Getting a British actor (Hurray!) to play an American.

Out of 10 that this will work... 2/10.

the problem is theyre getting someone other than Michael Ironside to play Sam. no one else can be Sam Fisher.

As much as I love Michael Ironside, he's hardly got the look. If only...

Yes because no British actor in American tv or film pulls off being an America. Rick from the Walking Dead wasn't on Teachers on Channel 4 in 2001 and Christian Bale is certainly not an Englishman playing all American playboy Bruce Wayne.

i know, i know. i'm just still really bitter about the new game Blacklist having some other punk as Sam, because of some stupid disagreement between Ironside and Ubisoft.

I'm aiming at Tom himself not all British actors. His accent is very strong.

Someone fix this damn thing for me. I click post comment but nothing happens. All the damn time.

Hardy can hide his accent when he needs to. That's what he did in Warrior when he had to play an American former marine.

Never seen it. He didn't hide his accent in the Dark Knight Rises.

I don't think they really intended Bane to be American in that film..

Maybe they'll do a Bain treatment with Ironside's voice.

I'm pretty damn thrilled about this. It's been too long for a Splinter Cell movie to follow through. There was so many complications over the production company of the movie a couple years ago, this whole thing has been in progress for like 7 years.

A lot of it revolved around finding the right Fisher. Hardy has huge shoes to fill.

I'm a big Splinter Cell fan, and I think this could work. I have faith in Hardy's acting, even if his voice is a bit out of place. I would bet there is going to be an Ironside cameo, for sure. It also depends if they are going for the older, chiseled veteran, or the Conviction/Blacklist Fisher.

And as a side note, they may not be 100% using Sam Fisher. There are many Splinter Cells in Third Echelon (none of this Fourth bullshit).

Maybe Hardy is another SC agent working alongside Fisher, and you hear Ironsides voice through a radio all the time, then you see Ironside dressed as Sam at the very end where he meets up with Hardy and complete the last part of the mission together. It would be an awesome buildup and payoff.

Ubisoft revealed today that in their upcoming Splinter Cell flick, Sam Fisher will be played by Tom Hardy, whom most of you might remember as Bane in Dark Knight Rises.
Sounds pretty clear that Hardy is meant to be Sam Fisher. Ironside is in his 60s, dude's too old to play a working field agent.

Tom Hardy did pretty damn well at hiding his accent in Warriors indeed. I didn't realize he was English until I looked it up.
And if I'm not mistaken, didnt he also speak like an American in Black Hawk Down?
