Rep: Ironside not out of Splinter Cell: Conviction

Aside from David Hayter and Charles Martinet, we can't really think of a voice-over actor more closely tied to his video game alter-ego than Michael Ironside and Splinter Cell's Sam Fisher. So it brought us no small amount of consternation to hear rumors that not only may Ironside be out for Splinter Cell: Conviction but (even worse) that the cause was prima donna behavior.

Thankfully, the Fisherists were there to ease our fears, tracking down Ironside's manager David Ginsberg who said "The truth is that Ubisoft is still working on the script/game and that there has been no conversations about Michael as of yet, casting may not even begin until later this year." He also (shockingly) went on to say that Ironsides is a real prince of a guy, ask anybody. So, for now at least, our hope for an appropriately gruff Sam lives on.
