FAN CAST: Uncharted: Drake's Fortune & Uncharted 2: Among Thieves by JoshW

Here are my choices for who I'd like to see star in an adaptation of the Playstation 3 games, Uncharted: Drake's Fortune and Uncharted 2: Among Thieves. Included are my top 3 picks for Nathan Drake as well as all of his allies and enemies from both games!

Uncharted: Drake's Fortune

A 400-year-old clue in the coffin of Sir Francis Drake sets a modern-day fortune hunter on an exploration for the fabled treasure of El Dorado, leading to the discovery of a forgotten island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. The search turns deadly when Nathan Drake becomes stranded on the island and hunted by mercenaries. Outnumbered and outgunned, Drake and his companions must fight to survive as they begin to unravel the terrible secrets hidden on the Island.

Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

The sequel sets Drake on a new course following Marco Polo’s 700-year-old trail through a diverse range of exotic environments to find out if the lost city of Shambhala, rumoured to lie deep in the Himalayas, really exists. This quest also pits him against a new, more formidable adversary who is after the same artefact – a ruthless, rogue paramilitary leader with a private army and a relentless ambition to recover the stone for himself.


Nathan Fillion

Although he’s a fan favourite to play Nate, I’d never really thought he was right for the role. However, after recently seeing him in Lost and Firefly I am now convinced that he definitely has the right look, personality and qualities as an actor to bring the character to life on the big screen!

Nolan North

North is a brilliant voice actor who some will know already as Nate while others will know him as the Prince of Persia, Deadpool and countless other video game and animated characters. His voice brings Nate to life in the game but he doesn’t have a huge live action background. Despite that I most definitely think he’d do the character justice.

David Boreanez

I’m a big fan of Boreanez’ who consistently shows a similar personality to Nate’s each week in Bones. Though he’d probably be my last choice out of the three actors I’ve named here I do think that he has the right look and personality to play the character!


Kristen Bell as Elena Fisher

Elena Fisher is a journalist who agrees to fund Nathan Drake's expedition for El Dorado in exchange for her tagging along and getting footage for her documentary.

Jeff Bridges as Victor "Sully" Sullivan

Sully is an old timer treasure thief with a criminal past and a large debt to his name. Though he has his faults, he's also a trustworthy ally and friend to Nathan Drake.


Terrence Stamp as Gabriel Roman

A crime lord that runs the South American criminal underworld and main antagonist of Nathan Drake.

Benicio Del Toro as Atoq Navarro

Navarro is a mercenary hired by Gabriel Roman to help find El Dorado.

Amaury Nolasco as Eddy Raja

Eddy Raja is a long time rival of Uncharted protagonist Nathan Drake. Eddy is the leader of a modern day band of pirates.


Jaime Murray as Chloe Frazer

An impulsive and reckless adventurer, she acts as though she's betraying Drake though in reality she's helping him.

Anthony Hopkins as Karl Schäfer

Karl Schäfer is a fellow explorer of Nathan Drake's who provides Nathan with key information and guidance in Uncharted 2.

Robin Atkin Downes as Tenzin

He and Nate go on an adventure together with Tenzin acting as Nate's guide. Their communication is awkward as Tenzin does not speak English and Nate does not speak Tibetan.


Graham McTavish as Zoran Lazarevic

Zoran Lazarevic is the leader of a secret terrorist society in Uncharted 2, set on beating Nathan Drake to the treasure.

Tim Roth as Harry Flynn

A former friend and associate of Drake's who operated within the same shady underworld of fortune hunters, smugglers and thieves that Drake inhabits.

JOSH- I am diggin this cast ;)

Boreanaz imo was born to play Drake

Tim Roth looks and acts just like Flynn

and Hopkins is dunamite in everything :D

2 Thumbs up from me Dude!!

(and somethin else is up with that picture of Kristen Bell ;) Lol)
LEEE777 - 3/6/2010, 4:43 PM
Come on dude, enough of the multiple castings!!! : P

NATHAN FILLION is perfect for DRAKE by the way!!

Great cast luv it, would sooo watch this, more than once at the flicks too!

