Rockstar first revealed last December that Grand Theft Auto 5 features three different playable characters, and then introduced the men in the game's second trailer. Michael, the oldest of the group, is a middle-aged former bank robber whose family is driving him crazy. Franklin works for a business that repossesses cars.
