Even Nathan Fillion Wants You To Chill On Uncharted Movie Talk

We get it. You want Nathan Fillion to play the part of Nathan Drake in the Uncharted movie. Sony knows it, we know it, Fillion knows it. He knows it so intimately, in fact, he’d like you to stop being so crazy about it.

“I am certainly still interested in playing Nathan Drake”, the Firefly star told Screenrant at Comic-Con. “I think every actor I know wants their action-adventure hero, their Indiana Jones. That would be a good one for me, I think. What I don’t want is people pressuring that poor man [director Neil Burger]and souring him on the actual idea. If we could somehow just… do you remember the movie Inception? I think that’s what we need to do. We need to let him land on the idea on his own.”

And no, nutjobs, he doesn’t mean actually try and get into Burger’s head. Just relax. If it’s meant to be, it’s meant to be, and if it’s not, you don’t really need an Uncharted movie anyway! You’ve got the games. They’re movies where you do the shooting.

  • Nathan Fillion Is an awesome actor he’s prolly my favorite, I just have this feeling that he wouldn’t be the perfect fit for Drake.
    I hate to say it but I think it would be better if they find someone else…so long as it’s not Marky Mark; That man has like zero acting talent.

    • Really? he plays the same part in every role played in film, which there all rubbish.. not saying marky mark is any better.

      • Well he’s amazing for this role.

        and he doesn’t always play the same part. Look at his bit part in Saving Private Ryan and tell me that looks anything like Mal in Firefly.

  • Is it just me, or does anyone else think that while NF would have been perfect 10 years ago, now – not so much?

    • ive thought that to. he may be a little old. but actors often play characters of younger ages. how old is drake meant to be? low to mid 30s? still think fillion is the perfect choice. cant really think of anyone else who would suit the part.

  • personally, I believe that James Roday is more suited for Nathan Drake than anyone else.

    But this will probably never happen 🙁

    • At very least I’d seriously hope he was given a serious audition. If the guy can act with his whole body as well as his voice, game fans would really appreciate his involvement.

      If he doesn’t get a cameo the world is TOO UNFAIR!

    • Agreed. He even looks more like Drake than Nathan Fillion, not that that’s hard to accomplish. I’m sorry, he might have the right persona for the part (I’ve never seen him in action so I can’t speak to that), but there are a ton of actors out there who look way more like Drake than this Fillion guy.
