Watch More Jeff Goldblum In Call Of Duty: Black Ops 3


Alright, so we’re not the sorts to post every Call of Duty: Black Ops III [official site] trailer, but we are the sorts to post things with Jeff Goldblum in. We’ve known he’s going to be in Black Ops 3 since July, but now there’s a new trailer explaining the set up for why he, playing a magician, is going to be fighting alongside a boxer, an actress and a cop in its co-op Zombies campaign mode, Shadows of Evil. Watch it below.

For those who aren’t up to date, Zombies is a group of spin-off missions in Call of Duty that are more or less snazzy copies of Left 4 Dead . Much like Valve’s multiplayer co-op shooter, each scenario follows four characters as they watch the world descend into an orgy of brain-eating zombie terribleness.

Previous campaigns have included the stylings of Robert Picardo (the Doctor in Star Trek: Voyager) and John Malkovich (Being John Malkovich).

In addition to Mr. Goldblum, Shadows of Evil stars Heather Graham (Boogie Nights), Ron Perlman (Fallout), and Neal McDonough (Band of Brothers). Along with Star Citizen, it seems a week for celebrity casts.

The Shadows of Evil trailer shows a non-descript American town ripped straight from old crime films. And even before the zombies make their ghastly appearance, each of the main characters is wrapped up in their own murderous, blackmail-y plot.

When the undead ghoulies enter the picture a mysterious voice claims to have woven their fates together for a greater purpose — fighting a greater evil than themselves. It’s as valid a contrivance as any other to bring four otherwise unconnected folks to decapitate, dismember, and disembowel legions of the living dead, but honestly if you’re playing zombies for the plot, you’re probably missing the point.

Then again, this one has Jeff Goldblum and he’s too infectiously charismatic for his own good.

    Dammit I hope this doesn’t result in me buying a Call of Duty game. I won’t know who I am anymore.

    Curse you and your charm, Jeff Goldblum, curse you!

      Just look on amazon or other online retailers and buy every film that Jeff Goldblum has been in. When they drop through your letterbox, go out to your local chip shop and buy some….cod and chips. A fun night is guaranteed* It should work out cheaper than buying 3blops too.

      *Buy a bottle of Johnnie Walker for absolute fun. Think of it as dlc for your filmfest.

    “- Death…uh…finds a way.”

    Sounds like a fitting catchphrase.

      Good point. I’ve adjusted the story to change its focus from “Jeff Goldblum!” to “Watch more Jeff Goldblum!”

    I wonder how people only identify Jeff Goldblum with the Jurassic Park movies. I mean, the man has been in quite a few pop culture defining moments… Wait, have you kids watched The Fly?

  5. Bull0 says:

    I’m as excited about this as anyone but we’ve known about it for ages, he was in the first trailer. Should be good fun, everybody loves a bit of Goldblum.

    Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men? The Shadow knows!

    What i find more interesting about CODBLOPS3 is that apparently, the singleplayer will start with all levels unlocked from the start. So you can play them in any order you wish, skipping any you want.
    This seems like something more single-player games should do (never thought i’d say that about a COD game…)

    Jeff Goldblum makes even American late night talk shows entertaining.

      You saw what others had designed and then you took the next step… You didn’t develop the genre yourself so you don’t take any responsibility… for it. And before you even knew it you had… you-you trademarked it and packaged it and slapped it on a plastic DVD-box and now you’re selling it- you’re gonna sell it! Well-
