Wolverine To Be Nathan Drake?

Nolan North the voice of Nathan Drake was interviewed on the latest OPM UK podcast and stated he was interested in playing Nathan Drake in the movie, but says he understands Hollywood, and as of right now they are strongly going after Hugh Jackman who is known for playing Wolverine in the X-Men movies.

“I would love to do the movie, obviously I’d love to do it as Nathan Drake, but I’ve done film and television and I understand the reality of the business,” he went on to say,

“Jackman is who I’d like to see. I think the producers would like to see Jackman too, because he has that tough guy exterior, but there’s also a lot going on behind his eyes. A lot of emotion and sensitivity on that brusque exterior, and he has great comic timing. He’s a phenomenal actor.

“I just hope I get a part on the movie so I can work with Hugh.”

    Well Nolan North, work your ass off getting in shape before you consider playing as Nathan. Hell fuck it, i just googled you and you look old and wasted! pls don’t play the part. Hugh Jackman, has the right look, height, accent, and charisma to be Nathan…

    most likely one of these actors can be considered

    1) Chris Evans (Torch from Fantastic Four)
    2) Colin Farrel (I know Alexander sucked so bad, but give him a chance)
    3) Shia LaBeouf (Transformers)
    4) Taylor Lautner (Wolf kid in Twilight)
    5) Robert Pattison ( Vampire kid in Twilight)
    6) Chris Pine (young Kirk in Star Trek movie)
    7) Ryan Reynolds (Deadpool in Xmen, totally voting for this dude)
    8) Paul Walker ( I dont know, he looks Drakish)
    9) Matt Damon ( because he was bad ass in all Bourne films)
    10) James Franco ( because his not Hayden Christensen who can’t act)

    Not SO in my list…(UWE BOLL list)

    1) Ashton Kutcher ( im praying won’t Tweet about him playing the part, christ!)
    2) Ben Affleck (because your not Matt Damon)
    3) Brad Pitt ( too old)
    4) Matthew Mc Conaughey (too obvious to play the part, and i hate him)
    5) Nicholas Cage ( good actor but stupid choice of movies, his with Van Damme actor’s guild)
    6) Keanu Reeves (must learn to act)
    7) Hayden Christensen ( played young and teen Vader, doesn’t know how to act!)
    8) Zack Effron ( GAY)
    9) Orlando Bloom (Double GAY)
    10) Jonas Brothers ( triple GAY)

    @Machee:

    Chris Evans and Shia LaBeouf could be good.
    Taylor Lautner doesn’t look nothing like Drake.
    If Robert Pattison plays as Drake I’ll kill myself.
    It would be cool if Paul Walker did it then he brings out that Skyline out of no where
    (jk inside joke lol)
    And I’m too lazy right now to talk about the rest you mentioned lol..

    @m3xic4n_843: Yea, i wish they’d use the voice actor of Nathan Drake. That way, he’d LOOK and SOUND exactly the same.

    Ben Affleck would be a perfect actor now I think about it. He’s most definitely got the humour, films like Dogma, Good Will Hunting etc prove that, he can do the action and he’s a all-round fantastic actor. On top of that, he’s got the look (well, pretty damn close)

    I’d be happy if Affleck played Nathan Drake.

    Believe me i would like Nathan Fillion to play the part, but Hollywood type of casting will always go for new blood and age for this part. So you have to look at physique, humor, charisma, and a new face that will be acknowledge by young generations. So much as i love Mr Fillion to play the part, it’s unlikely he’ll get it but he can make a good villain though.

    So, my list to villain to be on Uncharted the movie.

    1) Sean Bean (since playing Boromir, i liked him)
    2) Nathan Fillion (He can play as Drake senior or rival)
    3) Gerald Butler (grow the beard back = bad ass villain)
    4) Ian McKellen (old scrooge villain who wants to take over the world type)
    5) Samuel L Jackson (he can play anything, like he doesn’t read the script anymore)
    6) Antonio Banderas (a villain with an accent and wearing an explorer getup)
    7) Ozzy Osbourne (can play Lucifer, who resurrected and started his own jargons!)

    So anyone can give me leading lady list for Drake?

    i dont think he fits the part. i mean he’s a great actor and i love him in the x men movies, but he’s no nathan drake. dont you think he would be PERFECT as solid snake in the metal gear movie? he looks and sounds exactly like snake.
