Worst problem is that the voice IS Ironside. Finally watched Terminator Salvation on cable and it's almost painful to see his acting career cause I know him as Sam Fisher.

He'll always be Jester to me!

And anyways, nothing will ever top Mark Wahlberg as Max Payne as the worst casting decision in the history of creation.

I think Tom Hardy can pull it off. The once-addicted-to-cocaine actor has surprised me a few times now.

IMO, he'll need to slim up a bit. Or they could just use his doppelganger: Logan Marshall-Green.

Also, I like how Blue made a Bane reference.

Ever since the first Splinter Cell I thought George Clooney would be the obvious choice to play Sam Fisher in a movie, and if not Clooney then at least the voice actor for Sam Fisher, Michael Ironside.

Did you ever see George Clooney as Batman? He couldn't pull that off so why would you think he could do Fisher?

I'm guessing you are an older lady? No man would ever like George Clooney... in or as anything... ever.

Speak for yourself. He's not the best but he's far from the worst.

EDIT: Oh, and I primarily make this comment because of From Dusk Till Dawn.

Then again Splinter Cell is nothing like it used to be, last good one was Chaos Theory, after that it turned into garbage. Hell the new one "Blacklist" doesn't even seem have Michael Ironside as the voice actor anymore, the new one is 30 years younger.

I guess that falls in line with it the blow shit up and smash things game it's become rather than something unique that stands out from the lowest denominator drivel so many formerly good franchises are being turned into.
