Michael could have been portrayed by multiple people. But the one that I think should have played him was Liam Neeson. Think about it, he looks like he could play as Michael y'know, and he was outta the game and retired but came back into the game after personal sh*t happened.

 

Who do you think should have played Michael? I'll even add those names to the poll!

Ned Luke is the one person who can be Michael, hell he IS Michael.

 

Rockstar have only hired a AAA Actor in one of their games a few times, the biggest is probably Ray Liotta as Tommy Vercetti.

Ned Luke was excellent IMHO. Deserves to get a major big screen role.

Ned Luke for sure.

 

Liam Neeson's portrayed protag would be much badass like, he would be highly skilled in the martial arts department and have a more threatening personality that would scare Trevor...............................and that's the problem.

 

R* fighting style is crap so it wouldn't work. And there wouldn't be a need for that one badass lone-wolf when you've got a trio.

Ned Luke, for obvious reasons.

 

I was wracking my brain trying to remember where I heard/read Ned Luke and Liam Neeson's names mentioned in the same breath, then I found this:

 

"I just lost all my respect for him, what a shame, starring in anti gun propaganda....should roast together with liam neeson for their hipocrisy" -Pissed off dude who's name I'm too lazy to copy/paste

 

That's from one of the threads here that's been locked because of the politically charged message and the eventual sh*t-fest it became...

It's De Niro for me. The way I see it, De Santa would make a perfect De Niro character, and to some extent surely was planned to resemble De Niro's performances. Films such as 'The Family', 'Analyze This' or 'Heat' must have somewhat inspired the creation of Michael De Santa.

I have never seen this before nor intentionally have the purpose of raising hell.

Why is Queen Latifah not an option?

 

 

Seriously though, if not Ned Luke, definitely De Niro, he'd be perfect.

To be honest I don't like Ned Luke's voice at all. Every time he screams at the cops or after a crash, or every time he walks in his home and says he's home or it was a tough day at the office, I want to mute my tv. I'm not sure who would be the best fit, but there are many options that I'd prefer.

Samuel L. Jackson?

 

And Ned Luke is the only person, seen as the character is him.

god no, probably the only reason i don't hate Trevor is for his voice, Tarantino's voice , tone and attitude gets annoying really fast .

Tarantino as Trevor? Hell no. He'd make a good voice character for a antagonist though. Liotta was 1 of the biggest, but not thee biggest. That goes to Samuel L. Jackson.

Ned Luke was really good, but Bruce Willis would be horrible. He's good sometimes but recently he has the same facial expression throughout any movie, looking and sounding like he really can't be bothered.

 

Robert de Niro. He would be beta Michael though, older, almost dead looking.

If James Gandolfini (R.I.P) was still alive he would have been perfect.

 

Ned Luke is still pretty good.

I second Gandolfini and De Niro. But I loved Ned Luke as Michael.

Speaking of James Gandolfini, the references to The Sopranos were obvious. Big house, the kitchen looks almost like Tony Soprano's in the show, a bit** of a wife, and two spoiled brat kids. Amanda was like Carmella, Jimmy was like AJ and Tracey was like Meadow (not exactly but in a way)

 

I know the whole "mafia" thing is overused these days in some video games but I would have loved seeing Michael as more of a guy in the mob rather than a retired bank robber. The story would have been different and Franklin and Trevor wouldn't have been in the game.

 

In my opinion, I like the single protagonist focus. That's just my two cents.

Joe Pesci.. LOL that would be hilarious!

I don't get it, what's so funny? You think I'm a clown, I'm here to amuse you? I'm here to fu**in' amuse you? :D

You mean not Samuel Jackson as Tenpenny?

 

 

OT: I think Danny Devito as Michael would be fitting.

Became a huge Ned fan after his stellar performance on the game. He is an actor of some considerable talents.

Chris Penn as Pulaski was awesome too.

OT:

Ned IS Michael, hands down.

When I saw Gandolfini's name, I thought then why not Tom Sizemore instead... or even Michael Madsen?
