It has been over a decade since the Metal Gear Solid movie was announced and since then the movie has not progressed much. However, director Jordan Vogt-Roberts has revealed that the movie is still happening and he has been meeting with Kojima himself.
As the movie is still alive, yo must be wondering what actor should play the role of Solid Snake. So we will be listing the five actors who can play the role of Solid Snake in Metal Gear Solid movie convincingly.
#5 – Scott East Wood
I would personally want Clint Eastwood himself to play the role of Solid Snake if the movie was being produced back in 1970’s. However, we can’t have that as Clint is very old, but we can get the next best thing, which is his son, Scott East Wood.
Scott East Wood’s looks have always caught people’s attention given that he looks a lot like his father who looks like Solid Snake. Scott East Wood will be more than perfect to play the role of Solid Snake in Metal Gear Solid movie.
#4 – Hugh Jackman
Hugh Jackman has been a fan-favorite choice to play the Solid Snake and if you have seen his movie then you know why. Hugh Jackman not only has the looks but he also got the acting chops to pull it off if his recent movies are any indication.
When Kojima was still working on Metal Gear franchise, the chances of Hugh Jackman playing the Solid Snake were none as Kojima wanted a young actor. With Kojima parting his ways with Konami we might get to see High Jackman play the badass Solid Snake in the Metal Gear Solid movie.
#3 – Christan Bale
Christan Bale is one of the best actors of this generation and there was a time when rumors were running wild that he is attached to the movie to play Solid Snake in the live action adaptation of the Metal Gear solid franchise but the movie itself went into limbo.
Christan Bale embodies the features that are required for such a role as he is rugged and if you have seen some of his movies, he can also pull off the aggressive look. He would be a perfect actor to play this role if he does not do his Batman voice ever again.
#2 – Josh Holloway
Josh Holloway is known for his role in the TV show ‘Lost’ but he has proved that he is more than capable of taking on the role of Solid Snake. He might have a robust career in movies but Solid Snake could be the role that might get him back on the map.
Josh Holloway has the looks and acting skills required to play the role and that is why he should be considered to play the role of Solid Snake in the movie.
#1 – Michael Fassbender
Michael Fassbender has already starred in the Assassin’s Creed movie and while the movie did not get much love but we are talking about the actor. While Michael Fassbender lack the physical resemblance with the Solid Snake but his acting skills are more then enough required for this job.
If you are a fan of Michael Fassbender than you know that he can bring class and sophistication to his roles with finesse.
So those were the five actors who should play Solid Snake in the Metal Gear Solid movie.
Do you have anyone in mind who can play the role? Let us know in the comments.
