Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War will bring back many of the series’ previous characters, including Alex Mason and Frank Woods–but the parts have been recast. Now, the actor behind Frank Woods in previous Black Ops games has opened up at his disappointment at the recasting.
In a lengthy video, Burns opens up about how it feels to see someone else playing his character. Although he’s diplomatic about the new actor (who has not been publicly named), he’s also clearly disappointed.
In an excerpt posted to Reddit (and picked up on by Eurogamer), Burns talks about how his previous performances, and his knowledge of the character’s backstory, would have informed his performance.
