Interview With Coldwater Star James C. Burns AKA Call of Duty’s Sgt. Frank Woods | GIZORAMA

Mariah Beckman, GIZORAMA - "You may not know him by sight, but James C. Burns, the voice actor behind Black Ops‘ Sgt. Frank Woods, is a voice that’s hard not to recognize. Thanks to his skills, training, and rugged good looks, Burns was a perfect fit to play the flawed antagonist in Coldwater, by Flying Pig Productions. Burns plays a retired Marine colonel, Frank Reichert; a decorated serviceman, Reichert is the steely director of a secluded boot camp and reform school for troubled youth. Quarantined in the woods, Reichert and a team of heavy-handed, severe “counselors” at the camp use intimidation, starvation, isolation and brutality in order to break down and rebuild young offenders.

His role as a seasoned badass in the popular first person shooter Call of Duty: Black Ops and Black Ops II equipped Burns with the particular depth and sincerity that Coldwater needed for their empathetic, by-any-means-necessary reform school headmaster. GIZORAMA was fortunate enough to steal a few minutes with James Burns. We talked to him about Black Ops, Coldwater, tough choices, saving marriages, and zombies in ‘Nam, among other things." (Call of Duty: Black Ops, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Culture, James C. Burns)
