A new candidate for Jason is doing the rounds online, with a supposedly reliable source claiming that Dylan Rourke is voicing the GTA 6 main character.

If you’ve been hearing Dylan Rourke’s name frequently in connection with GTA 6, it’s likely due to the new rumors that he’s playing the game’s male protagonist.

But who exactly is Rourke, and can these rumors be trusted? Let’s get into it:

Who Is Dylan Rourke?

Dylan Rourke is an American actor who has previously starred in a number of TV series, including Modern Family, Grey’s Anatomy, and Station 19, as well as movies such as Send It! and Bury the Bride.

Although he’s not a face that many people will recognize just yet, it’s worth noting that Rockstar tends to prefer to choose relatively unknown actors as its protagonists.

But is there evidence to suggest Rourke is our Jason in GTA 6? Here’s where the rumor originated:

Is Dylan Rourke Playing Jason?

The rumor that Dylan Rourke is playing Jason in GTA 6 appears to have begun circulating from LegacyKillaHD, a YouTuber claiming to have exclusive insider information from a ‘reliable source’ regarding the game’s casting.

However, the actor was first brought into the discussion on GTAforums back in December 2023.

In a post on the social media site X (formerly Twitter), LegacyKillaHD claimed that Dylan Rourke is the actor portraying Jason.

And in that same tweet, the user also states that Manni L. Perez is indeed playing Lucia, as fans had long suspected.

However, it’s worth taking the tweet with a hefty pinch of salt for now. Not only is LegacyKillaHD not a known insider, but there’s little evidence to suggest that Rourke is our Jason, at least at this moment in time.

In fact, we saw an arguably much more likely Jason voice actor candidate appear the other day – one who looks and sounds exactly like the character.

Does He Sound Similar Enough?

Dylan Rourke certainly looks similar enough to Jason, at least what we’ve seen of him so far. But does his voice match up with the character?

We’ve only heard Jason say a single word in GTA 6’s first trailer, but the September 2022 leaks revealed a great deal of dialogue for the male protagonist too.

In this clip from Bury the Bride, we can hear a sample of Rourke’s voice, which is certainly not dissimilar to Jason’s.

Fans will have to make their minds up for themselves on this one. Personally, we don’t think Dylan Rourke is our Jason but he’s certainly a solid candidate for the role.

Until Rockstar Games comes out and confirms the GTA 6 cast list, don’t believe all the rumors you see online!
