Nathan Fillion, the star of Firefly, is Drake!!

9 replies 232 views Edited Jun 17, 2008

I thought that the entire time until I saw the actual guy, playing drake,who doesn't look like nathan drake the character in the game, I guess he is loosly based on him; and they have the same first name. I bet bet bet he was cast from Nathan Fillion, but it probably cost too much to actually get him to play the part.

 

Sorry if this was mentioned before.

It has been mentioned before but it's still true.  Capt. Malcolm Reynolds is Nathan Drake.  I have often wondered if anyone has shown this game to Fillion and what he thinks of it.

Nathan Drake has more in common with Clive Cussler's Dirk Pitt than either of those characters. The black hair, hazel eyes, and razor sharp wit all are traits that Pitt has. Cussler always describes Pitt as an "everyman", similar to the way that Nathan Drake is described by Naughty Dog.

 

I know I sound like a broken record, but read either Inca Gold or Sahara and you'll see.

We want Nathan Fillion to be cast as Nathan Drake! Yes! NATHAN FILLION is the BEST choice to play Nathan Drake! He's got action hero written all over him, with the biceps to prove it. He's extremely handsome, bright, clever, sexy, hot, young and devilishly funny. And he wants this role as much as we want it for him!

It's his turn to be the next powerful leading man on the big screen. We Browncoats and Castillions are determined to get him up where he belongs, and keep him there. He has single-handedly transformed the term "geek" into "sexgod." He's an up-and-coming A-list movie star with muscle and heat and he's a-comin' to take over feature films! I feel it! Grab him while you can for the Uncharted franchise. Because he'll also make the best Indiana Jones when they re-boot those movies!!

In his campaign to be Nathan Drake, we Browncoats and Castillions rise up and firmly support our Captain Nathan Fillion!

Yeah, Dirk Pitt and Nathan Drake do seem to share some things in common (I've read 16 of the Dirk Pitt books to date, including the two you mentioned).  But, I would be VERY ticked off if they used the actor (Matthew McConaughey) who played Dirk Pitt in the movie version of Sahara.

don't really care much about who it is.

 

i just hope this is actually being made and it's good

 

because 99% of game-based movies i've

 

watched so far have been...well, without sounding informal,

 

quite a dissapointment.

Supposedly Mark Walburg will play Drake in the movie.  I love Walburg, but he is not the man for the part.  Nathan seems perfect for it however.

I think it's official, judging from the IMDB entry for this: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1464335/ 

 

Which makes it a movie to avoid for me.  I'd rather not taint my fond memories of a beloved game series with Mark Wahlberg playing Nathan Drake.  That guy is just terrible.
