I'm very excited to see Sam Fisher speak in the Bane voice.

He doesn't look/fit the whole image of Sam Fisher in my opinion

Not all actors are meant to be type-casted into what people think they should be. They are *actors* after all. The notion that they should repeat similar roles is just one of those habits that Hollywood created to devolve movies into bite sized, easily predictable, chunks.

True. Mark Whalberg was The exact actor i thought of Max Payne ...And that movie sucked,

i Wish young Kurt Russel or young Clint Eastwood could play Snake in metal gear solid movie, not the voice actor

That guy from FireFly should Play Nathan Drake in Uncharted and the elena voice actress should play her

And all the actors that were used in the mass effect series should be used for the Movie. I know Sheppard And Miranda are real Actors maby Joker could be played by seth green

"That guy from FireFly should Play Nathan Drake in Uncharted and the elena voice actress should play her"

No No and No

Nolan North should play him if Elena gets her role then Nolan should aswell

I can't picture him as Sam Fisher at all. Doesn't seem old enough, gruff enough, or American enough.

Yeah, but I think he could still do something interesting as a super spy.

Have you seen Warrior that dude is pretty damn gruff, and he is a great actor you guys should be happy, but the more important thing is who will direct and write?

Thank God they didn't cast Shia. You know they thought about it.

best actor in Hollywood for me! great choice! and lifesequal he doesn't look anything like bane in real life but he did an awesome job at that - he is one of the most transformative actors in hollywood

Will they have Sean Connery doing the voice over work like he did with the Bane character? Sam Fisher likes his drink shaken, not stirred.
