Joseph Kaplan (Czech: Josef Kaplan, pronounced Yossef Kaplan) is a forty-one year old Czech immigrant living in Hove Beach, Broker, Liberty City. He is a known associate of Mikhail Faustin and other Russian criminals in the area. Although he has only one conviction (in 2003 for sexual assault) he is suspected by police of running a prostitution ring in a Hove Beach Sex Shop and also making low budget pornographic movies in it's basement. Several young women have filed reports against Kaplan, including prostitute Marnie Allen, claiming that they were conned into appearing in his films.

Kaplan is seen in the mission Do You Have Protection? in which Niko Bellic shoots his employee Brett as a warning for not paying Faustin a cut of his profits from the movies he makes and he is knocked out cold with a hit to the head with a gun by Dimitri Rascalov.


  • Despite what many people think, Kaplan does not share a voice actor with Luca Silvestri. Kaplan is voiced by Jim Norton, while Silvestri is voiced by Robert Kelly. The two have appeared together many times on the Opie & Anthony radio show, where the similarity of their voices has been noted.
