Speaking to Screenrant at San Diego Comic Con 2011, Castle star Nathan Fillion revealed that he is still very much interested in portraying Nathan Drake in the upcoming Sony adaptation of Uncharted, with new director Neil Burger at the helm. Fans have been clamoring for Fillion to to portray the adventurer ever since the project was announced, and there’s no denying the striking resemblance between the two.
However, the amiable Fillion is concerned that the overwhelming enthusiasm of his fans might hurt his chances.
“I am certainly still interested in playing Nathan Drake. 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.”
Hear that, everyone? Don’t screw this up.
