*salute*

I think it's amazing how the hairstyle fits the voice actors. xD

I mean, Richard looks like old Big Boss, David looks like and Kiefer sort of looks like him from the front! :D

@Lucas3015 I've never played MGS, but the reason that Kiefer looks like Boss is because he motion/facial captured for him.

It isn't that Kiefer *happens* to look like Boss, it's that the original Japanese character designers & programmers were using his movements as a basis for the character.

Motion capture just works a lot better the closer the design is to the actual actor.


KZS in fact also mentioned that she really found Hayter's look, to resemble SNake himself, the way he walked in for his audition.

Unlike a lot of (like almost all) English dubs, she didn't really pay any attention to the original vocal characterizations, & I can imagine that Doyle & Hayter's appearances may have played a part in their casting.

- However, Kiefer's is the only case where the character design was based on HIM, & he was chosen by Kojima himself.
