  • Amanda - Unknown
  • Tracey - Unknown

Development of JimmyEdit

Jimmy's role was to introduce a family sort of relationship in Grand Theft Auto V, as Dan Houser has stated that the relationship between Michael and Jimmy is one relationship the fans have never seen in a GTA game or in any games before. Dan Houser also expresses excitement over the "family thing" that he describes as fresh and weird, since the fans of the series have never see a lot of family stuff.

Dan Houser's Take on JimmyEdit

"I love Jimmy, Michael's son. The actor captures the story of a whiny, lazy, pot-smoking-20-year-old kid so brilliantly. They've got this awful and confused father-son relationship. You've never seen a relationship like that in a GTA game or in games before. You never see a lot of family stuff. So you have a full family thing that we are excited by, because it seems sort of fresh and weird."
―Dan Houser as he describes Jimmy.


Jimmy has a chubby appearance along with orange hair and two tattoos, one on his neck that says the word "Entitled" and another tattoo on his right arm that looks like either a bone or a scorpion. The clothes he wears in the second trailer are a red and black jersey with the number 07 on the back, dark blue jeans, a pair of black and white sneakers and a silver necklace to match.
