UNCHARTED'S Nolan North gives his say on what he'd like to see if the game ever gets the Hollywood treatment and who he'd like to see play Nathan Drake.
although Walberg doesnt look much like Drake ..i would nt mind if he will portray him ...the actor who will play drake must have agile body physique ..Walberg has that physique and also has the witty humor .....to put just a good looking -gym pumped actor like Chris Patt wouldnt be proper ...
Ugh Nathan fillion OR Jeremy Renner (an older drake) They both have the look nail the look IMO and even have the great sense of humor.
Tyler Hoechlin would have been perfect, but he'll be playing Superman on the Supergirl TV Show.
@Luffy: I thought you were being serious there for a second!! I still wonder how anyone gives Statham a role in anything.
It really depends on the time frame the movie is supposed to take place in. Would Drake need to be in his 30's or 40's or younger? I like the Nathan Fillion and Jeremy Renner idea if they were going for a 40 something Drake. And both can do sarcastic jokes while dangling from a ledge or in a high tense action chase sequence. @zeuanimals... shows that you know nothing about either actor. They are the same age. both born in 1971 and are now 45 ea. Even Walberg is 45.
Fillion's too old now. Jeremy Renner's a good pick. Oscar Isaac's one of my favorite actors though, and I think he can play the part. Naughty Dog have said that Nate has a little Hispanic in him, Oscar Isaac's full Guatemalan but it could work.
@luffy123 Statham can play Charlie cutter
Nathan Fillion would be IMHO perfect. Funny, sarcastic and similar enough. Check Serenity/Firefly
Ummmm Pratt is a lot funnier than walberg
Yes he is but he is stupid funny not asshole funny. Drake is sarcastic with his jokes. Wahlberg plays the sarcastic funny asshole role perfect in his movies.
Pratt is taller and younger than Walberg but it really depends on how old Drake needs to be in the movie. Starlord vs Marky Mark....
Drake isn't supposed to be buff. Mark Walberg is buff as hell. Remember the movie No Pain No Gain with the Rock?
Nolan North should. It's Sony Pictures they should get him on a strict bulk up diet, apply some good makeup to make him look younger and take a chance on him along with Richard and Emily. If they want big stars then get Navaro, Roman and Eddie to be played by big celebs to draw in a crowd. Maybe a cameo from some others in the form of a pirate or whatever. Maybe a Sir Francis Drake flashback who knows. Fact is they should just condense the games script and use that.
Nolan North doesn't have great acting creds. I can't even name a film he was in. He more of a voice guy than an actor. The Drake character was based on fireflies main character played by Nathan Fillion, who will no doubt be an excellent fit for the Uncharted. Hell Nathan Fillion being an excellent actor won't even be able to sell Uncharted because he doesn't do movies and inspire people to watch the film. People need to have a realistic stance on this, we need a person who can sell the uncharted movie to people like Fassbender and its cast is selling the Assassins creed movie. One of the many things that didn't gel with me with the Warcraft movie was the main actor. I didn't know who he was and that played a huge factor in my interest in the film.
Yet a vast majority of times, no matter how big the actor may be, the video game adaptation film usually ends up bad. Max payne, Mortal Kombat, Doom, Hitman, that resident evil afterlife (you know, the one that took iconic characters like chris) I can keep going, and they all have big name actors tied to them
You do realize he acts in Uncharted. They do motion cap where he literally acts everything out. If anything his credentials should be more valued since he has to imagine the scenery because he's just in a white room with a special suit, a shit ton of cameras and fake objects that represent guns, tools and other various objects. I say he SHOULD play the role. Who better than someone who looks like Drake... because he is, has played Drake for years... because he is Drake, and who... IS DRAKE!
As IceKoldKilla said, mocap... They had to act out the cut scenes in a body suit to get things right. https://www.youtube.com/wat... You want to see how well some "voice actors" can do acting, just watch the Last of Us on stage (The Last of Us: Last Night). https://youtu.be/aAhT9gbmOt... Best part of the Last Night - https://youtu.be/aAhT9gbmOt...
While I would agree that North is the perfect Drake, hell he's the only Drake we KNOW. I don't think that would fly in a Hollywood "blockbuster" film. You HAVE to have an established name as the lead. It's the norm and the very reason why actors and actresses are shoved into these roles...to bring in the masses. WE know the story and love it. The masses have to be brought in. Many people need that draw of a high profile actor to even consider watching a movie. It sucks. But, it's the Hollyweird norm. I'd be excited to see North get the nod. But, I understand how he doesn't stand much of a chance.
You're kidding right?
Opps I meant Joel from The Last of Us.
how do you get Tom Cruise and a voice actor from TLOU confused.
(Joke) (0_o) you
don't googley eye me, guy
Yeah he was perfect during firefly days now he's too old has a bad back ( why he's fat now ).
Make James Roday (Shawn from psych) lose a few pounds and he would be the perfect do
I was thinking the same thing.
Nolan would definitely fit the role.
Chris Pine could probably do the role justice.
Lol I said the same thing just now before I read yours guess we are alone for me it was just a sudden thought though. Chris pine definitely is sarcastic enough but the main problem he might have is his natural ability to excite the watchers while he discovers treasures. In all honest firefly Nathan fillion would have been beyond perfect for Nathan Drake. Castle character + firefly = perfection.
I liked him in star trek, he is both funny and can also be serious. Guess it's just u and me on this one though :)
Is this even up for debate? Nolan North should do this. The man who made him come alive should play him on the big screen.
Some new guy through a worldwide audition.
Up until this last game, Drake always reminded me of David Boreanaz in both looks and character. http://www.imdb.com/name/nm...
Yeah, that is true....
If they insist on making a move (I wish they wouldn't) cast Nolan North as Drake. He knows the roll already. You'd have to be an idiot to not use the people that already are these characters.
"You can doo it!"
Bradly Cooper, end of story.
He would make an excellent rafe
Why, because he can come his hair back, like Rafe did? No, he will make an excellent Nathan Drake.
Rafe would be Cillian Murphy. Any other choice is a waste.
jake gyllenhaal would be rafe... https://40.media.tumblr.com...
I thought Nathan Fillion was always the answer?
Robbie Amell for Nathan Drake!!!! https://www.google.tt/searc...
Thanks, my mistake.
Wahlberg is nothing but a douche. Bad actor overall and has the same facial expression in every god damn movie. He always look so scared like he's going to shit himself. Neither is he funny. Fuck that guy! :)
Wahlberg is not a bad actor and he has made some great movies but he isnt right for this role.
Not that I'd go as far as foaby, but he's not that great. He's had some pretty great movies, but he hasn't always been that great in them. He's often passable, sometimes good, rarely great....imo. I wouldn't see a movie just for him and I wouldn't decide not to watch one because of him.
While I was reading this Chris pine popped into my head any one else see that ?
Jamie foxx...he was so as electro!
Jamie Foxx....he was so good as Electro!
Hope you are joking. It's hard to tell over the interwebz.
Good call. He's a terrible actor.
No... the mountain.
Jason Sudekis Jensen Ackles Zachary Levi
Drake may be a little goofy, but it's not his defining quality.
Young Harrison Ford? Oh yeah, they already made those 4 movies...
It should be Nolan... And if it isn't, Just give it to the Rock.... Good action actor with great comedic timing... At least it won't be scrutinised for white wash....... ;)
Jonah Hill people jeez easy choice
