Kotaku: The popular choice for the role of Uncharted's Nathan Drake keeps things classy on Twitter, weighing in on the unexpected casting of Mark Wahlberg as the charismatic, half-tucked treasure hunter in the big screen adaptation.
Good, He Decided to be the bigger man. @TheDarkness : Agreed, i like his work as well, but he is so not "Nathan Drake".
He's a good actor and will do great. What is important, the rumors about Drake's father and uncle turned out to be fake, that would destroy movie a lot more than lead actor not being Nathan.
mark wahlberg is one of my favorite actors. he plays good roles
Oh come off it Fillion, you know the fan reaction towards Walhberg and your trying to calm everyone down, well it won't work but I respect you for being the bigger man :) Yes some people don't like his acting at all, I like it I thought he was pretty funny in the other guys and showed a great acting skills in the departed But when it comes to playing a video game character whos personality is nothing like what your used to showing on screen then no.....Marks likely to make this movie crap. Sorry Nathan but deep down you knew you should of got the part....heck you wanted the part. I'm not saying I wanted Fillion but I can respect the large fanbase that wanted him to be Drake, I'm on Nolan Norths side or Bradly cooper if there was going to be a big well known star :)
Nolan North does an amazing job voicing Drake and he seems like a really nice guy, but he really doesn't look like Nathan Drake much at all.
Gerard Butler for Nathan drake! THIS IS UNCHARTED!
Yeh..... that joke died out like 2 years ago...
He's just trying to get some attention because he wanted the role so bad and the wrong choice for Nathan Drake was chosen. I bet this is what happened. With Nathan Fillion, the Uncharted movie would have earned about $600Million. Then Mark was announced to play him. Whoops. Drops to $100Million. And the chances of a sequel movie has been crushed.
Wow you must be pyschic to know how good the movie will do even though no information was given out about the movie. People should give Mark a chance and see what happens. If people dont like the movie then so what it doesnt make the game worse.
[email protected] amount would go up because everyone wants to see how he did.. the haters will want to see it so they can go "see! we told you he'd suck!" the lovers will want to go see it so they can go "see! we told you he'd suck!"
I refuse to go see it and I hope it flops. I want these fuckin' studios to stop making decisions based on star power and focus more on the character and the fans they are trying to make money off of. Wahlberg is not only too short, but he doesn't have the wit or sarcasm as Drake. It should be natural and not forced. Ryan Reynolds has that natural ability. Mark likes playing a tough guy even though his character in THE BIG HIT as hit man made me think of him as a pussy
F&ck mark wahlberg. he will not make a good drake. we all know this. if i wanna see how he does as drake i will PIRATE this movie. that turd deserves nothing. Nathan Fillion, was just the right choice from the start. he may not be as big of a star as mark but lets face it, if he got this part he would've been just as big.
True, he isn't as well-known, but he is way more suited to the character. The Malcolm Reynolds character he played in Firefly/Serenity is so much like Nathan Drake, they have the same witty sense of humor and everything.
All I think of when I hear Mark Wahlberg's name is "What? No."
Nathan Fillion is a cool guy it's obvious he makes that remark...that just something like Nathan Drake would say... This is what Mark Wahlberg needs to say:"i played the game and heard what the fans want...i will not take this part and give Nathan Fillion a chance to shine...i've had parts galore".
So I guess that makes ME and Fillion that are looking forward to Wahlberg as Drake haha.
No U/Mark Wahlberg/Nathan Fillion/Hollywood and the suits not the people who want to go see a great movie made out of a brilliant game.
lol i knnow im gonna get flamed for this but here i go anyway Many loud mouthed fans always do the samething "ugh are you retarded its not suppose to be this way" how many times have you all been proven wrong. all throughout the history of games for instance windwaker is one of the most amazing games but when it got announced "wth, this isnt zelda" or when kingdom hearts first came out "wtf final fantasy and Disney... this is gonna be gay" I guess my point is naughty dog themselves are watching over this movie and they're not gonna let the movie stink. Uncharted isn't your franchise its theirs. If the movie sucks then watever and if ur skeptical of it when the movie comes out wait for a review you arent obligated to watch it so just chill and let these ppl do their jobs
