At the Indy PopCon 2015 last week, Troy Baker explained why you should “reserve judgement” on 24‘s Kiefer Sutherland’s performance in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain until you’ve actually played the game.
Baker said that Sutherland, who will be playing Snake, “knocked it out of the freaking park,” saying that he came in, “rolled up his sleeves and got dirty on this game.”
To his credit, Kiefer Sutherland knocked it out of the freaking park, and he came in and he put the work in. I love David Hayter, I love David, he’s a good dude and he’s Snake, but so is Kiefer. And that guy showed up, rolled up his sleeves and got dirty on this game. So reserve judgement until you play it. You only have like two more months left and trust me it’ll be worth it.
Baker will be playing the role of Ocelot in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, which releases on September 1 for PlayStation 4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC.
