Kevin Spacey is stretching his bad-boy persona from politics and Netflix to terrorism and video games.
Spacey’s recent portrayal of ruthless politician Frank Underwood from Netflix’s “House of Cards” has a penchant for unwinding from a busy day of burying his opponents (literally, in some cases) by doing the same on “Call of Duty.” Now the real-life Spacey gets to be the bad guy of the game itself.
The first trailer for the game, subtitled “Advanced Warfare,” was posted online last night after leaking ahead of its planned release, and features an impressively rendered Spacey as the evil head of a private military corporation gone rogue and attacking the U.S.
“Democracy? Democracy’s not what these people need — hell, it’s not even what they want,” Spacey’s character says, echoing the sarcasm and disdain for U.S. government his other alter-ego has become infamous for. “America’s been trying to install democracy in nations for a century, and it hasn’t worked one time.”
“Power determines who is right,” Spacey says in another Instagram teaser trailer. “I have the power, so I’m right.”
The latest edition to the “Call of Duty” series is under development by Sledgehammer Games and will be published by Activision. The game is slated for released on Nov. 4, 2014.
