Jock Cranley (GTA V)
|Full Name||Jock Cranley|
Jock Cranley is a former Vinewood actor and stuntman appearing in the 1985 film 18 Wheeler Deathrace. In Grand Theft Auto V, he is a Republican candidate for the gubernatorial race in San Andreas, running against liberal opponent Sue Murry. He claims to hate immigrants and the crippled and says that he cannot stand "unions, cops and old ladies". Unlike Murry, Cranley believes that people should help themselves instead of looking for a helping hand from the government. According to a Los Santos newspaper seen in Sue Murry's rivaling ad, he plans to abolish taxes by selling unneeded parkland and cutting school budgets by 98%.
- Jock Cranley's running for governor is a reference to real-life actor and later future governor of California Arnold Schwarzenegger.
- The high-contrast red and blue image of Cranley seen in the preview, captioned "Dick", is a parody of the Barack Obama "Hope" poster.
