Call of Duty: Black Ops Multiplayer Reveal Hands-On

Important Hollywood actors Ed Harris and Gary Oldman will lend their vocal talents to Activision's Call of Duty: Black Ops, the company announced this morning. Oldman will be revisiting the role of  Russian Red Army squad leader Viktor Reznov from Call of Duty: World at War, and Harris is playing CIA operative Jason Hudson, one of the game's main characters.

Another Hollywood pro onboard for Black Ops: David S. Goyer, writer of The Dark Knight  and Batman Begins, is providing script consultation.

"Their contributions have helped us to push the boundaries of our story telling and character development far beyond anything we have ever attempted before in the franchise," said Treyarch head Mark Lamia in a statement.

Press release hyperbole aside, there is no doubt that Oldman and Harris will give quality voice to their characters -- both have extensive credits of high profile, Oscar-nominated films under their belts -- but I'm curious about this: Do you care? If the main characters in the game were voiced by competent but unknown voice-over artists, would it matter to you? Let us know in our comment section!
