Activision Announces Voice Talent for Call of Duty: Black Ops
Voice talent has become a huge part of video games. Some actors have made entire careers out of nothing else. Others make voice acting a huge part of their resume, and some even seek out parts in games they find interesting.
The Call of Duty series is obviously one of the biggest series of all time, and it’s garnered some nice voice talent in the past. Accordingly, it draws some major voice talent. Activision has rolled out a list of some of the voice actors for Call of Duty: Black Ops, and it’s impressive.
Gary Oldman, who voiced Russian soldier Viktor Reznov, will be returning for Black Ops. Also joining the cast is heralded actor Ed Harris, who will provide the voice for one of the main characters, CIA agent Jason Hudson.
What’s even more interesting is this: they’ve hired David Goyer to “provide script consultation and story development support.” On the off chance you’ve never heard of Goyer, let me explain why this is such a big deal. He wrote the script for a little movie you may have heard of called The Dark Knight, which grossed over a billion dollars.
I have to admit, from what I saw at E3, and what I’ve seen since, it looks like Treyarch is going all out to make Black Ops a fitting member of the Call of Duty family. We’ll find out for sure when the game releases November 9 on Nintendo DS, PC, PlayStation 3, Wii, and XBox 360.
