Bill Paxton Might Play Jack Thompson In Upcoming GTA Movie

Last week, we heard that Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe was "in talks" to play Rockstar co-founder and CEO Sam Houser in a BBC drama centering on the creation of the iconic Grand Theft Auto franchise.

Now, The Hollywood Reporter claims that more star power may be in store for the production: The Emmy-nominated Bill Paxton, who also has had a prominent film career, is in negotiations to join the cast. He'd play controversial anti-game activist Jack Thompson, which may be a mis-cast...in our dealings with Thompson, we found him to be a freaky megalomaniac with seriously bizarre tendencies. Paxton seems like too normal a guy to pull that off but hey, good actors are supposed to be able to become anybody, right?

For the record, Rockstar is not involved in this "Making of GTA" piece for the BBC and they're a little concerned that it won't be faithful to reality. Well, we'll have to wait and see.

Haha this is awesome. Too bad they couldn't get a true nut like Randy Quaid though.

Thought this was going to be a gta movie with the plot from san andreas or something gta story wise, not the making of. This doesn't sound promising at all especially since hearing harry potty might get a part
