Samuel L. Jackson, James Woods lead San Andreas

Chris Penn, George Clinton, Chuck D, Ice-T, Peter Fonda, join a diverse mix of voice talent in Rockstar's crime epic.

With Grand Theft Auto already on its way to retailers, Rockstar has finally revealed the voice cast for the PlayStation 2 action-adventure. Protagonist Carl "CJ" Johnson will be played by Chris Bellard, an aspiring Los Angeles rapper who goes by the musical handle Young Maylay. A friend of DJ Pooh, who co-wrote the scenario, Young Malay will release his first full-length album later this year.

However, while San Andreas' lead will be played by a relative unknown, its voice cast is bursting with famous Hollywood and hip-hop talent. At the top of that list is Samuel L. Jackson, who will portray Officer Tenpenny, the corrupt Los Santos police officer who sets the game's criminal events in motion. Playing his partner will be Chris Penn, brother of Sean Penn and star of Reservoir Dogs.
