"Is the ex-Happy Monday and Black Grape frontman Shaun Ryder set to record dialogue for the next GTA title?

17:12 It's perhaps an unlikely source for videogames tittle-tattle, but a gossip column in UK tabloid newspaper The Daily Mirror suggests that Shaun Ryder, frontman with legendary Mancunian band the Happy Mondays, is set to provide voice acting for the next in the Grand Theft Auto games.
The story quotes "friends" of the singer saying he's been signed up to play a character. It's a rumour that seems a little on the wild side, seeing as last time we saw Shaun he could barely croak a sentence out. Still, there's no denying the former Black Grape vocalist would add a touch of authenticity to the game's criminal proceedings; by his own admission, Shaun is a bit of a character.

Fantastic news if true, then - now if only Rockstar can get Ian Brown to make an appearance, it'll be like the glorious days of '89. Although let's hope Candy Flip aren't invited to the party...
