Viral Video of the Day: Kevin Spacey Heeds the ‘Call of Duty’

Award-winning actor makes his video game debut.

Kevin Spacey’s next starring role won’t be at a theatre near you or even streaming on your TV, but on your Xbox. The two-time Oscar winner is the villain in the next installment of the Call of Duty video game series.


In Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, Spacey eschews the Southern accent of his House of Cards character Frank Underwood, but not his power-mad rhetoric. “People don’t want freedom,” Spacey’s digital counterpart says in the trailer. “They want boundaries, rules, protection from invaders and themselves…. And that’s where I come in.”


Leaked screenshots of Spacey’s game character surfaced this morning, prompting the official Call of Duty website moved up the trailer’s unveiling from Sunday to today.


The game is due in stores this November. No word yet if any missions will feature Spacey’s character pushing bloggers in front of oncoming subway trains.
