Is this guy joking? Nathan fillion, Patrick Wilson and Robert jr!!! Jeremy Rennes!? Lol what happened to bale or Hugh Hackman? Lol this is the worst list ever!! If Robert Downey jr was casted people would just think its tropic thunder 2. Most of them are cool actors but no way could they be SNake. This must be a joke Patrick Wilson xD

Loved him in undisputed as Boyka I'm not sure though I need to see him in mullet. I'm sure about one th ing though he's a better pick then anyone on that list. Also would prefer a Brit as the pick.

@below um no Bruce Willis would be the better pick for old snake. Jeremy Rennes is a cool actor but just doesn't have the intense look you need with snake. About Robert Downey I'm assuming snake is going to be running around in a jungle with camo and everything he would ALS have to put on a voice that's hy I said tropic thunder 2(looks like you didn't get what I meant) and yea obviously he's associated with iron man and Sherlock Holmes more.

@hellsvacancy almost as absurd as people who wanted The guy from blood diamond Djimon hounsou to play kratos xD didn't know his name was Djimon xD how can a Greek guy be played by a black guy? (yes I know the voice actor is black)

HammadTheBeast1909d ago

He's cool and all, but shouldn't be Snake. I prefer Shia Lebeouf. LOLOLOLOLLOLOL.

knowyourstuff1909d ago

lol and this is why stupid people on the internet with no talent are not put in charge of casting for big budget movies.

Lord_Sloth1909d ago

Umm...What? Jeremy Renner and Jeff Bridges would be great choices!

Tropic Thunder 2 and no. Robert Downy JR is more associated with Iron Man and Sherlock Holmes.

Capt-FuzzyPants1909d ago

Yeah especially since Downey Jr. didn't even look like himself in Tropic Thunder. He was dressed up as a black guy until like the last scene.

Campy da Camper1909d ago

Actually, Jeff Bridges could seriously pull it off. Good call.

Capt-FuzzyPants1909d ago

Yaeh the first person I thought of was Hugh Jackman. But I love Christian Bale and would watch anything he's in. I loved Batman. They should get Nolan as the director.

Lord_Sloth1909d ago

OH GOD NO! KEEP NOLAN AWAY FROM MY METAL GEAR! He removes everything unrealistic.

Capt-FuzzyPants1909d ago

Lol that is true. I just loved what Nolan did with Batman and I thought Inception was pretty good movie too. I don't really care who the director is as long as this movie doesn't become a joke like many other video game movies.

ChunkyLover531909d ago

If Bale would do the retarded Batman voice as Snake, I'd probably shoot myself.

finbars751909d ago (Edited 1909d ago )

What about Michael Fassbender he would be awsome especially where he can actually act or even Sean Bean.I think there are alot of good options for this part but Im not a fan of the editors choices.Just because there big names doesntmean there good for the part.Sometimes even picking an up and comer is really the best way to go.

Tigerfist1909d ago

Not Sean Bean! I don't Solid Snake to die during the first half of the movie.

LackTrue4K1909d ago (Edited 1909d ago )

Gilbert Gottfried can play as snake.
(he has that squinting that snake dose down)

LAZL0-Panaflex1909d ago

Seeing as snake is based out of escape from new about Kurt Russell??

InTheLab1909d ago

Maybe old Snake or Kurt Russell during the Big Trouble in Little China Escape from NY years...

Blacktric1909d ago (Edited 1909d ago )

Robert Downey Jr.? Are you kidding me? The guy is a good actor because he usually plays narcisistic a-holes which fits his own real life personality. He will never EVER be able to pull of Solid Snake or any character from a Metal Gear game. EVER. And Nathan Fillion should stick to doing cheap Halo commercials or videos. Jeremy Renner is barely a half-decent drama actor and Patrick Wilson, although talented, wouldn't be a good fit overall (because of his looks and his previous work). The only "sane" choice in that list is Jeff Bridges.

"Downey would have so much fun with the role you’ll forget how bad video game movies were before this."

Jesus, like that is the point of a Metal Gear movie...

If they are going to choose from known actors, Christian Bale would be a good choice. Although his looks doesn't exactly match Snake's, his acting work and especially his dedication to the characters he plays (The Machinist is the best example of this) is unbelievable. Hugh Jackman has the resemblence but his previous work also doesn't really match to something like a Metal Gear movie.

Edit: Now that someone mentioned him at below, Karl Urban also looks the part.

i would choose Christian Bale, or Liam Neeson to play Solid Snake instead of those ridiculous choices.

Hellsvacancy1909d ago

Will Smith will get the part

j-blaze1909d ago

make it CGI, keep the original design

Pieface081909d ago

Tom cruise would be the best choice period ....

LackTrue4K1909d ago

i read your comment and was like....
"what the hell is this fool talking about, the role is to short???" hahaha.....but now i get it!!!!
i needed that laugh, thanks

Camb316911909d ago (Edited 1909d ago )

I don't think he is the best choice. But when I played MGS2 for the first time, I thought Cruise would make an awesome snake. I'm sure there is some one better if Hayter doesnt do it. But I would not have a problem with Cruise.
