Dealspwn looks back at one of Halo's finest characters, the Aliens' inspired Sergeant Johnson, and what he means to Microsoft's blockbuster franchise
Everyone loves Sergeant Johnson :P
we need a halo film
It's about time.
Samuel L Jackson as Johnson would be awesome IMO. Fuck it, throw Chris Tucker in there as Master Chief. ;)
@Jmorgan - Keith David would make a perfect Sargent Johnson as they both sound alike.
@Jmorgan That black guy from Aliens I think would be great..forget his name off hand.
You're thinking of Al Matthews. But personally, I think Carl Weathers from Predator would be better.
Or better yet, this guy! :P
I remember him telling me words like: "Why hello there soldier...ARE YOU READY TO TAKE THE NEXT STEP??? In the full version of Halo Combat Evolved..." From the PC demo of halo Combat evolved...so many years ago. He's awesome.
Put the Lightbulb down! ~Halo 1 final level: 343 guilty spark
in halo 2 he was so awsome :)
Sgt. Who? (disagree machine inbound)
because he's the token black guy?
How would you prefer he acts then?
I know I'm not the only one who notices this, but I'll ask anyway. Am I the only one who realizes that sergeants or other heads of squads in video games tend to be Black? You can look at Halo, Bad Company, and MW2 as a few good examples. I think it's pretty interesting. :)
It was cliched in cult classic B class movies before video games.
They should have mentioned when you beat The Maw on Legendary. Where he's with who I believe is The Arbiter. Might not be, but that's who I think it is. Regardless, he says to the Elite, this is it baby, hold me. Also, someone needs to compile a list of all the different things he says in Halo at the beginning of the game when he's recruiting the Marines, and In Halo 2 when he brings the tank. Johnson will be back in Halo 4. No doubt about it. It's just one of those things you expect.
Loved this character.
"We Regret being Alien bastards! We Regret coming to earth!..." classic.
Bip! Bap! BAM!
