Mr. Ironside is no longer Sam Fisher

Cult character actor Michael Ironside has a long list of worthy accomplishments. He played the brain-bursting telepath in Scanners, the jingoistic one-armed military commander in Starship Troopers, and the victim of the immortal line "See you at the party, Richter!" in Total Recall. (And, no big deal, he was Jester in Top Gun.) And for the last decade, Ironside has also been voicing stealth superagent Sam Fisher in Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell series. That’s all about to change. In the just-announced sequel Splinter Cell Blacklist, Sam Fisher will be played - that is, voice-acted and performance-captured - by Eric Johnson, star of Rookie Blue and the Flash Gordon remake.
In a new video obtained by EW, Ironside talks bluntly about his early approach to the role - he notes, with tough love, that he found the original character "very shallow." But he also praises the development of the character and offers some praise for Johnson’s performance. The video also looks behind the scenes at the game’s performance-capture stages. Thrill to the sight of grown-ups putting on high-tech bodysuits and pretending to hold guns in each other’s faces! Acting is fun.
