* HeyItsThatVoice:
** Jimmy, Michael's son, is voiced by and modeled after Danny Tamberelli. You might remember him as little Pete on ''Series/TheAdventuresOfPeteAndPete'' or Arnold from ''[[Literature/TheMagicSchoolBus The Magic School Bus]]''.
*** If that doesn't do it for you, he was part of the ''Series/AllThat'' cast once upon a time.
** Five years before the events of the game, Steve Haines was [[VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoIVTheBalladOfGayTony the doorman of Hercules]]. And in a past life, he was [[VideoGame/RedDeadRevolver Red Harlow]].
** Creator/LiamOBrien voices several radio advertisements using a voice reminiscent of [[Anime/CodeGeass Lloyd Asplund]].
** Creator/JimCummings makes his first ''GTA'' appearance as a radio announcer, an [=AmmuNation=] clerk, a police officer and an Australian-accented friend of Dom's; Bill Ratner ([[WesternAnimation/GIJoeARealAmericanHero Flint]] and a frequent TV station announcer) also does a couple of radio spots, as does another TV station VO, [[http://www.ericgordon.com Eric Gordon]].
** Denise Clinton is voiced by Janet Hubert, who you may remember as [[Series/TheFreshPrinceOfBelAir Vivian Banks]] ([[TheOtherDarrin in the first three seasons, anyway]]).
** ''GTA V'' continues the tradition of hiring well-known musicians and personalities to provide voiceovers for the in-game radio stations. The fact that ''GTA V'' does ''not'' come with a printed list of game credits (unlike ''GTA IV'' and earlier games) increases the surprise as players generally won't know who is on what radio station until they either pull a GuideDangIt or read the credits at the end of the game.
*** Creator/PamGrier (as "Mama G") is the DJ of Lowdown FM
*** Kenny Loggins [=DJs=] Los Santos Rock Radio
*** Bootsy Collins is the DJ of Space 103.2
*** [[Music/BlackFlag Keith Morris]] is the DJ of Channel X
*** DJ Pooh does West Coast Classics
*** Cara Delevigne does Non-Stop Pop FM
*** Flying Lotus (AKA Captain Murphy) is the DJ of his own station, [=FlyLo=] FM.
*** On that same station, DavidFirth (creator of ''SaladFingers'') of all people can be heard.
** Like in ''IV'', several comic actors have their own shows on talk radio; of note is Danny [=McBride=] as Duane Earl on Blaine County Radio, and J.B. Smoove as Dr. Ray De Angelo Harris on WCTR.

* PromotedFanboy: Hannibal Burress has said in the past that he's a big GTA fan, and even [[https://youtu.be/EIxY27x3Y1Q?t=2m7s did a bit]] about ''IV'' in his stand-up; ironically, he got his cameo on [=FlyLo=] FM from Flying Lotus himself being a big fan of Hannibal's comedy.

** Creator/JimCummings makes his first ''GTA'' appearance as a radio announcer, an [=AmmuNation=] clerk, and a police officer; Bill Ratner ([[WesternAnimation/GIJoeARealAmericanHero Flint]] and a frequent TV station announcer) also does a couple of radio spots, as does another TV station VO, [[http://www.ericgordon.com Eric Gordon]].

** There was going to be a heist called "The Sharmoota Job" that would have involved a "nice house" and stealing a safe, a horse and someone's wife. It would have involved Michael and Trevor and have three options for how it would have been performed. In the final game this is reduced to Trevor [[spoiler:kidnapping Madrazo's wife off-screen, with Michael being unhappy about it when he finds out]], partly because the horse riding mechanism from VideoGame/RedDeadRedemption couldn't be implemented into the game.

** Saints Row still got a good one over by releasing the "GAT V" DLC on the same day as the console release, making a stand for PC gamers by offering it for free on that day. (Also eventually by having the expansion and the bundled next gen port out before GTA reached the PC)

** Based on the amount of available combat and hijacking vocals for NPCs in the game, it's safe to guess that the online player characters were once planned to be voiced.
