It’s true — Hollywood has fully exported its heroes to the newest media kid on the block, video games. It wasn’t enough for Martin Sheen to play the chain smoking Illusive Man in 2008’s Mass Effect 2 , or Kevin Spacey to turn in a star performance in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.
Now John Malkovich, Bill Paxton, Rose McGowan and Jon Bernthal lend their voices and likenesses to the sci-fi-tinged military shooter for the new Exo Zombie mode that comes with the new downloadable content pack “Havok,” available January 27.
Here, they’ve even made a video to show you.
Sure, McGowan (Charmed, Nip/Tuck) and Bernthal (The Walking Dead) are badasses, and Paxton (Big Love, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D) looks as sleepy as ever, but it’s Malcovich that steals this show, playing what looks like a janitor who’s just in the wrong corporate place at the wrong time.
“I fuckin’ hate the Atlas Corporation,” he says, giving this trailer its cathartic moment.
Activision’s first DLC for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, “Havok,” will release on January 27 for Xbox One, and February for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PC platforms. The price is slated to be $15 across all platforms.
