I know the game has not even come out yet, and we only know about a few characters from the trailers Naughty Dog has given us, but this day and age, it's never too early to start planning for the movie.
So, I thought I would post my "dream cast" for a TLOU flick, based off what we've seen so far.
James Brolin as Joel
Okay, complete fantasy, since James is much older looking now. But, I think his son Josh could do a great job. Just give him some make-up / thicker facial hair. Both have proven to be great dramatic / action actors. Plus, the deep voice to go with it.
Ellen Page as Ellie
I know i'm not the only one who saw the resemblance between the "old" Ellie model and actress Ellen Page.
She has the attitude, height, and looks for a perfect Ellie. Sure, the actress has gotten older, but movie magic could make her look younger.
Annie Wersching as Tess
No brainer. She did the motion capture AND voice work for Tess. You may recognize her from the show "24" or many of the other TV Shows / Movies she has appeared in.
W. Earl Brown as Bill
Same with Annie to Tess, Mr. Brown here did the motion capture / voice for Bill. You may recognize him from "Scream", "Deadwood", "Justified", or one of the many other supporting roles he has had through out his career.
(P.S. I apologize if someone has already created a thread like this. I searched, but nothing popped up except the Uncharted movie cast thread.)
I would say for me,
Joel: Gerard Butler or Ben Affleck(Argo, looks similar)
Ellie: Ellen page or even Ashley Johnson with shorter hair.
Not too sure about anyone else though. It's always better if they can get the performance actors to do it. Have Blur Studio and Naughty Dog team up. That'd be one hell of a fine movie. I would prefer a tv series, they tend to last longer and you can flesh out the characters more.
If i get to cast the TLOU movie this will be the line up
Tom Hanks (or ray liotta or Christian Bale lol) - Joel
Chloe Moretz - Ellie (don't look alike but Ellie has that Hit Girl attitude in her)
Gwyneth Paltrow/ Halle Berry - Tess
I have no idea who should be bill. I have only seen one trailer with him on it.
Troy Baker as Joel, Ashley Johnson as Ellie, Annie Wersching as Tess and W. Earl Brown as Bill.
Meh. If those guys were cast no one would watch the movie. Well, maybe Wersching could draw an audience. They wouldn't be there for the movie though, just her **bleep**.
