"We've cared about people for too long! I'm not extending a helping hand, I'm giving you all the finger!"
―Jock Cranley

John "Jock" Cranley is an actor, stunt double, and later a politician who appears in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online.

3D UniverseEdit

Cranley became famous during the 1980s for his hit TV show, Stunt Double, and would later go on to star in movies, like Nighthawk 5, The Mainframe and 18-Wheeler Deathrace.

Cranley warns against the use of drugs and admits to having had problems with drugs in the past. He was arrested by the VCPD, although he was later released, claiming it was a stunt double committing the crimes on PSA he was assigned to do.

HD UniverseEdit

Prior to fame, Cranley used to live in Blaine County. During the 1970s, Cranley aspired to be a professional stuntman in Los Santos, but his wife Jolene objected to them moving to Los Santos as she wanted to stay in Blaine County. So one day, when the couple went hiking up Mount Gordo in 1978, Cranley threw his wife over the side of a cliff, killing her. He was taken into custody by the police but immediately released without charge.

In GTA V, he is the main conservative candidate in the upcoming gubernatorial election in State of San Andreas. His main rival is the liberal candidate Sue Murry. He has commercials on TV and a website at Jockcranley.com. On these, Cranley promises to eliminate taxes by selling off unnecessary parkland and reducing the education budget by 98%. He is reported to attempt to humiliate his opponent a lot, calling her "names that rhyme with 'front' and 'scratch'", portraying her as a bloody, demonic monster, and even throwing feces at her campaign headquarters. He also appears as a guest on Bless Your Heart, a talk show on Blaine County Talk Radio. He and the host, Bobby June, discuss politics, the election, Cranley's background, and do some cooking. During the show, Cranley reveals that he has had three families and it is implied that he is sexually attracted to the friends of his 16-year-old daughter.

In his radio advertisements, Cranley states that he hates "immigrants, gays, and the crippled" and also "can't stand unions, cops or old ladies".

It is not known what the outcome of the election was, but by 2018, Jock Cranley had become a sports commentator for the Arena Wars events happening at the Maze Bank Arena, which probably means he retired from politics regardless of the outcome (California governor terms are 4 years, meaning Cranley/Murry would have started in January 2014-2018; presumably, the Arena Wars take place after the inauguration of the unnamed succeeding governor, which means Cranley either lost the election in 2013, or lost re-election in 2017, or won and chose not to run for a second term).

PersonalityEdit

Despite his seemingly affable demeanor, Jock is unhinged as he murdered his own wife simply because she didn't want to move to Los Santos. When acting as a sports commentator, his co-commentator Alan Jerome is frequently disturbed by Jock's comments, eventually telling him to stay "in his lane".

During his campaign, Jock will openly speak about his views on immigrants and sexual orientation, stating that he hates gays. Further on his statement, he rants about not helping people and instead giving them "the finger". Jock's point was apparently to be open and honest with his views, in contrast to the hypocritical Sue Murry. However, his extremist views still show him as unsuitable for office.
