At least one accomplished actor is suitably impressed with the technology that goes into modern video games.
"24" actor Kiefer Sutherland is on board to voice the iconic Snake in the upcoming Metal Gear Solid V . And during a recent IGN interview , we find out that Sutherland is just blown away by the process:
"You know, I've got, like, 50 metal dots on my face, 50 cameras recording my every facial movement. The process and the technology and what I have to go through just to do a line, and what the engineers and technicians have to do, it's unbelievable."
Sutherland mentioned one scene that was so impressive that he was actually able to see his character's ears move. Hell, he could even detect a pulse based on how Snake's throat moved. …that's pretty insane, by the way. As for a comparison to the film industry, Sutherland says in fact, this is how Hollywood is going to do things in the future.
"This is how they're going to make movies soon. They're halfway there now, you know, but they're going to make films like this. This is not far off."
I know the long-time MGS fans were sad to see David Hayter go, but I've said it from the start: I think Kiefer will do a bang-up job.
