The man behind Lamar from GTA V to become Black Jesus

New live-action series coming to Adult Swim

This is TOTALLY barely even videogame related at all but I still wanted to write about it because Lamar from Grand Theft Auto V was one of my favorite characters from a videogame last year. So I'm happy to see Gerald "Slink" Johnson continuing to see success, and in this case it's with Adult Swim's new show, Black Jesus.

The premise of the show sees Jesus (played by Gerald) living in present day Compton "on a daily mission to spread love and kindness throughout the neighborhood with the help of his small but loyal group of downtrodden followers." The show will also star Charlie Murphy, Corey Holcomb, and John Witherspoon, and will premiere later this year.

No footage or anything to share yet, but here's the clip that made me love Lamar from GTA V at least.
