The new voice of Snake in the venerated Metal Gear Solid franchise is accomplished actor Kiefer Sutherland.
Some long-time fans are upset that Kojima and Co. dumped David Hayter as the voice for the iconic protagonist, but Sutherland has been nothing but impressed and honored with the gig.
It seems he's also quite enthusiastic about the future of the gaming industry, as indicated by his recent post in the celebrity comments section of the game's official website:
"This is arguably one of the most exciting new frontiers in entertainment. It was an honor and a privilege to work with [Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima] who is at its forefront."
These comments were just added to the MGSV site , and they join other Hollywood celebrity comments concerning that awesome E3 trailer for The Phantom Pain . Sutherland may not have a ton of experience working in video games, but it sounds like he may become a fixture in the industry in the near future…
