Uncharted Voice Actor Nolan North Can’t Picture Mark Wahlberg As Sully
It looks like we aren’t the only ones having trouble picturing Mark Wahlberg as Sully in the upcoming Uncharted movie adaptation. Having been attached to the film for a few years now – Sony is the Square Enix of movies, after all – the Transformers star went from being cast as Nathan Drake to instead taking on the role of the character’s mentor, Sully. Now, another person that is particularly familiar with the Uncharted series has weighed in on the controversial casting.
Nathan Drake voice actor Nolan North recently tried to survive Resident Evil 2 in a recent video for RETRO REPLAY. During the video, revealed that he’s looking forward to The Last of Us TV adaptation more than he is the Uncharted film, partially because he can’t see Mark Wahlberg as Sully. “I think the fact that they’re gonna make it [The Last of Us] a series is way better than making a movie out of anything,” North said. “I think having the guy who did Chernobyl is the frigging elephant in the room that you need to get things done. I’m more excited about that – I gotta be honest – than I am about an Uncharted movie.
I love Mark Wahlberg but I don’t see him as Sully. I just don’t see that as Sully.”
For those unfamiliar, the upcoming Uncharted film adaptation will include the first meeting between a young Nathan Drake and Victor Sullivan, which will inevitably turn into some interesting thrill-rides if the video games are any indication.The good news is that if the movie keeps getting delayed, Mark Wahlberg will at least start to look more the part of Sully.
