The rumor on the net is that Black Ops 2’s “Harper” is voiced by non other than Michael Rooker. The same guy who voiced a survivor in the original Black Ops Zombies DLC “Call of the Dead”.

Michael Rooker currently stars as Merle Dixon in the AMC television series The Walking Dead. You may also remember him from other films such as Cliffhanger, Days of Thunder, Tombstone, Jumper to name a few.

It should also be noted that he’s listed as the voice actor for “Harper” in and Wikipedia however the official voice cast has not been confirmed by Treyarch yet… He also looks like Harper’s long lost twin.

  • that has to be him, sounds just like him. I like that idea, Michael Rooker is now in the campaign. Maybe in zombies too!

  • Maverick

    Of course its him. I just read an article about Michael Ironside not being in Splinter Cell because the current motion capture tech is so good these days that it requires the voice actor and motion capture actor to be the same or the sync just comes out terrible. Its the same as they did in Black Ops.