Great work @ JOSH, thumbs up from me dude! ; )
joob234 - 3/6/2010, 4:50 PM
this is perfect man! jeff bridges is perfect for the wise ass sully is! i would go with nolan north though, just to stay true to the game using the same iconic voice, what live action stuff has he been in?

im not big on your chloe pick, shes not hot enough lol. i dont really like benecio deltoro, not because of his looks, just that he basically mumbles everything when he acts lol.

tim roth is perfect too,just maybe they'd use a little cg to make him look younger.

i love this game series. among thieves is one of my favorite games of all time. theyre coming out with a third one i read. im so pumped, i hope they use like atlantis or something or something more obscure but still well known. You hit this one out of the park man. how long does it take you to do these cuz it seems like you whip one out every other day lol
JoshWilding - 3/6/2010, 5:12 PM
Davis Cameron: Lol, cheers mate - much appreciated! Boreanez would make a great Drake (and Wonder Man!) and I actually thought that it was Roth who did the voice for Flynn when I played the game! I agree, he's perfect for that role! I know exactly what you mean about Bell..! ;D

LEE: Lol, last time for a while I promise! To be honest, I do it for two, because I cant make my bloody mind up, lol, and two because it makes a fairly small cast a bit bigger! :D

Yeah, Fillion would probably be my #1 choice as well! I just started watching Firefly (which is a great TV show!) and everything about him says Nathan Drake I'm really glad you like the rest of the cast as well bud, thanks a lot!

I hear they're planning on making the series into a movie with Avi Arad involved so hopefully they'd do the games (the second one is the best game I've ever played) justice! Anyway, back to Firefly!

joob234: Thanks man! :) I thought the exact same thing about Bridges as soon as I saw him in Iron Man! If only they could dub North's voice over Fillion...the perfect Nathan Drake, lol! He's done a huge amount of voice work but very little live action - he's had fairly small roles in TV shows like Ugly Betty, NCIS and Modern Family! I'd definitely give hima chance to play the live action version of the character though!

Lol, I really like Bell so we'll have to agree to disagree on that one while you're not wrong about Toro now I think about it! Roth is perfect for Flynn but if he were just a few years younger it would be even better - CGI is a great idea to help out with that though, good thinking! Among Thieves is probably my fabvourite game of all time! I'd love to see something as far out as Atlantis in the next game! I know it's quality rather than quantity but I wish the games were a little longer! They're just so bloody brilliant!!!

Lol, I have been doing one almost every day recently! To be honest, I can usually put one together within a day or two! I'm lucky to have the time to be honest as I took a year off school and when I go to uni in the Autumn I doubt I'll have the chance to do one a week!

When I decide to do a cast I usually start making notes of characters and actors I want to use, then I'll start writing that and the character bios out on Microsoft Word! After that I'll make the images, use something like ImageShack to upload them and then I'll put it all together with colours, fonts and the rest and eventually post it! I normally work on more than one at the same time though so I couldnt tell you exactly how long they take to least 6 or 7 hours overall maybe!

Anyway, glad you liked the cast man, thanks again!
InTylerWeTrust - 3/6/2010, 5:13 PM
Great, great cast.

If North got into shape, f*ck yes he should be Nate. It's unfortunate though, because I don't think he'd be able to do such an action oriented role, even though his voice is absolutely synonymous with the character, and it makes me sad to think about someone else's behind Nate :(

But, out of those 3, I'd probably go with Fillion.

Love the rest, and Bridges as Sully is especially brilliant. Hehe, I remember mentioning to you that Flynn seemed exactly like Roth once. He'd definitely be perfect for that part.
JoshWilding - 3/6/2010, 5:21 PM
TYLER: Thanks bud! I completely agree with you about North! It's hard to imagine Nate without his voice and I doubt any actor would be too happy having his voice dubbed over theirs, lol! ;D

I would be more than happy to give him the chance to play Nate - like you said though, it just depends whether he'd be able to handle a role like this! Fillion would also be my choice otherwise!

I thought that Bridges/Sully was a good fit so I'm glad you like that one! Haha, I completely forgot about that conversation until now - didnt we both think it was him who did Flynn's voice in the game? He'd definitely be perfect for the role anyway!
InTylerWeTrust - 3/6/2010, 5:24 PM
Hehe, yeah, I was like "You know, Flynn seemed so much like Tim Roth. He looked and sounded just like him." And you agreed, saying you thought the same thing. It was quite a coinky-dink.
Ryden - 3/6/2010, 5:40 PM
Great cast, it's funny you picked Tim Roth as Harry that pic I thought Flynn looked like Ed Norton.
SHHH - 3/6/2010, 5:40 PM
I like this alot!! original..Graham McTavish is perfect.. I loved him in Rambo..David Boreanez is Nathan Drake..Thumbs up from me.

