We all know Natan Fillion had expressed his intent to play his namesake, Nathan Drake, for the upcoming Hollywood movie adaptation of the PS3-blockbuster, Uncharted. A faction of sorts have surfaced among fans, on the Internet, with people being torn between Fillion and Mark Wahlberg being cast for the lead role. 

 

We all know Natan Fillion had expressed his intent to play his namesake, Nathan Drake, for the upcoming Hollywood movie adaptation of the PS3-blockbuster, Uncharted. A faction of sorts have surfaced among fans, on the Internet, with people being torn between Fillion and Mark Wahlberg being cast for the lead role.
Ultimately, of course, it's been confirmed by the film director, David O. Russel, that the actor formerly known as Marky Mark has bagged the nameplate of Nathan Drake. Fillion and his fans may be disappointed (they do say the Castle actor looks very much alike like Nathan Drake), but he's taking it very gentlemanly, even championing Wahlberg for the role he wanted for himself not too long ago.
In the recent episode of the Nerdist Podcast, Fillion drops by and talks about - among that of his Canadian roots, his TV show, and more -  the upcoming Uncharted film, and giving praise to Wahlberg in the process.
"You know I would love to have an Indiana Jones forme, that's one of my greatest heroes of all time. You can't fault a man for: A) working with someone he's worked before; B) Mark Wahlberg, I think that's a talented guy. I think he does great work, that guy, and he's a huge international star, which I am not. I am not. I will be," he said.
"So sure, I would have loved it, but I can't fault anybody for any of the choices they make. You're gonna make a movie, make it the way you're gonna make it and have a great time."
Back in December, director Russel was approached by a fan at an event, campaigning for Fillion to be cast as the lead in the Uncharted movie. Unfortunately, Russel apparently had his eyes set on Wahlberg, and so Fillion will just have to wait it out until he gets his chance to star in his own Indiana Jones-inspired flick.
