This is why Nolan should play Drake in the Uncharted film, he IS Drake....he dosen't even need to act.

Was about to say that. North is Drake's Voice actor AND Mo-cap actor. He IS Drake in the fullest sense. And he uses his natural voice, so yeah, I'll have to agree.

Though I truly don't see ANY importance whatsoever of Video game-to-Movie adaptions, I think North should be cast as Drake. Besides, they can tone him up if necessary. Actors do it all the time.

The same goes for David Bateson (Hitman) they should of just used him for the movie, he IS Mr 47!

Its coz we live on a planet where its easier to make this more difficult for ourselves, ive give up thinkin how easier and better things (all kinds of things) could be for all us mofos

and yet people fail to realise this

The thing I hate the most is when people say things like "Fillion should be Drake he ACTS like him"....and Nolan dosen't. Nolan acts out the cutscenes for Uncharted...well as I've already said he dosen't really need to act. You even might get the "Nolan can't act" excuse when in reality he's an actor, he just went more into the voice acting industry instead.

I think any Uncharted fan should want Nolan for the part despite any problems there is. The Comic Con panal proves that they really really want to do it and Richard McGonagle even said people should tell there friends to get them the part. It really seems like they are relying on fans to get them the part.

Get some big star names for the villains, get Nolan on a bulk up/strict diet plan and make him look abit younger and were all good to go

Because Nathan Fillion is a realistic choice, Nolan North isn't. Nolan North hasn't really done anything of mention (acting wise) and apparently the budget for Uncharted is supposed to be fairly big, so I don't think they're going to risk casting an unknown/little known actor just because a few fans want him.

The Uncharted fans are only going to make up about like 10% (maybe less) of the people that actually go to see the movie. In a perfect world, Nolan North would be Drake and Emily Rose would be Elena, but we don't live in a perfect world, so we can only hope for the next best/realistic thing, and that's Nathan Fillion.

And honestly, the story in Uncharted games aren't all that strong anyways. They're good, but only as good as a b-movie action flick, so to me, I'd rather have somebody I like (Nathan Fillion)play a generic character rather than somebody I know very little of who has barely done anything movie wise (Nolan North) play a generic character.

But drake is handsome, Nolan is ugly and fat ...

Anti-Fanboyer2633d ago

But everything else is him, from personality to the little intricacies.

egidem2633d ago (Edited 2633d ago )

Wait, they haven't chosen Nolan North for the Drake part?? He is as close to Drake as people can get...he voices him for god's sake!

You silly directors...
What are you waiting for? Do it! Do it now!

WhiteLightning2633d ago

To be honest it's people who interview Neil Burger, they always say "Nathan Fillion is fans favorite...blah blah blah" which is BS because it's kind of spilt since other fans want Nolan. Neil actually said in an interview he wants to do the script first so he can THINK about who should play Drake, what actor could play him.............erm think about it, with Nolan you don't need to think about anything. He is Drake

They never say "Oh Neil if you sae the comic con the voice and motion cap actors want to play there parts would you consider them"

I agree - Nathan Fillion said that he'd love to play Nathan Drake in the Uncharted movie, but he says that Castle keeps him extremely busy. Nolan North on the other hand seems to always be free...why not go with him?

earbus2633d ago (Edited 2633d ago )

Jim caviezel should play drake.

egidem2633d ago

AKA Jesus Christ??? Hmmm No, I don't think so.

JohnMarston2633d ago

Wonder how much Sony paid him to say that.

HeavenlySnipes2633d ago

He plays Drake in the mocap for Uncharted games and he is also the voice. Heck some of the stuff they say is ad-libbed and completely from him.

Miiikeyyy2633d ago

Even when he's talking live there, It's like I'm watching Nate XD He acts just like him, Although he doesnt look much like Nate, he sounds and acts just like him

JohnMarston2632d ago

@ both of you

Nolan North doesnt act like Drake. Drake acts like Nolan North. Think about it.

“Aside from his ‘freakish’ upper body strength, I’d say we’re very much alike.”

Ain't that the truth? It's kind of funny if you think about it. The speed he hoists himself up a wall and how he can hold onto a pole with one hand and fire a gun with the other.

Miiikeyyy2633d ago

Well he's clearly been doing it for years, When I used to parkour My upper-body strength was pretty awesome cus I did it every day.

dinkeldinkse2633d ago

So Nolan North spends the majority of his time killing hundreds of henchmen to stop an evil douche from using a supernatural treasure?

MaxOpower2633d ago

Exactly! Is Nolan North a murder?..
