William Robert "Billy Bob" Bean is a character in the Grand Theft Auto series who appears as the leader of the Rednecks and as a main character in Grand Theft Auto 2.

He is a traditionalist, and hates everything that is different from him. His portrait has a striking resemblance to famous musician Elvis Presley. He has a daughter named Mary-Joe Bean, who is mentioned in the mission Benson Burner! The Rednecks are currently at war with The Scientists and The Zaibatsu Corporation. Bean is far more intelligent than he looks, as he uses Claude to pose as a member of the Zaibatsu and orders him to attack the Scientists, which results in a gang war between the two. Eventually, Bean agrees to a peace meeting with the Zaibatsu which is sabotaged by Claude under the orders of Dr.LaBrat, leader of the Scientists. Claude then kidnaps an influential Redneck member and brings him to the Scientists. In response to the kidnapping, The Rednecks unsuccessfully try to destroy the Scientists' generators. Meanwhile, The Zaibatsu Corporation are angry over the peace meeting and launch a full scale war on the Rednecks. The Rednecks were weakened along with the Zaibatsu and Scientists, due to Claude Speed working for all gangs, leading Billy, LaBrat, and Red Valdez of the Zaibatsu to attack Claude, however, Billy Bob and the other two leaders are killed by Claude. According to the GTA2 official site, he has a fake email address: billybob@hickmail.com. He throws Molotov Cocktails during The Final Job, and drives a Pickup.
