At Comic-Con today, Treyarch and Activision officially revealed the star-studded cast for Call of Duty: Black Ops 3’s Zombies mode.

Shadows of Evil introduces four unwitting characters – The Magician, The Femme-Fatale, The Cop and The Boxer – into an unraveling experience masterminded by the mysterious Shadow Man. Featuring voices and likenesses, the characters are played by Jeff Goldblum (Jurassic Park, Independence Day), Heather Graham (The Hangover 1-3, Californication), Neal McDonough (Captain America: The First Avenger, Band of Brothers), Ron Perlman (Sons of Anarchy, Hellboy) and Robert Picardo (Star Trek: Voyager, Stargate SG-1).

The cast stars in the new Shadows of Evil map for the Zombies mode. Here’s the names and descriptions of each members of the cast.

Femme Fatal, played by Heather Graham:

She belongs in motion pictures, but instead works as a burlesque dancer at the city’s most ”upscale” nightclub – where she inevitably attracts the attention of many powerful men, manipulating their weaknesses and desires for her own ends.

The Magician, played by Jeff Goldblum

Born into enormous wealth, the magician grew up surrounded by lackeys and sycophants… and a lifetime of constant praise and attention has only fueled his deeply misplaced arrogance.

The Cop, played by Neal McDonough

After years of taking mob bribes and framing innocent men, the cop is a likely suspect in a department wide corruption investigation… The timing of which couldn’t be worse.

The Boxer, played by Ron Perlman

Besides removing the padding from his gloves, the boxer wore a pair of brass knuckles hidden beneath his hand wraps – he wasn’t just looking to win, he was looking to cause damage.

The Shadow Man, played by Robert Picardo:

He’s referred to as the narrator of the new Zombies mode.

    Does anyone know what’s the song playing in the trailer?

    • k5berry

      Not sure but you could maybe search up some of the lyrics of the song, like “snakeskin boots on a saturday night.”

    • I’ve forgotten.. again!

      Now that pic just makes me wonder why we didn’t get the Hoff.

    • life… finds a way.

  • Will WilFredo Mendoza

    I like how CI leaves out the other cast like Nolan North (Richtofen) out yet on 3ARCS Fbook theyre all there.

    • Keshav Bhat

      This is the new cast for Shadows of Evil. The old cast is for The Giant map.

      • PandaMan

        Keshav do we know if The Giant will be available only for the Collector’s edition?

        • Keshav Bhat

          As of right now, it is only available by purchasing one of the Collector’s Editions. I am not sure what may happen after launch.

          • CoDforever

            they will pull of a nuketown zombies and make it $5 in december

            the fact that the entire contents of the hardened edition is only $10 more than the base game is proof

          • Kyle Soule

            More than likely that’s what they will do.


    I just want the giant trailer and the limited edition prices.

    • JDahn

      The Juggernog edition costs $200 and the Hardened costs $80!
      I want the Giant trailer too :/

      • Siftblade of Rivia

        Add $20 and you get the season pass (Digital Deluxe).

        • Yankeephil

          I’m actually hoping they’ll keep both story lines going and meet up in the finale. Imagine if they had one remake included with each DLC pack

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            Well they did say this story will tie up all loose ends and connect all the maps.

          • MichiganerE

            Can you give me a link to where Treyarch said this? I’m curious.

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            It was during the livestream. They said everything will link together, and things that didn’t connect before now will.

          • MichiganerE


          • RdJokr

            How convenient that they left out “and create even more loose ends to fuck with us”. Because that’s what Treyarch will do.

            I thought I understood Origins. Until I saw this. Now I don’t know what to think.

          • MichiganerE

            Agreed. I’m just going with the time-travel and multiverse theory.

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            I believe they said this is a sequel to MOTD, and The Giant is a sequel to Origins.

          • Will WilFredo Mendoza
  • Maximiliano Martinez

    I’m getting the Hardened Digital Edition cause i REALLY want THE GIANT map!

    • Kyle Soule

      Cant wait to play that map 🙂

  • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

    Well, this Hardened Edition is disappointing. Black Ops 1 had all 4 Classic Zombies maps.

    • Yankeephil

      But BO2 only had Nuketown Zombies

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        Then that was disappointing, too.

      • they put alot of ”work” into TranZit. Even though it’s shit, it was pretty large compared to other maps

    • RdJokr

      Because all they had to do was port the maps from WaW over to BO1. The Giant isn’t just a Der Riese port, it’s a remake with brand new story.

      • Siftblade of Rivia

        New easter egg too.

        • RdJokr

          Well, that is part of the “brand new story” I was talking about.

          Speaking of easter egg, I want a remix of Beauty of Annihilation for this map.

