David Hayter's IMDb Says He's in Metal Gear Solid 5

I recently predicted that David Hayter would continue voicing Solid Snake in the MGS series. A recent addition to his IMDb page says I may have actually been right.

You all called me crazy when I wrote an article theorizing David Hayter's inevitable inclusion in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, but his IMDb page would say otherwise.

Earlier this month Hideo Kojima officially revealed that renowned anti-terrorism agent, Jack Bauer (A.K.A Kiefer Sutherland) will be taking over the roll of the newly named Punished Snake (more seriously A.K.A Big Boss). Shortly after this I predicted that David Hayter would be reprising his roll as a young Solid Snake, while Kojima Productions attempts to separate Big Boss from Snake from both a thematic and vocal standpoint.

**Don't look at me like that just because I figured it out (maybe).**

While the theory is somewhat out there, David Hayter's IMDb is now showing that Hayter will be doing the voice of "David." This is not only the actor's name, but Solid Snake's real-person name. I've reached out to Hayter via twitter to see if this holds any water, so if he gets back to me I'll update the page.

So who's crazy now? Sound off in the comments down below and maybe I'll share my special tin foil hat with you next time the government tries to assassinate your originality via satellite (which is always)!

    I feel your pain my friend, as a die-hard MGS fan (I even have a machinima production that solely concentrates on Metal Gear machinima) Just google or youtube CpmStudios and you'll see :) been running for over 7 years.

    MGSV will be epic and whether Keifer and David work together or not, it will be the most amazing game ever.

    I have the utmost faith in Kojima's judgement. He has never disappointed me.

    I often cite MGS as the reason I love games. If I hadn't played MGS 2 when I did I don't know if I would be as passionate about them as I am now.

    Even with that trust my soul was a little bruised when Hayter said he wouldn't be Big Boss. But if my theory continues to hold I think it'll turn out to be a phenomenal idea.

    Dude, I'm in the same boat! MGS FOR LIFE! I dont care what they do, I just want to play MGS as long as it's made by Kojima/Konami.

    It would be awesome
    but solid snake will be only 12 years old in this game, correct? How can a 12 year old boy's voice be played by David Hayter?

    Yeah the math isn't quite right in that department unless they factor in the rapid aging thing way earlier, which would mess with canon.

    The best explanation for me is that we don't know how many years pass within the game. Snake could just as easily be 18 or 19 by the time the main story is done, which is what I'm assuming. I don't think this is going to be a big role, probably something similar to Big Boss' visit in MGS4.

    I'm aware. But I wouldn't be a real MGS fan if I didn't get excited, then take it too far, then be either tremendously disappointed or overly psyched at the outcome.
