“The Numbers Mason, what do they Mean!” Remember these lines? We certainly do. Any CoD Veteran worth their salt can repeat at least half of many such iconic lines, the Black Ops series started us off with.
The history of Call of Duty games is rife with iconic characters ranging from campaign to campaign. Back in 2010, Treyarch and Activision brought one more to our tables: Alex Mason. And he’s back with Cold War, let’s take a look at what we know.

Who’s voicing Alex Mason in Black Ops Cold War?
Back when Alex Mason was first introduced, he was voiced by Sam Worthington. However, it doesn’t seem that we’ll be seeing Worthington play out Mason in Black Ops. However, veteran CoD fans like us will have the chance to instead experience the exceptional talent of Chris Payne Gilbert (pictured above).
We’ve seen some of Gilbert’s work through some stellar roles in Lucifer, Dexter and Criminal Minds. Now, he’s with the cast of Black Ops Cold War, as he’ll bring to life the story that we know wasn’t entirely over. Finally, our tribe of CoD fans and die-hard gamers will know why Mason’s back with Woods, Hudson and what mission lies next for them to complete!
