Kiefer Sutherland, most famous for his role as Jack Bauer in 24, will star as Snake in Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain, Hideo Kojima has announced.

Sutherland will lend his voice and facial movement to the role.

We'd earlier learned that Snake voice actor veteran David Hayter would no longer be involved.

"... facial movement to the role."

That'll be a first for the series.

Well he is getting on a bit and been through hell to boot.

Half the problem is the insistence on still calling the character Snake, as opposed to Big Boss.
While Solid Snake has always been voiced by David Hayter, Big Boss has also been voiced by Richard Doyle and Solidus Snake (Big Boss' perfectly clone, of similar age to him during MGS5) by John Cygan.

I do think it's a big shame still, but not an unexpectedly impossible one.
If it's a reasonable sounding transition somewhere in-between the BB of Peace Walker and the BB of MGS4, there shouldn't really be a problem.

Snake has gained a case of the old chubby chops in that picture. If I were him I'd be fuming.
