24 star Kiefer Sutherland will be doing the voice of Snake in Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain.
This is the first time David Hayter has not been cast as the bearded badass.
Director Hideo Kojima explained that his producer friend, Avi Arad, suggested Sutherland for the role. "He's the one who introduced me to Mr. Kiefer Sutherland. And I was like 'why didn't I think of that?'" said Kojima at the Konami press conference video, via translation.
