In recent years, the Call of Duty franchise has become hooked on Hollywood celebs. Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare featured Kevin Spacey, Black Ops III had Christopher Meloni and Katee Sackhoff, and Infinite Warfare brought in Kit Harington.
And that’s to say nothing of the Zombies modes, which focus on cult figures like John Malkovich, Bill Paxton, Bruce Campbell, Kevin Smith, and Foxy Brown herself, Pam Grier. Has Quentin Tarantino been secretly directing Call of Duty games for the past few years?
Call of Duty: WWII will be taking a more back-to-basics approach, it likely won’t even have a Zombies mode, so will the recognizable names be returning? Well, it seems like at least one fairly major Hollywood actor will be lending his voice and likeness to the latest CoD.
As we recently reported, Activision let a few low-res Call of Duty: WWII screenshots slip out, and fans think a character featured in one of the images looks rather familiar. Specifically, they think the guy front-and-center in the image below looks a lot like Transformers and Battle Creek star, Josh Duhamel. I didn't notice it at first, but there's definitely a resemblance...
Not convinced? Well, Duhamel recently posted this image of himself in motion-capture gear. He doesn’t specify that he’s doing the work for Call of Duty, but it would make sense.
One of my better fashion choices. pic.twitter.com/zKnOqAzSs2— Josh Duhamel (@joshduhamel) March 17, 2017
Need more proof? Well, Duhamel’s most recent Twitter follow is the official Call of Duty account.
Still not sold? Yeesh, you people are hard to please. Duhamel has a history with Activision, voicing a character in Skylanders: SuperChargers in 2015. Looking beyond pure evidence, Duhamel would simply be a good choice for Call of Duty: WWII. He’s got those rugged all-American good looks and knows how to act, but he also isn’t so famous or distinctive that he’d be a distraction or come off as stunt casting.
Call of Duty: WWII will be revealed in full on April 26 (Wednesday) at noon central. The game launches November 3 on PC, Xbox One, and PS4.
