The Browncoats and Castillions rose, but have been shot in the face by Max Payne. If you’ve been following, most people – including Lazygamer and the man himself – wanted the role of Uncharted’s Nathan Drake to go to Nathan Fillion, star of the unfortunately short-lived, but excellent Firefly.
Queue tears and vitriolic outrage, because Mark Wahlberg has confirmed he’s nabbed the lead role in David O. Russell’s upcoming Uncharted movie adaptation.
The wooden actor also confirmed the rumour that Joe Pesci and Robert De Niro are to reunite for the film.
â€œThat’s who he wants to write the parts for,â€ he said. â€œI talked to Pesci about it and I know David’s people have talked to De Niro. I’m obviously in whatever David wants to do, but the idea of it is so off the charts: De Niro being my father, Pesci being my uncle. It’s not going to be the watered-down version, that’s for sure.â€
I kinda like Wahlberg as an actor (He was fantastic in Departed), but he’s really no Nathan Drake. He just doesn’t seem to possess the swashbuckling smarmy charm required for the role. Right from the onset, it looks like this is going to be another typical Hollywood butchering of a videogame.
