In March 2011, a casting call for a project named "Rush" was discovered, at the time many people believed it to be the next GTA game due to it being circulated by casting agents Telsey & Company who had worked with Rockstar Games in the past. As more details about the game emerged the legitimacy of the casting call and its connection to GTA V became more and more apparent. All of the characters listed in the casting call were renamed in the actual game but most of their characteristics remained intact (see notes in the table below). The casting mainly features supporting roles however two of the protagonists Michael and Trevor are featured in other character's descriptions (being renamed Albert and Simon respectively). Below is a full list of characters featured in this casting call and (where possible) their in-game counterparts.
