Red Dead Redemption 2 actor Roger Clark has responded to the Florida Joker demanding compensation from Rockstar Games over GTA VI.

While many gamers flocked to social media in delight after Rockstar Games released it's trailer for GTA VI a day early, Lawrence Sullivan - a.k.a. the 'Florida Joker' - didn't have quite the same response.

And who should now weigh into the conversation? Well, actor Clark, who is best known for portraying Arthur Morgan in fellow Rockstar Games' creation Red Dead Redemption 2.

Sullivan took to TikTok shortly after the trailer's release, voicing the similarities he'd noticed between himself and one of the characters.

The Florida Joker claimed a character with purple hair and sporting an orange jumpsuit had been 'inspired' by him.

So striking are the similarities, according to Sullivan, he's told GTA they need to 'talk'. And if GTA and/ or Rockstar Games refuse? Well, Sullivan thinks they should give him 'like a mil or two'.

"So what's up? Holler me GTA, Rockstar Entertainment, Rockstar Games, Rockstar Enterprise. [...] Y'all took my likeness. Y'all took my life," he resolves in one video.

While GTA and Rockstar Games have yet to seemingly make contact with Sullivan, Red Dead Redemption 2 actor Roger Clark has instead.

Replying to Sullivan in a TikTok stitch video, Clark captions his video: "No disrespect but for real."

He continues in his address to Sullivan: "No you don't. You don't need to talk to them. They're not going to talk to you.

"They've had people like you trying to sue them for decades. They are lawyered up. They know exactly what they can and cannot get away with.

"If I were you, I would use the notoriety that they just threw your way, to my advantage, capitalise on it somehow. You ain't getting a job in Home Depot with that face."

Indeed, Lindsay Lohan tried to sue Rockstar Games over the character of Lacey Jonas in Grand Theft Auto, her lawyers arguing the game had used her physical likeness as well as voice within the character among other various attributes.

The Mean Girls star was unsuccessful, with a panel of five judges rejecting her application, ruling the character was not 'recognisable' as her.

Reality TV star Karen Graveno also brought a case against Rockstar Games, suing them for $40 million in 2014.

Similar to Lohan, she claimed the character Antonia Bottino was actually based on her story and her likeness. However, her claim was also rejected.

Sullivan has yet to respond to Clark. UNILAD has contacted Lawrence Sullivan for comment.
