In the latest issue of EDGE, has revealed quite a lot of new details for the high anticipated third-person survival horror game The Last of Us.

In the magazine, a part from Q&A with Troy Baker, voice actor of Joel (an adult male survivor appears to be middle-aged), revealing behind the inspiration of Joel’s voice.

The Q&A can be found at below:
Did you draw any inspiration from any specific sources?

Yeah - I’m a thief, I think it was a really good meeting of minds where the game was pulling its inspiration from Children of Men, No Country for Old Men. I think that Josh (Brolin) is an incredible actor, and what he did specifically in No Country was flawless. Intrinsically, any time you watch something you absorb that, and whether you’re conscious of it or not you’re me that Steve McQueen on The Great Escape came back with the script on the first day of shooting and had scratched out 60 per cent of his lines. And he said, “I’ll give you eyes, I’ll give you emotions, but I’m not going to talk. I don’t need to talk.” That’s a great choice. That’s the kind of person, the kind of actor, I want to be. Someone who says a lot without saying anything . So I think I pull inspiration from anywhere and anything that I can, and I bastardise it.

As a stage actor I agree totally that less is often more not Hammily with over arched eyebrows etc but you can say so much without actually articulating as we see in the trailer where Joel looks at Ellie before he cocks the gun, that exchange of looks and a gentle nod is superb especially in a rendered video game.
