He was voiced by H. Richard Greene.
He admits to Naked Snake that he planned Operation Snake Eater and implies that this was the reason why he ended up demoted as head of the CIA Latin America station.
Hot Coldman is depicted as a former director of the CIA. Because of bitterness over the demotion, Coldman plans to use the Peace Sentinels and the Peace Walker Project to regain his status as a power player in Washington. After his demotion and transferal to Central America, Coldman has Huey Emmerich develop several A.I. weapons - first and foremost the Peace Walker - while tasking Dr. Strangelove with developing the Peace Walker's A.I. Coldman intends to use the Peace Walker as a fail-safe nuclear deterence, since it is programmed to reply to any nuclear attack to the US mainland with launching a nuclear missile back into the attacking country. Believing that humans were ultimately unable to press the button to cause ultimate nuclear destruction, Coldman thought that only machines were able to reliably do so.
However, while trying to proves his point, Coldman is betrayed and shot by his partner, the KGB agent Zadornov. He dies of Zadornov's gunshots, but not before inputting Peace Walker's nuclear launch codes and leaking the false data to NORAD.
