Kiefer Sutherland hints at upcoming Mortal Kombat role

All is quiet from NetherRealm Studios in regards to the next Mortal Kombat, but we can apparently add actor Kiefer Sutherland to the next game's voice cast, if a recent interview is any indication.

The next Mortal Kombat game was originally planned for sometime in 2013. But even though that train has clearly left the station, that doesn't mean the game isn't still in development. In fact, we can likely add a new voice to the game's cast: 24 frontman Kiefer Sutherland.

When discussing his upcoming involvement in Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain to IGN, the actor offhandedly remarked, "I did Mortal Kombat, and that's such a huge game, but it's so not like [MGS5]."

Of course, considering the context of the remark, Sutherland didn't point to which role he would play in the next game. Series creator NetherRealm Studios has issued no comment.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

      What if Jack Bauer is a DLC chracter in MK10? Would his weapon of choice be a hacksaw or an HK USP?

        What if Kiefer Sutherland is a DLC character in MK10? Would his weapon of choice be 'a bottle of scotch' and an automobile?

          He could headbutt his opponents I guess and then go to rehab.

            I think the 'going to rehab' would be the finishing move of any opponent against him.

        His friendship move would have to be a tranquilizer.

          I would've thought it would be something more like he surrenders his keys to opponent then proceeds to drink responsibly.
