He returns as "Kenny" a new mission guide in the illicit underground racing scene as part of the new GTA Online update, Los Santos Tuners.

Kenny emulates Moody's real-life love of cars and plays a pivotal role in the storyline of the update - which focuses heavily on the games street racing element, where players can modify their cars and challenge each other to races.
