MGS4 Voice Cast Announced

David HayterThe voice cast for Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots has been confirmed today by Konami (well, some of it at least), and if you’re a fan of the series the acting talent on board will be a welcomed familiarity. David Hayter will once again lead the way, redefining his long-time role as Solid Snake who, as we’ve seen from the game’s killer trailers, has aged dramatically. Alongside Hayter, actors Quinton Flynn, Paul Eiding and Christopher Randolph are returning to their respective roles as Raiden, Roy Campbell and Hal “Otacon” Emmerich. These are hardly unexpected developments, but it’s always good to get confirmation on these sort of things.

“I couldn’t be more excited about this game. What I’ve seen of Metal Gear Solid 4 has absolutely blown me away. To bring the focus of the story back to Solid Snake, and to work with Kris Zimmerman and many of the amazing actors that provided iconic voices for the previous games, is like coming home,” said David Hayter. “I’m so proud and grateful to have been involved with Mr. Kojima as the voice of Snake, for nearly a decade, on this legendary video game series. This game is going to plunge players into the ultimate Metal Gear experience. And personally, I can’t wait to play it.”

Today’s session of The Kojima Productions Report podcast also has David Hayter as a special guest discussing the MGS series and his evolving role as the aging Solid Snake in MGS4 (and more). It’s good stuff, so definitely check it out.
