Oldman, Harris confirmed for Call of Duty: Black Ops
World at War favourite and History of Violence star confirmed for Treyarch's shooter; Dark Knight scribe David S. Goyer helping with script and story.
True Crime, Spyro the Dragon, and Call of Duty: Black Ops all have one thing in common: Gary Oldman. Activision confirmed today that the Hollywood star, best known for his roles in Leon, True Romance and The Dark Knight would be returning to the Call of Duty franchise after voicing Viktor Reznov in Treyarch's previous entry, World at War.
The megapublisher also confirmed that Ed Harris, known for his roles in such movies as The Right Stuff, The Rock, and National Treasure: Book of Secrets, as well as more substantive fare such as A History of Violence and A Beautiful Mind, would be voicing CIA operative Jason Hudson, one of the game’s main characters. Activision also said that support for the script and story scribes would be provided by FlashForward cocreator and comic book writer David S. Goyer. Goyer also wrote the scripts for critically acclaimed Batman reboot Batman Begins and the story for its sequel The Dark Knight.
Oldman is no stranger to video game projects, having first worked on Medal of Honor: Allied Assault in 2003. Since then, he has leant his voice to True Crime: Streets of LA and three separate Spyro The Dragon titles. Goyer contributed to the story of the Batman Begins game, while Black Ops is Harris' first game project.
Call of Duty: Black Ops is due out worldwide on November 9 and has not yet been officially rated by the ESRB or the BBFC.
