They really should use Kurt Russell from escape from New York
Violater  +   2814d ago
Russel is old news and cheesy,
Bale is Batman, hot sh!t right now.
gaffyh  +   2814d ago
I think the voice matters as much as the look of the actor, so I think Hugh Jackman would have been the best, but Christian Bale has a voice similar to Snake and he is a very good actor.
acetw1n  +   2814d ago
I say
I say Hugh hackman
SCThor  +   2814d ago
Maybe Kurt Russel could play Old Snake...
...in a future sequel of the movie. A question for everyone:

Who could play Raiden??
gaffyh  +   2814d ago
They should also get Michael Shanks (Daniel Jackson from Stargate SG-1) for Otacon, he would really suit the role.
InMyOpinion  +   2814d ago
I say Ben Affleck!
HateBoy  +   2814d ago
Clay Aiken, no doubt.

He already screw up the Jack Ryan Charactor (what were they thinking ,not using Harrison Ford) and you want him to screw snake too?

Bale wasn't my first choice, but he's a good actor, I think he'd do it well.

No ones said Ed Norton yet. I dont know if it really suits him but hes so brilliant I think he could pull anything off. How would have thought he'd do something with as much power as American History X?
barom  +   2813d ago
omg Affleck?

What are you? Gay?

Hugh Jackman would have been tha bomb though. Bale is alright I guess, he kinda reminds me of Tom Cruise (gayyyy) in some way though.
InMyOpinion  +   2813d ago
I was joking about Affleck, he should be banned from acting. For real though, John Travolta!
Observer  +   2814d ago
Hugh Jackman looks very Solid Snakeish too, but he's out of the question since he has a busy filming schedule in 2008-2009
ShiftyLookingCow  +   2814d ago
not for me, after seeing him a thousand times as Wolverine
THC CELL  +   2814d ago
anything is better than Chuck Norris.

Kurt i must say he is one of the best classic actors i can think of

PS Snake is old
HeartlesskizZ  +   2814d ago
I like Chris Bale. he is handsome and he does have similar voice with snake. to bad Bruce willis is bold so is Vin D.
WAR_MACHINE77  +   2814d ago
I think kurt would be a great choice too. he has the ruff look and voice, and it would be a great inside joke for the fans.
beavis4play  +   2814d ago
can't go wrong with russel or bale
MaximusPrime  +   2814d ago
i think Christian Bale will do well with MGS. (and hes a Brit ;) )
THE_JUDGE  +   2814d ago
He's Welsh
not exactly British.

To Below: If its the same then why would he say he's Welsh? He doesn't have a British accent, he has a Welsh accent.

Actually being welsh is being british.

@the judge
I think your confusing British with English - which isn't at all uncommon to do. English, Scottish and Welsh people are all equally British - and they all have different accents. There is no "British" accent. Heck how many different English accents are there - lots! Same goes for Scotland and Wales. Saying "British" accent is like saying American accent - practically every State in America has at least one unique accent.
P4KY B  +   2814d ago
Bale is the best choice.
He should have won an oscar for Equilibrium. (criminally overlooked because people thought it was a Matrix rip-off. It was more like 1984 and Logans Run)
The Prestige was a work of genius that sadly seemed overlooked by almost everyone.
Batman was great.
Empire of the sun was a classic.
His acting in The Machinist was legendary.

and can we pretend he wasn't in Reign of Fire

You forgot American Psycho. His portrayal of Patrick Bateman is so close to the book it's almost creepy.
WilliamRLBaker  +   2814d ago
yes bale is best
he just has the features and voice that scream snake.
As for that I've seen all those movies and like reaf said you forgot american psycho.

As for reign of fire Bale was the only saving grace of that film so i can watch that film because of that.

you've GOT TO SEE 310 to UMA! that movie is amazing! its one of bales best roles yet.

UJUSTLOSTONE  +   2814d ago
I agree totally with you on that one P4KY B
And you know he can do that raspy voice like snake's because of Batman

I also liked him in that Dragon movie, even though he was kinda soft in it

Equilibrium was a great movie, I have got to find a copy.

Great choice for Snake, he is a great actor. I like Kurt to, but the younger generation won't really gravitate to him as snake. Hugh Jackman is a little played out to me and is not as good of an actor as Christian.In American Psycho he was craaazzyy Good.

Hope he gets it.
P4KY B  +   2814d ago

Sorry, how could i have forgotten American Psycho.
Its a Masterpiece
gerth666  +   2814d ago
equilibrium is one of best action films of all time.
Hatchetforce  +   2814d ago
I can live with Bale. I prefer Jackman, but I can see Bale doing it. I could also do with the original Wolverine, Dougray Scott.
sajj316  +   2814d ago
Solid Batman
Literally a 'solid' choice. Can't wait for The Dark Knight. Does this mean dual roles as Liquid? I wonder who would play Ocelot?
heroman711  +   2814d ago
hell yes. batman begins was fucing sick and the dark knight is gonna b better. if u trhink of it, chris bale would b perfect choice if solid snake will have long hair like in mgs2
dauden  +   2814d ago
My vote goes to Josh Holloway. http://imdb.com/name/nm0391...

