (Called Ron in game):
48 - paranoiac living in the sticks, near Simon, completely paranoid, and terrified of Simon (Trevor).

Calvin North (also possibly Steve Haines):
55 - clapped out FBI agent who now mostly works offering advice on TV shows - whose only claim to fame turns out to be entirely false - but a decent guy in other ways. Badly dressed. Divorced. Putting on weight.

Jerry Cole (called Lester in game):
53 - disabled IT expert and criminal information vendor.

Tae Wong (called Tao in game):
39 - somewhat incompetent Chinese mobster, loves doing ecstasy, going to raves.

Taes Translator:
45 - VERY STRAIGHT LACED Chinese translator, terrified of his boss's dad. Male, awkward. Needs to speak Chinese.

 

Although we still don't know about one third of the characters so there's still a few suprises yet to be uncovered which is good.

I suspect the rockstar used code names for the characters knowing the the information would be going out in to the public domain. Once the cast members were chosen they would be given there real names and scripts once they had signed on the dotted line and sworn to secrecy.
