My fellow TF2 fans on FJ, gather your hats and hear me;   
   
There's been a rumor going around that the soldier's voice actor, Rick May, has recently acquired throat cancer. Valve got him back to do his lines for the soldier in Valve's recent project, "Expiration Date".    
   
However, due to his situation he could not scream during some sequences, so they had to hire another voice actor, Nolan North, known for his voice as Desmond Miles in Assassin's Creed (ugh, 						****					 that guy), Nathan Drake in Uncharted and Deadpool in the Deadpool-game, to impersonate his voice and do his screaming sequence for him.    
   
North's voice was also a replacement for the Engineer in Expiration Date (Kudos to him for that, he did an excellent job, I honestly couldn't tell the difference) and it's not known if he is going to stay as the permanent voice for the engineer or not.   
   
However, the unique and special voice for the soldier is going to be extremely hard to replace. If this rumor is real, which I really hope it isn't, I think we should all give our best wishes to Rick May for doing an outstanding job as one of TF2's most iconic and funny characters.   
   
If you want to hear Nolan as the Soldier, here's a link to expiration date;

His line is at 12:24. (Sorry Nolan, you're a fantastic voice actor, but Nathan Drake won't cut it as the Soldier).    
   
Here's a link to the community forums. You can read all we know about May's situation here. Let's just all hope that the rumor isn't true;
