1. Guy (RYAN REYNOLD)
Guy is a habit guy. He has the same daily routine and has never done or accomplished anything extraordinary. Extroverted and perpetually cheerful, but a little naive, Guy is a cashier at a big-city bank and a fan of mid-90s pop divas. However, when he discovers he's actually a minor player in an ultra-violent video game called “Free City” and that it only exists in the game, Guy decides to become the hero of his own story.
