Gary "the bad guy out of Leon" Oldman reprises his role as Viktor Reznov from Call of Duty: World at War.

Ed "the bad guy out of The Rock" Harris plays one of the game's main characters, CIA operative Jason Hudson.

The duo are joined by Batman: Dark Knight and Batman Begins writer David S. Goyer, who's come on board to provide script consultation and story development support.

"Oldman, Harris and Goyer are considered some of Hollywood's finest talents and they perfectly complement Call of Duty: Black Ops' ambitious and immersive single player experience," said Treyarch studio head Mark Lamia.

"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."

Call of Duty: Black Ops is due out on 9th November. It'll probably be a big deal.
