IGN: '' Voice actor Nolan North talks about his career, Marvel Heroes, and new rumors on Up at Noon. Plus, we pit Walking Dead against Game of Thrones.''
That would be.... Too weird... As much as I love Nolan for his performances, I just can't see it. (or rather, hear it.)
We're gonna have to call him Solid Drake or Nathan Snake.
Well, it would be Naked Drake or Nathan Snake, maybe even Big Drake or Nathan Boss.
^Naked Drake...? Yeah, I love Drake but I would rather not imagine that. XD
Nolan North is verstile, also did Captain Martin Walker in Spec Ops: The Line and was great. but Snake still needs a sharp voice, something like Clint Eastwood
Or we could call him Papa Bouba Diop. I like North, but for me Hayters rusty, gravel voice IS snakes voice for me, its just a part of the series as anything else. Like, most gaming protagonist have regular generic voices but the minute you hear snakes voice you know exactly who it is straight away. It is going to be very weird hearing snake as another generic voice, it wont feel right at all.
Big boss:Kitty got wet. BOO! Young Justice cancelation! Hope they get Nolan North as a cameo in The Last of Us, that would be awesome.
I could see it happening if he made his voice more gritty for the role.
And as much as I love his voice acting.....I don't want his bloody voice slapped on Snakes' image.
Nolan North is one of my favorite voice actors... but to have him be Snake would be rather off-putting for me. Couldn't they just get Doyle who voiced Big Boss in MGS4?
I agree, Doyle is a better choice than the current va (David H still the best though).
Agreed wholeheartedly. David Hayter will always be my first choice for Snake in a Metal Gear game with voice acting.
oh god no, Nolan is overused.
Am I in the minority that actually loves him? All his characters I remember so fondly. Funny thing is, I didn't like some of his characters at first, but then I loved them. He brings such personality to'his roles, and they are not all the same, though his voice is distinct. Desmond from'Assassin's Creed. Nathan Drake from'Uncharted. Sergeant Forge from Halo Wars. Those characters funnily enough I didn't like when I first played them, but after I absolutley loved them. He brings such charm and charisma to his characters. Spec Ops was great for him also, it really showed what he can do as a voice actor. He has a great humour to'him also.
He's not over used, it's how they use him. When it comes to acting it's about giving whatever the director wants. If they want his natural voice, he'll give it to them. If they want something different, he'll give it to them. Listen to Nolan North's voice as The Penguin in Batman Arkham City. I could normally pick up certain actors by listening to the voice, but I had no idea he played The Penguin. Brilliant voice acting. https://www.youtube.com/wat...
He's way overused. He's Drake, Desmond Miles, Deadpool, Superman, Superboy...random thug in Batman, dude from Spec Ops,etc. I say we need more Troy Baker...
Man this whole thing has just gotten weird. I'm a huge Metal Gear fan. Nolan North is that dude. But I still feel trapped in limbo over David Hayter not being involved. If Snake ends up sounding soft, its really gonna hurt the big picture, because sadly, too much focus will be on the voice.
Please.... please ....please NOO@!@!@!!@
I'm still staring at the title and trying to make sense of it...
Watch the damn video before commenting. He already said he wouldn't do it during the episode of up at noon. Everyone takes everything out of context or just reads the titles to articles instead of reading or watching something to find out the truth.
No, not Nolan North again. You can not blame the Studios for picking him, but you can blame him for accepting almost every Job in a Game, he is just everywhere, it was really bad 3 Years ago. He fits great for Drake, and probably some other Hero Stereotypes but im sure there are more Voice Actors out there wanting a Job.
@Angerfist '....You can not blame the Studios for picking him, but you can blame him for accepting almost every Job in a Game, he is just everywhere....' Your comment is absolute foolishness...Nolan has to earn a living and you're suggesting he turn down Jobs so some other actor can work??? ..What world do you live in??
I know, sounds stupid, but have you heard of oversaturation? Thats with a Song you like, then it gets played every Hour and you start to hate it, same here.
No, I blame lazy studios for constantly picking him.
Nolan is hilarious!
god i hope not
he's in almost everythink already i swear,
After watching the interview, the answer is no.
Nolan north is great but i feel like my character is nathan drake.
God guys he is not solid snake .. he is big boss! if drake had a clone I wouldn't care if that clone had a different actor.
Please God No!
