Ricky Gervais to appear in Grand Theft Auto IV

Ricky Gervais, the writer and star of The Office and Extras, is set to appear in Grand Theft Auto IV. The comedian's cameo role will include three minutes of new material and some jokes from his sell-out "Fame" tour and will be preformed in Liberty City's Comedy Club.

Speaking to Shortlist magazine Gervais said that he had to squeeze into a lycra motion capture suit during the making of the game and "that wasn't so good." Thanks for taking one for the team Ricky!

The Comedy Club is just one of several new recreational activities that will be introduced in GTA IV along with bowling, darts and old fashioned boozing. Gervais also said that he turns up elsewhere in the game but he was keeping schtum about where.

Grand Theft Auto IV is released on April 29 and follows the fortunes of Niko Bellic, an Eastern European immigrant who arrives in Liberty City to pursue the American Dream.

The inclusion of new Ricky Gervais material is an added bonus, but it's the prospect of the online multiplayer missions that are giving us a gaming chubby, they're sure to destroy the health and love lives of all who come into contact with Rockstar's new offering. Only 11 days to go!!
