Rockstar Games should hire this guy

I’ve found the perfect spokesman for Rockstar’s upcoming Grand Theft Auto IV: Jesse James Toro II.

Despite his awesome name, Toro doesn’t sound like a criminal and he didn’t steal anything. But he’s got the skills.

At the very least, Rockstar should give GTA a Toromobile: A White Cadillac STS, with Glockmarks.

Jamieson‘s piece today describes a scene right out of the notorious game series:

The two vehicles tore down Denny Way, then headed north onto Aurora Avenue. Toro reached speeds over 100 mph. The Ford, a sport utility vehicle, struggled to keep up.

Moments later, Toro, who has a concealed weapons permit, took aim and shot out the tires of the officers’ car.

Whoa. That’s better than the new GTA trailer.
