He's is also a screen writer.... 


he wrote the screenplay for X-men and X-2 among a few others...

He's done quite a bit of work that he isn't credited for that pays the bills as well.... its not like he's broke... he is married to a successul woman as well.

A lot of these voice acting jobs are non-union, which means he has to use an assumed name. A lot of times get what's known as "scale". Work in commericials can pay up to $10,000 for a national spot. You'd have to get  A LOT of work to make any real money.

 

Here's the thing; you can build a much bigger, prestigous, and lucrative career directing than you can doing voice over work. Writing also can lead you to more opprotunities. Before Joss Whedon directed the Avengers, he was a writing on the sitcom Roseanne. 

 

Voice over work can only take you so far. Sometimes you have to pass up one job so you can work something that you can build your career on.


So, this is the only part I completely got lost on...the rest makes sense. What in the world are you talking about?


The biggest actors union is known as SAG (Screen Actors Guild). If you're a member of SAG you're name is registered with them, and the union has certain conditions your employer has to meet with regards to pay. If you take a non-union job, you can't use the name you've registered with SAG, you have to use an assumed name. If you use your registered name or real name, you can actually be blacklisted from any future work by the union. David Hayter's name for non-union work is Sean Barker. For the first game, the actor who played Liquid Snake was Cam Clarke, although he was billed under his non-union name James Flinders (he's used that name for work in animation going all the way back to the 80's series Robotech).

 

Kotaku did a piece about voice over work, and revealed the actors aren't paid very well for games that make into the hundreds of millions of dollars.

Absolutely right

What is it with great stealth games getting rid of the voice actors of their main characters? First Michael Ironside doesn't return as Sam Fisher in Splinter Cell: Blacklist. David Bateson almost didn't return as Agent 47 in Hitman: Absolution. Now David Hayter isn't the voice of Snake anymore.


They're actors. They can take other jobs if they want to. A lot of other voice work might pay better than video games.


You're obviously not aware with what transpired. Michael Ironside was axed because he couldn't meet the physical reuirements for the mocap (that was Ubisoft's excuse anyway). IO Interactive disrespected David Bateson by making him audition for the role of Agent 47 despite being his voice since 2000. Then IO Interactive cut all contact with Bateson and went with another voice actor until the huge backlash from fans made them bring him back. I don't know what the situation is with David Hayter because I don't really play Metal Gear Solid games.

If the voice of Big Boss is Doyle, that makes sense to keep the continuity of MGS4. Also, I have a theory that a young Solid Snake may make an appearance at the very end of the game. There would be some kind of encounter that would bridge the gap between MGSV and the first Metal Gear, completing the series... for now.

^This encounter with Solid Snake is where Hayter would come in, if I didn't make that clear.

Dear mods, 

 

Why do you think we want these **bleep** in our board? Let them stay where they are native from.

 

Sincerely,

Everyone ever.
