** In the Latin American dub, Raul Menendez is voiced by Mexican actor and director Julio Bracho.
** [[spoiler: Jimmy Kimmel]] voices himself in the game's GoldenEnding.

* HeyItsThatVoice:
** Campaign
*** Creator/TonyTodd is Commander Briggs.
*** Alex Mason is still Jake Sully of {{Film/Avatar}}/[[Film/WrathoftheTitans Perseus]], if the InkSuitActor didn't give it away.

*** Michael Rooker ([[Series/TheWalkingDead Merle Dixon]]) is Mike Harper. He previously voiced himself in the Black Ops Zombies map "Call Of The Dead."
*** Creator/JenniferHale makes a short appearance as Anderson, a pilot who provides close air support in "Cordis Die". For bonus points, her character's first appearance is backed by music absurdly similar to the de facto ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'' (where she voiced female Commander Shepard) main theme, 'Suicide Mission' -- Jack Wall wrote the soundtracks for both games.
*** Creator/ClancyBrown is one of your commanders during the Strike Force missions. As is Creator/MichelleRodriguez.
*** Creator/RichardEpcar is one of the generic soldiers you sometimes hear on the radio.

*** The SDC announcer is voiced by Ron Yuan, also known as [[VideoGame/CommandAndConquerRedAlert3 Prince Tatsu]], [[VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas Tommy Torini]], [[VideoGame/SleepingDogs Sam "Dogeyes" Lin]] and [[VideoGame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic Sergeant Rusk]].
*** The FBI announcer is Creator/GlennMorshower, after having been in ''Call of Duty 4'' and ''Modern Warfare 2'' as Baseplate/Overlord.
** VideoGame/NaziZombies
*** Stephanie Lemelin ([[WesternAnimation/YoungJustice Artemis]]) is Misty Briarton in [=TranZit=]. Joining her are Creator/ScottMenville and Creator/KeithSzarabajka as Marlton Johnson and Russman.

*** Mike Harper is voiced by Creator/KentaMiyake.
*** Tommy Briggs is voiced by Creator/KenjiNomura.
*** Creator/TakayukiKondo is Salazar.

** Brazilian Portuguese dub:

* TheOtherDarrin: Hudson is voiced by Creator/MichaelKeaton instead of Ed Harris. It's very noticeable as the two sound nothing like each other. In ''Declassified'' Hudson is at least voiced by a voice actor trying to pull off a reasonable Ed Harris impersonation.
* PlayingAgainstType: Creator/TonyTodd as Briggs.
* TechnologyMarchesOn: Averted and played straight early in the campaign. We see Menendez posting a Website/YouTube video in [[TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture 2021]] with the black-and-white video layout that [=YouTube=] wouldn't release until a few days after the game released, but the YouTube video still has a top comments feature. Of course, with the rate at which YouTube changes its layouts, it's ''extremely'' unlikely that YouTube will look the same in 2021, if it's even still around by then.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: The E3 demo had Creator/LiamOBrien voice David Mason.
