Alec Baldwin turned down an “incomprehensible amount” of money to appear in the second Grand Theft Auto 2, the actor has said in a new interview.

“[The makers of] Grand Theft Auto came to me to do a voice of some mobster, many years ago, for Grand Theft Auto 2,” Baldwin told IndieWire.

“They offered this incomprehensible amount of money for one day’s work. They offered me a pile of money, this ridiculous amount of money to just come in a record this voice for one or two days.

“I turned them down because [the character] was a cop killer. And I didn’t want to get near that [because] of my reputation; I have enough problems with the press as it is. I said no.”
