I played some BO1 and went to the main menu... Then I heard the interrogator say 'I know when you're lying'... I just remembered: What the hell happened to Weaver? He survived BO1, Woods didn't, Woods gets a part, Weaver doesn't... What happened there?

Taking to account that Operation Charybdis targeted the entire main crew (minus Woods), and they all returned alive, Weaver was either a sole victim of the operation or he went underground/retired/reassigned.
It could be a case of Gene Farber not wanting to come back to voice Weaver. Now in the past this wouldn't have been an issue they would have just re-cast the role, but gaming these days is that professional they just don't do that as often anymore.
They did it to Hudson, so that can't be the case.

Ah, yes! I forgot about South Africa. It makes sense. Thanks.

According to unlocked intel, Mason never fully recovered from being brainwashed and still hears Reznov. This made him a person of interest to the CIA. The CIA then decided he was a threat to national security. Weaver and Hudson also became people of interest due to their association with Mason. Mason, Hudson and Weaver later escaped to South Africa.
October 28, 1978 The CIA formed a joint task force with MI-6 in order to find and kill Mason, Hudson and Weaver in what they dubbed Operation Charybdis. While Mason and Hudson survived, Weaver is not mentioned by either Mason or Hudson in Call of Duty: Black Ops II, but however, Woods indirectly mentioned him in Old Wounds.

I suppose he wasn't deemed important enough, in BO1, he wasn't in very many missions.

Well Weaver is Russian. Maybe he returned home?.... just a guess
Are you living under a rock? Isn't it obvious enough Woods survived the events of BO1 given the fact he was the character in all those reveal and teaser trailers?
I think he meant to say that Woods was presumed dead at the end of BO1. Where as Weaver was well and truly alive, so it's odd to put all that effort into reviving Woods, but not having a single cameo of a character that was very much alive at the end of the first game.
Also Hudson does have a different VA, good ear. Michael Keaton, Some pretty decent star power right there.
