Revisiting Our Uncharted Casting Call

1 min read


You may recall that around about a year ago, I used to put together a weekly feature called Casting Call.

In the Casting Calls, I set out to pick popular videogames that had not yet been made into movies, and then take a crack at looking at which actors/actresses could fill the roles of the different characters in the movie.

Anyone who was on the site on Friday will also know that it has now been confirmed that an Uncharted movie is on the way. The big question? Who is going to play the role of Nathan Drake, as well as the other main characters in the game.

If you haven’t already noticed, the above image has been photo manipulated with my chosen actor in Nathan Drakes’ place.

So, now that the movie is going to become a reality, we want to take a look back at our choices and see if we are still happy with them.

You can check out the Casting Call by clicking here and then post a comment below telling us if you think we are on the money or if you have any better suggestions as to who could play the different roles.

When it comes to the cast, one major change I would have made was for the role of Gabriel Roman, and would now swap him from Ed Harris to Alan Dale (Charles Widmore from the LOST T.V series).

Tell us what you think.

  • Ryan Renolds FTW! he has it all, attitude, charisma, and he’s built like a brick sh*t house!

  • I still think Nathan Fillion would be perfect.
    If you’ve ever seen Dr Horrible’s sing-a-long blog, you’d surely agree.

    Your original casting call was inspired.

  • now that I think about it I think Nathan Fillion would be a good call…

  • easy

    naa keep ed harris and drop nathan fillion in favour josh brolin (sans the tash).

  • Nathan Fillion would be awesome. He already played a wise-cracking dude in Firefly so it’s no stretch of the imagination to see him in the role of Drake.

  • Janrik

    nathan fillion ftw.

  • Reaver

    I love Nathan Fillion… in a completely heterosexual way, of course.

  • RivaZA

    Another actor that I think would be a good Nathan Drake is Joe Flanigan, he plays John Shepard in SG:Atlantis.

  • RSA-Ace

    I’m not sure why no one has mentioned Nolan North. Granted he doesnt look exactly like Nathan but well he sounds exactly like him 😆

  • WitWolfyZA

    BRENDAN FRAZIER!!!! nah just joking lol

  • RivaZA

    The character Elena Fisher could be played by Emily Rose.

  • hahaha..yeah, the similarity in their voices us just uncanny 😉

  • RSA-Ace

    Yeah i also get that with the Prince of Persia guy.
