Developer Treyarchannounced today that Academy Award-winning actor Gary Oldman (Book of Eli, The Dark Knight) will reprise his role as Viktor Reznov in Call of Duty: Black Ops.For those who perhaps skippedWorld at War, Reznov was aNazi-slaughtering Sergeant who's missing the tip of his right index finder. Joining Oldman is Ed Harris (A History of Violence, The Abyss, Apollo 13), whowillvoice CIA operative Jason Hudson. Need more star power? David Goyer (The Dark Knight, Blade) will be overlooking the game's script to some degree. That's quite a talented trio to support the game's campaign mode, which itself backs up the robustmultiplayer offeringswe saw last week.

%26ldquo;Oldman, Harris and Goyer are considered some of Hollywood%26rsquo;s finest talents and they perfectly complement Call of Duty: Black Ops%26rsquo; ambitious and immersive single player experience,%26rdquo; Treyarch Studio Head Mark Lamia said. %26ldquo;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.%26rdquo;

Captain Price is Infinity Ward%26rsquo;s warrior of choice, and Reznov appears to be Treyarch%26rsquo;s go-to guy, so the inevitable question arises: who would win in a fight? Dare to speculate in the comments...
Girls, spy planes and shooting each other in the face
Looks like someone's learned from Infinity Ward's mistakes
