Who Should Join the Last of Us Cast?

GeekParty writes: "I’m the sort of person who starts casting movies in my head long before they’re announced. Figuring out the right actor for a role is like a game for me. Naturally, I wanted to try my hand at casting the Last of Us movie, and I think I did a decent job."

Pretty good casting there Foxtrot, apart from Ellen Page (too old). Wolverine reuniting with Jean Grey, awesome!

xHeavYx1678d ago

I think Robert Kneeper would make a better David

Unreal011678d ago

Nicholas Cage as Joel.

The movie would fly off the shelves. Haha.

Diver1678d ago

josh Brolin got my vote for joel. for ellie I gotta say a newcomer.

Eonjay1678d ago

I was wondering about your choice for Marlene

Damn, you nailed it.

-Foxtrot1678d ago

Well she either needs to be Marlene or after watching the last Walking Dead when she's kicking ass in the fog, Rochelle in a L4D2 film

Tiechie1678d ago

I think you got everything right apart from Joel. I think Viggo mortensen would make a better Joel.

Just my thoughts on it.

mochachino1678d ago

It's toss up for me between him and Jackman.

Thatguy-3101678d ago

For Ellie I would love Chloë Moretz. She's a good actress. She knows how to kick ass and play a very vulnerable role at the same time. Ellen page would be good but she is no teenager and can't pass as one. Ellie has to be young because it plays a big role in the whole daughter and father relationship with Joel. For Joel I would like Josh Brolin or Viggo Mortensen.

-Foxtrot1678d ago

Chloë Moretz would be a horrible choice, she's not really a good actress to be honest and really only shot to frame because of her foul mouth "bad ass" behaviour in Kick Ass as she was so young back then....basically because of the shock value.

I think Ellen Page could pass for one if she wanted, she's really small in real life and she looks like a teenage anyway despite being 27

Thatguy-3101678d ago (Edited 1678d ago )

Someone that's 27 can't pass for someone that is 14 and even they bump her age to 15 or 16 it just won't work. Then throw in a physically capable actress too. Ellie gets down and dirty in the fighting scenes which Chloe is good at when you watch kick ass

-Foxtrot1678d ago (Edited 1678d ago )

But thats it though....Kick Ass, it's the only decent thing she's in.

Hell if your talking about age then Chole is 17 so that wouldn't work either

If not Ellen then the last person I would want is Chloe


Swearing and being a potty mouth doesn't mean your a good acting.

Chloe is not a good actress and looks NOTHING like Ellie.

She's honestly the last person I would want.

king_george1678d ago (Edited 1678d ago )


No way dude Chloe could definitely pull it off. She just has that tough girl vibe that ellie displays in the last of us. And um helloooo ELLIE IS A POTTY MOUTH IN THE GAME. Chloe Moretz gets my vote. Although i wouldnt mind ellen either. Its just that she looks a bit too old to play a 14 year old girl

"Swearing and being a potty mouth doesnt mean your good at acting"

True. Very true. BUT ellie IS a potty mouth and chloe has proven that she can play that bad girl role. And it makes sense to cast someone who has experience with that type of role. Chloe has that experience

"Chloe is not a good actress and looks NOTHING like ellie"

That is your opinion. I believe she is a good actress that has more than enough potential and talent to do this. As far as looks, your not going to find someone that looks EXACTLY like ellie. Besides, Hollywood is very good at rearanging faces, hair, bodies etc., People can say Ellen looks more like ellie which i think is true but shes just too old to play a little girl who is 14.

"Shes honestly the last person i would want"

Sorry to hear that. She a sweet kid with loads of talent IN MY OPINION. but thats just me

Thatguy-3101678d ago (Edited 1678d ago )

Chloe can pass for a 15-16 yr old more than Ellen passing for one. Yea she's only in kick ass but the character she plays shows that's she's more than capable of playing Ellie. Ellen page hasn't done a role that shows that she can nail Ellie's part. When it comes to movies it's better to cast someone that would embody the character than to cast someone just because they look a like.
She doesn't look nothing like Ellie but she's more than capable of capturing Ellie's personality and persona on film.

". Ellen page hasn't done a role that shows that she can nail Ellie's part. "

Are you joking.....

Watch Super (2010), a better Superhero film to Kickass funnily enough.

A better part then Hit Girl in my opinion

Viggo would be awesome. Ellen Page is to old. Chloe Moretez is not vulnerable enough to play Ellie. Who would work for Ellie? Unknown actress...

Monkeycan81678d ago

I agree 100% she actually kinda looks like Ellie.

Kurisu1678d ago

Nobody. They should cancel the film so they don't turn a perfectly good game in to just another mediocre tie in.

classic191678d ago

yeah josh brolin, can definitively play joel. he seems like the only person that fits that role.

supraking9511678d ago

Ellie Fanning should play Ellie. She's Dakota Fanning younger sister. She was in Super8 and upcoming Maleficent
