―BJ Smith

BJ Smith is a character from the Grand Theft Auto series who appears as a minor character in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City.

Smith is a retired football player and businessman.

BJ Smith was voiced by Lawrence "LT" Taylor, a real-life NFL Hall of Fame linebacker who played for the New York Giants.

His name, BJ, is a common abbreviation of the term blow job, an act of oral sex upon a man.

Smith shares several traits with former NFL star and suspected murderer O.J. Simpson (BJ also hints robbing a store during a K-CHAT interview, although it remains to be seen if this is simply a figure of speech or an actual event).

Although Smith does not make any appearances in the HD Universe, the BJ Smith Recreational Center in Grand Theft Auto V is named after him, proving that he still exists in the HD Era.



BJ Smith is a former tight-end for the Vice City Mambas, a professional American football team, and has decided to concentrate on business. He has since purchased Sunshine Autos and renamed it to BJ's Used Autos and has released his own fitness video called BJ's Fit for Football.


BJ has struggled to come to terms with life after his football career, although he is known to frequent Colonel Cortez' yacht party. The police are also investigating Smith for his used car business, which they suspect is a front for selling stolen cars. Smith is in debt and is doing anything for money, including training for a return to pro football, but upcoming crime lord Tommy Vercetti bought his dealership from him as a front for his car theft ring. He continued the underground chop shop business, "Donating" stolen cars and also participating in illegal street races. BJ announced to Tommy that he was coming out of retirement and preparing his future comeback.

BJ Smith's approach in life is said to be heavy handed, citing football as an inspiration to his claims of resolving many of life's challenges with aggression and violence. The Vice City Police Department's file on Smith also says that he is known for violently tackling his opponents.
