case in point, for video game movies, USE RELATIVELY UNKNOWN but GREAT ACTORS. the movie will do Waaaaaayyyyyy better.

The wrestler looked allot like Marcus Fenix but who wants a wrestler to play him it will ruin the movie. The one who looked most like the game character was Edward Norton hes the splitting image of Gordon Freeman

Agree with #2. Looks fine for Fenix but cmon we need an actor not stunt double. (although they will need that too lol)

also, MGS? were they joking? The guy needs to have an edge and look like he has experienced battle..not a boring meeting and thats assuming they dont make the movie earlier in the timeline.
