We run through the actors best suited for the main roles of Kojima’s masterpiece turned Hollywood movie.
Kojima Productions announced last August that a movie of Metal Gear Solid was in production. We know Avi Arad is producing the film, but little else has been alighted on in terms of staff or cast. Considering the movie is set in Alaska, there’s a high chance it will (at least partially) follow the story of the first Metal Gear Solid game.
That’s a double-edged sword though as, whilst the plot to Kojima’s PS1 masterpiece was solid (no pun intended), what actors could represent such iconic characters as Revolver Ocelot, Otacon and the big hero himself? It’s, naturally, a subjective issue, but we’ve lined up a casting list all the same.

1. Jamie Foxx: The Darpa Chief
If anyone saw Tarantino's awesome Django Unchained, then you have every reason to trust the call of Jamie Foxx. He's a great actor who, even in the single titular role of Django was capable of showing off a diverse breadth of emotion. Don't even get me started on his depiction of Ray Charles in 2004's Ray. Magical.
