Soap Voice Actor Hints at Call of Duty Movie
Scottish actor Kevin McKidd jokes that he was the second string pick after Gerard Butler.
A movie based on Call of Duty may be in the works, according to a story from the New York Post. Scottish actor Kevin McKidd, who voices Soap MacTavish, talked about his part in the game and some upcoming projects. "They were looking for a rough, Scottish actor in Hollywood, they probably couldn't get Gerard Butler, so they got the No. 2 Gerard Butler, me," he said. "I had no idea [Modern Warfare] would be so huge, and now there are talks of a feature film." Asked if he would like to play Soap himself, he joked, "if the script is good, and Gerard isn't available, then absolutely."
A Call of Duty movie seems like a no-brainer, seeing as the franchise is one of the most popular and recognized in the world. A movie would probably have to be based on the Modern Warfare series, and mention of Soap means it could include some familiar characters. This is the second voice actor leak in only one week, after the VA for Ghost mentioned a spin-off game.Source
