The Chicago Tribune has interviewed Kevin Gage, the voice actor behind the main villain in Ghosts, Gabriel Rorke.

Kevin Gage is the voice actor of Rorke, and Ghosts is the first game he has ever voice acted for. He’s been in many movies over the past decade.

Q: How did you approach the character of Gabriel Rorke?

A: I’m not a method actor, even in the movie things that I do. I obviously read the script. The scripts are very specific about how one should be acting or behaving in whatever situation. You’re either happy, sad, angry. You’re motivated by one thing or another. For me it really is all common sense. I don’t do a lot of heavy research or practicing. I go with my first instincts and usually they’re on the money. Thank God for directors, including (on) “Call of Duty.” They’d give me direction on where they would like this character to be. I think I got hired for the job because they heard that military cadence, so I really didn’t have to prep a whole lot. It’s easy for me to do that delivery. And when it comes to the evil thing, unfortunately I’ve smoked cigarettes for 40 years and that abusive habit has made it very easy for me to go down to that dark place.

Q: What are your thoughts on this new take on “Call of Duty” and the new story?

A: I haven’t read a script, but the idea of a small group of men that literally have to save the world is cool. This one’s a planetary experience with the whole space thing and it’s by far going to be one of the more exciting games than they’ve had in the past, which were as exciting as it got. I’ve seen some of the destruction in the trailers, which I think would be especially fun for local Southern California people who are so familiar with the terrain. I’m looking really forward to it. My boy, he cracks me up. He tells me that I should be practicing on “Black Ops 2” so when “Call of Duty: Ghosts” comes out I don’t have to listen to myself yell at myself.

    ”..the idea of a small group of men that literally have to save the world..” That right there, is every modern shooter’s campaign in a nutshell.

      No, Ghosts is not just 5 guys against the world, they have an army

      • Against the world?

        • Grigori

          Literally?

      • SoulTaker

        AND A DOG! 😀

  • Batman

    Small group of men……………….and their private army.

    Ghosts always go with an army of atleast 500 guys, LOL XD

  • Ryumoau

    great interview.

  • peehole

    Wow, the screenshot is from PS4?

    • Michael

      it looks realistic but also looks like an 80’s movie

      • Siftblade of Rivia

        I though that was a real life image, holy crap.

        • Tyrant Era

          it’s not part of ghosts so no it’s not ps4

      i totally agree but i wonder, will they? i mean, they keep IW on the COD project with jaws and claws when its obvious that they ruin the franchise with every one of their additions. i dunno, we need to make this a petition. IW is dead. time for SH Games or any other developer for that matter to take their place.

      • CoDforever

        I agree. Im not saying that Infinityward is a bad developer, but how great would it be if they worked on a completely new IP like Titanfall or destiny ? They would also have no restrictions from Activision (e. cod ghosts – 2 year deadline, has to retain “call of duty” formula etc )

        • TheShadowReaper

          or they could make SH games a standalone company and let them make their COD game from scratch. that way we would have 3 devs working on dis game, SH Games, IW and 3arc. each one releasing their game every year and with this setup each one of them would have nearly 3 years to develop, which means better content for us…i think. lol 🙂

    • SoulTaker

      Nope. I feel the game is great how. What they need to do is get another studio in on the making of COD. IW,Treyarch,Sledgehammer? with this each studio will have two FULL years to make the game which is great because they’ll add more stuff. Getting rid of them is not gonna help anyone because there’s some of us who love Treyarch and others love IW.

    • Mitch

      IW had to opportunity to leave CoD after MW3, but stayed. And when you see the ending of Ghosts, you can see what looks to be Ghosts 2, so they probably signed a contract to do 2 or 3 Ghosts games.

      • CoDforever

        they could continue the story in a book or something
