Cast Oscar Isaac in Metal Gear Solid You Cowards

first_img Normally I don’t think “Famous Actor X Wants To Play Famous Character Y” stories are that newsworthy because who wouldn’t want high-profile, high-paying work? But sometimes the pairing between actor and character is so perfect that even if there’s only a slight chance of it coming true we owe it to the world to signal boost the possibility. This is one of those times.During an interview with our sister site IGN on his new movie Triple Frontier, Oscar Isaac said that among all video game characters by far the one he’s most interested in playing is Solid Snake from Metal Gear Solid. And by god that casting would be so good it would cowardly for it now not to happen.Just think about it. They aren’t going to cast veteran Snake voice actor David Hayter as the lead in a modern blockbuster. Kiefer Sutherland probably has too much fan baggage for taking up the role in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. So who better to lead your big weird military sci-fi action franchise than the legitimately great actor most recognized for his Star Wars pilot swagger?Kong: Skull Island’s Jordan Vogt-Roberts, the theoretical director of the Metal Gear Solid movie, seems to agree. He posted this gruff BossLogic concept art of Isaac as Snake while saying “the ball’s in Oscar’s court.” However it’s way too early to begin those talks, especially since Vogt-Roberts’ next video game project is a TV adaptation of the Console Wars book.THIS-MUSING-IS-NOT-NEWS-PSA:To everyone asking how I feel about Oscar Isaac saying he wants to be Solid Snake.The full process required to cast an icon hasn’t even started, but..Ask @Bosslogic where the idea for his brilliant mock up came from.The ball’s in Oscar’s court. pic.twitter.com/DKM1gw0Oc2— Jordan Vogt-Roberts (@VogtRoberts) March 4, 2019If there’s one downside to Oscar Isaac as Snake is that it would lead to a Metal Gear Solid movie more awesome than Konami deserves, frankly. Franchise mastermind Hideo Kojima always had cinematic ambitions for the series. So it would be a bummer to see them reach fruition only after he was unceremoniously kicked from the company now more famous for pachinko grifts. That said, working with Norman Reedus, Mads Mikkelsen, and Guillermo Del Toro on whatever the Hell Death Stranding is seems to be a nice consolation prize.For more on Metal Gear Solid check out our thoughts on Snake’s appearance in Super Smash Bros.