I only know him from Lost, but he is very capable of bad ass but believable acting.
MaximusPrime  +   2814d ago
i heard that he will play Maverick (i think that what hes called) in Xmen. You know, the one with the playing cards.
gaffyh  +   2814d ago
I think that was Gambit not Maverick
MaximusPrime  +   2814d ago
ahh thats it. Thanks.
UJUSTLOSTONE  +   2814d ago
@Maverick THAT was effin funny lol
Don't mean to laff, but that was priceless

who care about MGS movie
it will get dwarfed by the HALO and Gears of War movies .. the former being produced by the great Peter Jackson

MGS movie can't be well done -story wise- because cutscenes in MGS games make up 5 - 6 hours .. so no matter how MGS will be, it's story will be half-a$$ed.

All movies based on PS games suck .. Silent Hill was Horrible

and i think MGS would estahblish itself better as a movie than a game although i love the game
HarryEtTubMan  +   2814d ago
MGS will rock my socks off!! HALo blows HAlo blows Halo blows... and I did like silent hill alot ...very creepy

and Fabio as Liquid xD
MACHone  +   2814d ago
Never thought about Bale, but he might actually work. Kurt Russell should definitely make a cameo appearance or something, though (and if anyone doesn't know why, shame on you).
mighty_douche  +   2814d ago
LOL Kurt Russell!!!
the one true and original Snake Pliskin!!
UJUSTLOSTONE  +   2814d ago
@ Mach 1 your absolutely right
I agree, maybe use him in a flashback or something, as long as it works and doesn't look cheesy.

Does anyone know whose directing it? I like the Steven Speilberg and Whats his face combo like for Transformers, wich was a great movie by the way.
mighty_douche  +   2814d ago
who stars, also as the dont £uck the story up!

hey i wonder in the movie if he'll use a ps3 pad to control the little metal gear MK11 thing!! that would kick ass!!
sloth4urluv  +   2814d ago
Taht would be pure cheese.
If you want the movie to be like that you should have van damme be snake then.
Brandon  +   2814d ago
what about david hayter? he is perfect for snake, he is half japanese half american like snake and he also look alike, at least he should do the voice dubbing in the movie too
Meus Renaissance  +   2814d ago
I'm more hyped about The Dark Knight
Than a MGS movie. Honestly. No wait, Superman 2 is higher on my list than MGS
mighty_douche  +   2814d ago
but not superman, found the new one quite dissapointting, i think they tried to stay true to the original Christopher Reeves ones, which is understandable but i woulda liked a bit more action! i wanna see superman smashing people through buildings and the like, ive had enough of the "Ooooh i wonder how louis will get out of this one..."

what about a Batman Vs Superman? the comics always rocked!! a movie would to!

edit: yeah i heard he said something like that in an interview! but who would win? id like to think Batman like in the comics, he makes gloves out of cryptonite (dont know how to spell it before some one jumps on me) and then proceeds to beat the sh1t out of superman!

Meus Renaissance  +   2814d ago
Yeah I think it just appealed to the hardcore Superman fans but could not compete with the modern day action hero movies like X-Men and Spiderman. But Bryan Singer has promised more action for the sequel, this time with two villains.

Superman was the most expensive movie made I heard? Over $200m for a budget. As for a Batman v Superman? Interestingly Bale said this would happen but after Batman 2 and Superman 2.

there is gonna be batman and superman mighty douche
it's called justice leage comming out in 2009
sloth4urluv  +   2814d ago
@ douche
I agree with you on that.
Never was into comics, but I always prefered batman to superman.
Superman was like invincible to anyone that didnt have kryptonite.
Batman didnt have any super powers, he just kicked ass.
Lightning Mr Bubbles  +   2814d ago
I hope not, I find Bale annoying somehow.
I would go with Kurt Russell also. Even Huge Jackman over this guy.
johnnywit  +   2814d ago
I would choose Clint Eastwood. He is probably my favorite actor. But, I understand that he is to old and Bale would be perfect for this day and age.Could you imagine Clint playing snake in his prime? It would be perfect.

pyth0n  +   2814d ago
WTF? Do you guys really want to see Metal Gear Solid as a Live Action movie? Come on! How about a CGI movie (so that David Hayter can still voicing Solid Snake)? We all know that most films that were based on games kinda suck....Please don't screw us again Hollywood
sloth4urluv  +   2814d ago
Remembers street fighter....
That movie didnt suck it was pure awsome.

David Hayter....
I think he is the only logical choice. He fits the bill perfect and he is the voice of snake.

hey, i live in the usa, and thought those 2 movies were very well done, i dont think anyone other than bale could have pulled those two off, :)

if Owen Wilson was more skinny and perhaps younger, he could have played as Raiden

O yes with his deformed (NEVER SEEN ANYONE WITH NOSE LIKE)nose he would be great Raiden buahaha