Btw how do you do post the links??And did u check out my planet hulk??
THEHAWK - 3/6/2010, 6:09 PM
Holy shit.

I can't even comment. This is just so perfect! I don't have a single complaint!

Boreanez is perfect!!!

And Bell is amazing

I love em all!

HAWK out
JoshWilding - 3/6/2010, 6:36 PM
TYLER: Ah, that's it! Lol, well in that case YOU deserve some credit for planting the idea in my head all those months ago! That conversation must have stuck around in my mind somewhere! :P

Ryden: Cheers man! Well spotted - I didnt actually notice that, lol!

SHHH: Thanks dude! I didnt realise until I was putting the cast together that McTavish actually voiced the character in the game!!! How's that for a weird coincidence? As for links, hopefully THIS will help you! :)

tea: LMAO - that's good enough for me mate, thanks! :D Here's a trailer for the second game - it would make for one hell of a movie IMO!

THEHAWK: Thanks man, that's great to hear! Yeah, the more I think about it the more I like Boreanez in the role! I'd find it hard to choose between him and Fillion! Bell is a great actress (and an amazingly hot one, lol!) so I'd love to see her in a role like this!
joob234 - 3/6/2010, 8:13 PM
@josh: really? i thought the games were long enough, but i think i im getting at what your saying. theyre just so good you want it to go on forever lol. its funny, i'd take an uncharted movie if done right any day over indy 5 even though i love the indy franchise. i always thought of uncharted as basically indiana jones on crack lol!

o and i think you part of my post wrong, i wasnt talking about kristen bell for elena fisher, i was talking about jaime murray as chloe frazer, shes just not as hot as chloe is in the game.
MistressKizuna - 3/6/2010, 9:46 PM
A resounding "HELL YES!" for Nathan Fillion. He's just amazing.
AshleyWilliams - 3/6/2010, 9:54 PM
Once again,You do Awesome things.Your like the John Wall of Fan Casts!
DogsOfWar - 3/6/2010, 11:45 PM
Nice casting Josh. I'm not a gamer, other than the occasional Rock Band, but they all look the parts and are solid actors.

Man, I can't keep up with your castings. You are on a blistering pace right now.

Check out my latest article,Top Ten Sword, Sandals and Sorcery Movies of the Last Thirty Years , over at EMF. I'd like your opinion
rockingrich1webb - 3/7/2010, 2:00 AM
nailed it!!! \M/
ThunderCougarFalconBird - 3/7/2010, 3:40 AM
Josh - huge fan of the games and this cast is as close to perfection as you can get! Very nice job!
JoshWilding - 3/7/2010, 6:28 AM
joob234: Yeah, that's just it! Luckily though they're both so good they're worth playing again and again! And damn, I did read your post wrong I'm sorry! Even though I love these games I somehow managed to get mixed up between Chloe and Elena..! That's a fair point you make but after seeing her play a Chloe type character in Dexter, I think that Murray could pull it off! :) And I definitely think that she's hot enough...

MistressKizuna: I agree - the guy's a great actor and would definitely do the character justice!

NightAvenger4: Haha, thanks man! :D Any plans to do some more casts yourself?

DOGS: Lol, thanks bud! :) Every now and then I seem to realy get into making these casts! Heck, I'm working on 3 right now! I'll be sure to head over and check your article out as soon as I'm done here!

OZY: Thanks dude and thanks again for the idea of making this cast! As I've said above, North would be the best choice to nail the persoanlity of the character but it really depends on whether he'd be right for the live action side of things as well! And PS3 FTW!!! ;D

ANIL: It depends - are you reposting it? Because if you are, for some reason, it will go straight to the bottom of the others posted the same day. For example, if I reposted this tomorrow but there were 3 other cast there already, mine would go beneath them rather than on top! If you're posting it new though it should definitely go straight to the top! Anyway, I've just left a comment on your first fan fic (sorry it took so long!) and I'm heading over to your second one in a few minutes!

rockingrich1webb: Cheers man!

