7 Actors We Want to Star in a 'Grand Theft Auto' Movie

Character appearances: Grand Theft Auto 5

Actor seen in: Pain and GainGangster Squad, and 8 Mile.

Set to make his comic book movie debut as Falcon in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Anthony Mackie has been acting on the big screen for over a decade - racking up a solid resume of powerful performances (including more than a few morally ambiguous types with charming but deadly personalities). The actor was a stand-out in Michael Bay's dark comedy, Pain and Gain, delivering some of the film's most engaging scenes. Still, Mackie's ability to slip into an ensemble and play-off other quirky performers (such as Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne Johnson) make him an especially smart choice for Franklin - who is one-third of the core Grand Theft Auto protagonist team. Mackie has the talent to help ground the cooky antics of the GTA world with compelling character moments both sincere and felonious - be it the father-son-like relationship depicted between Franklin and Michael or over-the-top antics with his other partner-in-crime, the wacky Trevor.
