Some Fanboy Begs David O. Russell to Put Nathan Fillion in Uncharted Movie

I like Nathan Fillion. He’s cool. I’m a big fan of Slither. But, fanboys, you need to shut the f–k up about having David O. Russell cast him as Nathan Drake in the Uncharted movie. Here’s a secret: most people don’t know who he is, and so it’s sorta silly to expect a major studio to make him the star of a big-budget action movie. I’m not going to say Mark Wahlberg is a better choice, but, goddamn, can you nerds think outside of your nerd box for like five minutes every once in a while? I think you probably can’t, but I can hope.

The reason I bring this up is because some tool decided to, after a screening of Russell’s amazing The Fighter in LA, beg the director to put Nathan Fillion in the Uncharted movie as Nathan Drake. Enjoy the awkwardness.

This guy has played “every” Uncharted game and is basically illiterate. Yeah, he should be in charge of blockbuster action movie casting.

I agree Nathan Fillion would be a better choice than Marky Mark. I also don’t have a problem with someone telling the director what’s up. What does this guy have to lose?

Good on this guy!

Well, he made himself look dumb on the internet. It was just a weird and awkward thing to do.