Ron: Thanks mate, much appreciated! :)
DDD - 3/7/2010, 8:09 AM
I've never played this video game but there
are a lot of video games I haven't played!
I like driving video games and Halo on

But this is a very well thought out fancast
Josh@! It makes me want to check it out!
I think my nephew has this!
I'm gonna check it out!
I know, I know, I'm a little out of the loop
where video games come into it! lol
AshleyWilliams - 3/7/2010, 9:13 AM
@Joshw-Yes,I'm doing a Teen Titans and a Justice fan-cast!
Talontd - 3/7/2010, 10:22 AM

Talk about a KICK-@SS casting! Dude, you get better and better with each one....time to move to Hollywood!!! Great Job! I'm in love with Jaime Murray from DEXTER, i've got a thing for crazy b!tches!!!
ThunderCougarFalconBird - 3/7/2010, 11:37 AM
DDD - it's well worth getting. You can buy the 1st game for the price of a strand of hair now! I got it not really knowing what it was, I wanted a new game, it was cheap and looked OK. I loved every element of the game.
JoshWilding - 3/7/2010, 7:14 PM
NightAvenger4: Looking forward to them!

DDD: Cheers mate! You should definitely check both games out (especially the second) as they're really something special!

Talontd: Thanks a lot bud - I really appreciate that! The crazy ones are always the hottest, lol! ;D

ANIL: That's weird man...its happenned to me once or twice actually - I cant help but wonder if one of the editors has a chip on their shoulder because I've hadmy stuff moved down fan fic and even reposted a day in the past! You should be able to edit your article once you've posted it and there's a date box where you can select the date to repost!
DDD - 3/7/2010, 7:22 PM
Thanks Ron@ for the info!
Josh@ I will check this game out ASAP!
I'm pretty sure my nephew has it so
I won't have to spend any "hair strand" money on it. lol
My nephew only lives a couple miles from me!
SHHH - 3/7/2010, 9:30 PM
@Joshw- U know Avi Arad has the movie rights to Drakes Fortune..
Kyatollah - 4/19/2010, 3:54 PM
Can't believe it took me this long to find this one.

Gotta say, I like your ideas. I did a fan cast for Drake's Fortune back in the message board's Golden Age. My picks were:
Drake- NATHAN FILLION, Chris Evans, Zachary Knighton or Josh Duhamel
Elena- Diane Kruger, Malin Akerman or Rosamund Pike
Sully- J.K. Simmons or Ted Levine
Eddy Raja- Ernie Reyes, Jr.
Roman- Malcolm MacDowell or TERRENCE STAMP
Flynn- Joseph Fiennes
Chloe- Rhona Mitra
Lazarevic- Dominic Purcell
Tenzin- Tony Jaa

I could see Kristen Bell pulling off Elena, and I love the idea of Jeff Bridges as Sully. Amaury Nolasco is okay, bur I can't see anyone but Ernie Reyes, Jr. as Eddy. Not familiar with Murray, Downes or McTavish, but Tim Roth circa Gridlock'd would've been the ONLY choice for Flynn.
MrBlondeeee - 7/25/2010, 5:43 PM
I think all the casting choices were ok but apparently this actor named "Samuel Brodie" is rumored to play role as Nathan Drake. I feel he fits the role perfectly for both look, age, and physicality more then these known actors. I found it on IMDB. The weird thing is that he was born January 5th where as Nathan Drake was born January 11th, their both 6'1", Nathan Drake is 25 yrs old in the first game where as Samuel Brodie is 24 but if filming were in 2011 he'd be 25 and they both look a lot alike. Another thing as well is Samuel Brodie has a crazy history of martial arts and free running. It was a destined role for this 24 yr actor.

Here's his page
fafafaf - 9/30/2010, 3:03 AM
I too am interested in this because pass4sure JN0-522 we have two people in my office who are completely different in their color blindness and it deals with the shading mostly (I think is how I understand it - they too have a hard time explaining to me).pass4sure 1z0-051 I created a palete of 4 colors where one sees the first pass4sure 642-533 two fine and the last two there is no difference for him and can't see them and visa pass4sure 350-050 versa for the other person.
LucasMend - 10/9/2010, 9:10 AM
Wow man nice cast here
Loved Nathan as Drake! Damn Jeff Bridges, Tim Roth, Anthony Hopkins, Benicio Del Toro and Terrence Stamp are perfect choices for the respective roles!
Great work man!
EddieOsborn - 1/21/2011, 2:07 PM
Damn you nailed it with Bridges and Hopkins as Sully and Schafer

Tim Roth is way too old to play Harry Flynn
john215 - 6/2/2011, 9:54 AM
Thank god finally someone with a head dude you rule i agree with u in every tiny detail. u know what when i first played this game i knew that Bridges was Born To Play Sully great Cast......P.s:you know who would be a hardcore Nathan Drake?.....Chris me about it that dude doesn't only have a similar face and voice but he is HARDCORE AND FUNNY SHIT at the same time(just like Drake)consider it.
