Post your comments on this article




WestheadUK -> HUGHH (11/3/2014 7:44:15 PM)

Definitely Hugh Jackman. He's the perfect actor to play Joel!




undesirablenumber1 -> I would prepare to lay money on it being... (11/3/2014 8:06:59 PM)

... Frank Grillo who is eventually cast.




jamiezechner -> Hugh or Viggo (11/3/2014 8:09:36 PM)

either Hugh Jackman or Viggo Mortensen for Joel would be amazing! Also, Game of Thrones' Maisie Williams would make a great Ellie!




Rdog13 -> Startling omission (11/3/2014 9:13:13 PM)

You forgot Eric Cantona. The resemblance is uncanny.




robertb1989 -> (11/3/2014 9:21:11 PM)

has to be Dylan McDermott http://cdn3.whatculture.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/The-Last-Of-Us-Dylan-McDermott.jpg




DeadlyAvenger -> Paddy Considine! (11/3/2014 9:27:24 PM)

Paddy Considine is the spitting image of Joel!




Jimmyduudah -> Some of these suggestions would be criminal if chosen.... (11/3/2014 9:29:34 PM)

My initial thought was that it had to be Josh Brolin all the way. However I've had a rethink since I saw Prisoners. Josh Brolin is obviously right in the way he looks but can I say that he has portrayed the necessary emotion needed for the role? No. Not in any movie I've seen him in. Viggo Mortensen would be great, but it's too close to The Road. Now Hugh Jackman... After seeing Prisoners, I think he fits the role nicely. This movie will need a big acting name attached to it to succeed, like World War Z did (you can argue the merits of WWZ but it was a commercial success).




jackmars -> (11/3/2014 9:30:42 PM)

I always thought it should be Josh Brolin but my friend suggested nikolaj coster-waldau which i think could be a great idea




TonyJ -> Stop! (11/3/2014 9:47:43 PM)

There's no need for this movie. There's no way a film could get the viewer as emotionally involved as the game does. The cut scenes and cinematic gameplay is already better than a lot of what Hollywood has to offer anyway.
I know of nobody who's played the game that honestly wants to see the film. Talking up the cast list is good craic though.




the_driver -> Dakota Fanning and Josh Brolin (11/3/2014 10:04:21 PM)

Make it happen, somebody




Ben25BBB -> (11/3/2014 10:04:31 PM)

Hopefully it's set in the Last Of Us universe but doesn't have any of the same characters. Having a version of Ellie that looks different and isn't voiced by Ashley Johnson would be horrible, and even Joel having a different voice would be odd.. Really hoping it's different characters..




patrick_potter07 -> Josh Brolin and an unknown NOT HUGH JACKMAN (11/3/2014 10:54:57 PM)

if hugh jackman was cast for this it would be worse than ben affleck playing batman. you can't take jackman seriously like this role requires. hes too soft. even as wolverine.




PCN95 -> Michael Fassbender for Joel (11/3/2014 10:56:15 PM)

Really surprised he hasn't been mentioned! Sure he's not THAT old but with some make up, the beard and scruffy hair he'd pull it off.
But ultimately I agree that the universe of TLOU should be explored in a film, Joel/Ellie's story wouldn't live up to the game.




Hanroro -> MANU BENNETT (11/3/2014 11:01:16 PM)

All day long! He looks the exact part is and damn cool (as Deathroke in Arrow innit plus Azog in the hobbit doncherknow)




PCN95 -> RE: Voice Actors anyone? (11/3/2014 11:11:01 PM)

Ashley (Ellie) is too old, Troy Baker (Joel) too young in a nutshell.




PCN95 -> Michael Fassbender for Joel (11/3/2014 11:13:36 PM)

Really surprised he hasn't been mentioned! Sure he's not THAT old but with some make up, the beard and scruffy hair he'd pull it off.

HansGruber24 -> Paddy Considine (12/3/2014 4:53:33 AM)

He would be excellent.




ding_i_like_chips -> Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (12/3/2014 8:04:58 AM)

It has to be Jaime Lannister - something about Joel just reminded me of him all the way through. And if we were going down the GoT route, then Maisie Williams wouldn't be a bad shout for Ellie.




Kavandclay -> Nathan Fillion?? (12/3/2014 11:08:29 AM)

Heart says Fassbender but I also think that Joel Eggerton could pull it off (see his grizzled look from The Thing).

Nathan Fillion has the voice and the wit but I don't think he's a big enough name to open a movie like this.




paw18 -> (12/3/2014 11:42:01 AM)

troy baker is a great choice for joel, seeing as he motion captured the whole game and is the voice of the character, it would make sense. he just has to fill out a little and have a little help from the make up department. though i think the fact that this game is being made into a movie is a really dumb idea, it kind of is a movie already.




altap1994 -> matthew mcconaughey (12/3/2014 12:50:05 PM)

Why is he not on this list?




HulkSmash -> Sharlto Copley (12/3/2014 1:17:41 PM)

He should def be considered as he can do action and could look the part very well.




waltham1979 -> (12/3/2014 1:21:28 PM)

Has to be the Fassbender or Christian Bale...!!




gregoire -> Paddy Considine (13/3/2014 2:25:56 PM)

Because... Dead Man's Shoes




doug64 -> (13/3/2014 10:22:22 PM)

initially I was going with Karl Urban but I reckon Viggo could do the job. After all the Road is just a boring version of The last of us or is The last of us a exciting version of the Road :/
Anyway my point is that Mr Mortensen should get the gig. Check out Eastern Promise and you will see the darker side of him. Something that whoever plays Joel will need.




putthatcookiedown -> Joel Edgerton (14/3/2014 11:59:10 AM)

Becuase... 'What kind of fungus are you trying to cultivate in my house?'




aRTCy -> Anson Mount (14/3/2014 4:52:24 PM)

You clearly forgot about this guy. He is a dead ringer and has the build and acting chops for it.




aRTCy -> Anson Mount (14/3/2014 5:10:37 PM)

Just look at this image and tell me that's not Joel: http://www.imdb.com/media/rm2936908544/nm0609845?ref_=nmmd_md_nxt




renzeau -> Mel Gibson (21/3/2014 7:44:13 AM)

Great actor only age against him