          • Daniel

            The layout is the same

          • RdJokr

            Really? You’ve seen the map? Have you played it?

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Why would they change it?

          • RdJokr

            I don’t know. They could add in new areas beyond the original map. They could add new features (which is most likely going to happen). At the end of the day, it’s not a damn port.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            It might as well be, or people will get pissed off.

            On second thought, overall the shit.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]


      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        Then why not port the others, then, if it’s so easy?

        • Joshwoocool

          you also have to update graphics and stuff.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Treyarch took mere months to update the graphics for the maps. It wouldn’t take long.

        • RdJokr

          Did I say it was easy? No, I didn’t. The amount of work porting the WaW maps to BO1, compared to remaking Der Riese as The Giant for BO3, was only considerably easier, because they only had to slightly change some gameplay elements to fit BO1 (Cold War guns instead of WW2 guns in Mystery Box, Quick Revive tweaked for solo mode, etc…). Plus, from WaW to BO1, there wasn’t a huge leap of graphics, so aesthetically, WaW maps don’t need to be touched up to look any fancier than they already did in the original game.

          With The Giant, there’s still a significant amount of work needed to polish the graphical assets of the old Der Riese map to make it look next-gen. Now tell me, do you honestly think Treyarch has enough time to do that to all the old maps?

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            With 3 years of development on maps they made twice? It’s doable. And the ports actually looked like they were easy to make. It’s just reskinning and adding weapons from the other modes.

          • RdJokr

            Again, you still don’t get the point.

            Porting means you do very little work to change the original content, even graphical assets. If you port a BO1 map over to BO3 now, it would look atrocious compared to the rest of the game. You have to spend time redoing the assets to make sure it looks good and fits well within the game. That’s why developers don’t just go off and remake 3-4 maps in a row, they do it one at a time.

            And also to give people less reason to say they copy-paste their games.


          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            They can make the games modern within 3 years. Developers do collections in 1-2.

  • QuickzZ-_-GhosT

    If the writing is good and convincing, I m ok with this cast. But if it s anything like AW’s I m gonna be upset.Seriously man, I m 15 and I could ve written something better.

  • Yankeephil Unboxing of Juggernog Edition in less than an hour

  • Daniel

    Looks bad in some ways, good in others.
    I hope this map has a beginning/middle/end
    They fight monsters in this shit too? That sucks
    Give me the giant and piss off
    No one is better than Dempsey

  • TheGreatnessWithin

    People I just got informed that the panel said there were several easter eggs that we still did not find yet sooo…. while we wait for bo3 we as a community need to find these eggs

    • Yankeephil

      There have been rumors of more EE since WaW, just like the ammo-matic perk machine in Der Reise, that no one has ever found

  • Yankeephil

    The biggest question is what are fans going to play first, the new map or Der Riese or beat the campaign for a possible third map

    • Siftblade of Rivia

      New map, then The Giant, then campaign. I already know what MP will be like due to the beta so no rush.

      • Yankeephil

        But there is most likely another zombie map unlocked after the campaign, they’ve done that 2/3 times since WaW. And a credible source that leaked a lot of reliable info has said that there’ll be 3-4 maps at launch

        • Bigi345


          • Yankeephil

            It was on reddit, long sensation posted the links, and his source has proved reliable in the past and a lot of the other info came true. Except for him saying 3-4 maps which leads me to believe there will be another one after the campaign.

        • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

          I love how we all wanted an AW beta last year, now nobody gives a shit.

    • Daniel

      I will only play the giant, SoE looks crappy

      • Yankeephil

        It looks awesome, and it appears to have a throwing knife similar to the hell’s retriever from MOTD

        • Yankeephil

          After watching the trailer in slow mo it actual appears there may be 4 swords similar to the staffs and each has a special power

      • Agreed, definatly playing The Giant far more that SoE.

  • RdJokr

    Might wanna add the characters’ actual names to that too, Keshav. You guys did post a picture showing that on Twitter.

  • Daniel

    I just care about the giant map

  • zombiefreak935

    Activision charges $2500 per soda from the jugg machine.

    • FazalGaming

      No!!! It’s $2500 for just the can. It’s an extra $500 for the Soda DLC

  • Neal McDonough is from Band of Brothers! I’m so happy he’ll be a playable character!

  • Kill Denied
    • Yankeephil

      By now, everyone has seen this version, we want a full trailer in HD. Not a cellphone video

    • wexterz

      h o l y s h i t

  • wexterz

    Have my money Treyarch, just have it..

  • melchor2679

    Not much of a zombies fan, only care about multi-player and campaign mode.

  • spartanelite
    Its the cut scene for der ries or the giant it has spoiler’s to the story so just a heads up

  • Spread it around everyone, leaked trailer for the giant.
