Tat Wood accuses this of being [[TorchTheFranchiseAndRun the point where Holmes starts to believe his own reputation]], but I think nothing could be further from the truth. This is the point where Holmes loses patience with being put on a pedestal.

->''"It's hardly a "hidden" reason considering how vocal Kojima was about it, but [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid4GunsOfThePatriots Old Snake]] is a reflection of Creator/HideoKojima himself. He's apathetic because Kojima is apathetic; he's tired because Kojima is tired; he gave up on his philosophical idealism because Kojima gave up on his philosophical idealism (in regards to the ''Franchise/MetalGear'' series at least). Every major characteristic of Old Snake can be traced back to Kojima's own feelings about the series and his fans. The fact that Snake wants to get it all over with so he can die in peace is exactly parallel to Kojima's desire to end the series so he can move on without restrictions...I can't help thinking this is why he allowed a total Westernization of the controls as well; [[FollowTheLeader just blend in]] and hope for the best."''

Although I do partially agree with him that ''Twilight'' was probably his most difficult acting role; Iím sure even the finest of Juilliard-trained actors would have had great difficulty acting like they werenít totally embarrassed to say shit like: ''[='=][[TastesLikeDiabetes No measure of time with you will be enough, but letís start with forever.]][='=]''"''
