With The Last of Us film now confirmed and releasing sometime in the future, who should take on the role of main character Joel?
Hugh Jackman . Viggo Mortensen would be awesome too but it would be too similar to the road which is particularly not a bad thing but just similar and Hugh in Prisoners was just amazing , that scene in the bathroom with the hammer was really well done and shows he can do alot more than just the awesome wolverine , his acting skills was top notch in that movie . Joel Edgerton would be amazing too , Warrior was epic. Too many awesome choices , lets hope one of these actually get the part .
Or Josh Brolin.
Or Gerard Butler or Liam Neeson ... Josh Brolin could be David :) but that would be hard because david will only be there for a couple of scenes so its hard to get such a high profile actor like him for a few scenes . Mads mikkelsen would nail the role , that guy is so underrated . Matthew mcconaughey would be awesome too .
I think Jackman is the best option, but he would probably have to lose a bit of muscle to really go fully Joel! It's so important to get this right I'm actually nervous, I love The Last of Us and want a film I can watch over and over again and give me the same emotional attachment the game gave me.
http://www.cinemazzi.com/wp... Either Jackman or Brolin would be fine with me, but Prisoners shows Jackman could kill this role. Brolin definitely looks a lot like Joel in the face though IMO
Gerard Butler, Josh Brolin is definitely a very good choice.
Morgan Freeman as Joel Morgan Freeman as Ellie Morgan Freeman as Sarah Morgan Freeman as Tess Morgan Freeman as Voice over. This or I am 100% against the movie
Josh brolin all the way!!!
I've said it before and i'll say it again: Michael Cera as Joel Otherwise another good candidate is Dennis Rodman, his acting skill have been very underappreciated.
Gerard Butler https://www.youtube.com/wat...
@morganfell sorry, accidental disagree while trying to click link!
Yeah I agree Mikkelsen would be phenomenal as David... http://us.cdn281.fansshare....
Hugh Jackman...it's an obvious choice If you've seen Prisoners you'll know why http://www.4geekslikeyou.co... He looks like Joel He's a good actor He certainly had Joel like qualities in Prisoners He's a the best choice for them to go with, especially with Hugh Jackman having so much starpower to give the film good advertising. Josh Brolin would be the second choice though
Loved Prisoners, Jackman at his best!
Hugh Jackman would be awesome, he's got the look!
just for the sake of it - Antonio Banderas! hey, it's like returning the favor for this http://cloud.attackofthefan...
Gerard Butler all the way, he just seems like he'd be a bit more of an "every-man" whose been through some ish.
i have always thought that joe manganiello would be a great fit for joel. he looks and sounds just like him.
Denzel Washington, think book of Eli meets man on fire.
Josh Brolin has the right look, the right voice, and he's a pretty decent actor. Even Troy Baker wants Brolin to play Joel in the movie.
It' a darn pity Troy Baker isn't a doppleganger for Joel, he preformed well on The Last of Us: One night live!
Yep, to me Josh is the only perfect choice. Others could play him, but Josh is pretty much Joel.
Dylan McDermott has my vote.
Very underrated actor. Enjoyed him very much in American Horror Story.
He looks perfect for the role
I agree he has the facial hair down to a tee!
He was the actor I kept thinking of for the longest time for this role, was about to post it until I read yours, good choice!
I actually mocked up who I think should play everybody... here you go.. http://i.imgur.com/8VtFQhg....
Apparently Maisie Williams is already being courted for Ellie. http://screenrant.com/last-... I quite like Josh Brolin for Joel although I think Michael Fassbender could also be a great fit.
Maisie might work as Ellie, having trouble picturing it but there isn't a lot of options for that role. Maybe Chloe Moretz, I don't know. As for Joel, one other actor I want to throw out there is Russel Crowe. He can play any role. Also I think Emma Watson might be able to play someone younger even if she is older now. She would have been such a perfect Ellie 4 years ago, but maybe could still pull it off.
Love your choice for Tess
John Hawkes as David would be awesome. God I hope Gerard Butler isn't Joel. Has that dude EVER acted well in ANYTHING?
