Call of Duty is no stranger to a celebrity or two, over the years we have seen dozens of A- listers extending their talents to the franchise. Over the last decade we have seen the likes of Idris Elba, Jason Statham, Gary Oldman, Timothy Olyphant, Ice Cube, Ed Harris, Kiefer Sutherland, Jeff Goldblum and Heather Graham lending their voices to the cast, and that's to name but a few.
It seems that there is no shortage of Hollywood talent looking to star in the latest Call of Duty. And, this year’s evolution, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is looking like business as usual. In fact this year’s offering may be the most star studded edition yet.
Celebrity faces in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare
It is not all about the on screen talent this year either, Hollywood director, Guy Ritchie will also be lending his talents to the production. Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is bringing one of the most bountiful selections of stars of stage and screen to this year’s adaptation, this will surely be a fantastic spectacle to behold.
Kit Harrington, otherwise known as Jon Snow from HBO's hit series, Game of Thrones takes on the role of Admiral Salen Kotch, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’s main antagonist.
A thrilling role that allows the actor to spread his evil, domineering wings. Narrative director, Taylor Kurosaki told Gamerant that Harrington ‘fully immersed himself into the role’.
Our story is about an epic showdown of opposing forces, and Kit immersed himself into the role and truly became the embodiment of the enemy, the Settlement Defense Front. We can’t wait for fans to see Kit play an entirely different kind of character.
McGregor sure has grown in popularity over the past few years. The UFC champion has now even extended his fighting skills to the video game world. McGregor plays bad guy Captain, Bradley Fillion, he will take on the role of Harrington’s right hand man, or muscle in this case.
The charismatic Irishman can be seen dropping a signature right hand onto some poor sap in the recently released story trailer. McGregor announced his role to his supporters by saying:
When the biggest need the baddest to do work, I answer the call.
Bloom takes on the role of the game's protagonist. Captain Nick Reyes steps up after an attack has left the ship's captain dead. Acting as the new captain, Reyes sets out to take the fight back to the enemy.
Bloom returns to the Call of Duty franchise after playing Yuri in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, he recently finished work on TMNT. Bloom is said to have made the most of the top of the range motion capture technology which is why the gameplay trailers look so slick.
