If you were lucky enough to catch Conan on TBS this past Tuesday, then you got to witness acting legend Gary Oldman showing off his acting chops by doing “battle chatter” as Call of Duty: Black Ops’ Viktor Reznov (a role he’s become quite famous for) — in a bow tie no less. Oldman was on the show promoting his upcoming film Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, but took some time to explain how video game voice acting works for the non-educated. The results are pretty damn hilarious.
