    I guess David couldn't act an emotional face while voice recording, like how Batman's lips are poking out when he does his voice.

    Am I the only one who first thought that maybe this was because they are gonna use him in a MGS movie?

    I'm still puzzled over this. Is Hayter asking more than Sutherland for the role? Because if not (and i'm guessing not) then Sutherland is being used as a draw. But for a game like MGS, which is a pretty big name anyway, it's unnecessary and anyone drawn in by Sutherland's name is probably going to be disappointed by the drawn out exposition the series is known for.

    And for a movie? Please no...

    Hayter wasn't even spoken to by Konami before they revealed their decision to change voice actors.

    Logically there'd be some relevance of his past fees in the decision. Hayter seems to have got on well with Kojima so unless it's a decision that's come from elsewhere in the company (or even a push from Sony themselves) it's a seemingly random move to spend a lot of cash on a "star" to voice an established character. Will this really pay off?

    I loved Hayter's voice.
    I love Kiefer Sutherland/24.

    I love Kiefer the most in Dark City (film) and he was also rather compelling in Touch (a unique drama that was recently cancelled after two seasons on FOX)

    Let's all agree on something. David Hayter IS snake.

    Let's all agree on something else. If we cant have Hayter, Kiefer Sutherland is a decent non-Hayter pick for the voice.

    At least he's taking it well

    That tweet shows he's not taking it well. Maybe I'm just not a huge Hayter fan but all his tweets just sound very whiny. But perhaps that's the point because this is likely some ruse, like the entire "Phantom Pain" thing. I don't remember Kojima pulling weird stunts in the past (not that I really followed anything about him), but all of this just doesn't seem entertaining to me.
