Nathan Fillion Gunning For Role Of Nathan Drake
If they have to make an "Uncharted" movie, perhaps there's only one thing they need to do- cast Nathan Fillion as Nathan Drake.
After the confirmation that David O. Russell has signed on to write and direct the big-screen adaptation of Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, people have started to wonder...who's gonna play Drake? Well, Nathan Fillion - of "Firefly" and "Serenity" fame, among many other things - has been suggested by more than a few gamers, and guess what? Fillion himself seems to want the role. As he posted at his Twitter page:
"If ever there was a Twitter campaign, let this be it. Rise, ye Browncoats. Rise, ye Castillions. RISE!"
And he puts in a link to this article, with a ton of comments supporting the idea of Fillion as Drake. Look, Hollywood, don't mess this up. From our standpoint, while you might be able to land a bigger name, this guy is perfect. He is Drake. His attitude in the "Firefly" shows and in "Serenity" is Drake to a "T;" Fillion has the perfect combination of sarcasm and seriousness that such a role requires.
Make it happen, Mr. David O. Russell. Make it happen. What say the PSXE readers?
