Gordon Silberman is a supporting character in 2012. He is the boyfriend of Kate Curtis, a plastic surgeon and amateur pilot, who flew the family away from California and Yellowstone. He then piloted the big Russian plane to China, alongside Sasha. When the group crash-landed, killing Sasha, Yuri abandoned Gordon, Tamara and the Curtis family, who had no tickets. Fortunately, Tenzin and Nima picked them up, and they stowed-away on the American ark.

When they were going through the hydraulic chamber, the gates opened, causing Gordon and Tenzin to cling onto the ledge. While Tenzin was saved by Jackson, Gordon fell into the gears and was crushed.

Gordon was a casualty of the 2012 apocalypse.
