This is absolutely crazy. So apparently the dude who plays the voice of Niko in GTA IV signed a contract for $100,000 to play the role.
But the funny part is he isn't getting any residuals from the sales of the game which has already surpassed the $600 Million mark (Holy Shit!).
"It's tough, when you see Grand Theft Auto IV out there as the biggest thing going right now, when they're making hundreds of millions of dollars, and we don't see any of it," Hollick told the Times. "I don't blame Rockstar. I blame our union for not having the agreements in place to protect the creative people who drive the sales of these games."
Unlike Music & Film, Video Games have yet to have a set structure as far as residuals or royalties for actors or musicians who have songs or voice over roles on games are concerened (or at least not as concrete).
