Consider this the big 'What the Hell!' news of the at least the past month. In an interview with MTV, Mark Wahlberg confirmed that he will be playing the lead role in David O. Russell's upcoming adaptation of Uncharted Drake's Fortune. To this expect plenty of fan outcry. While it's not the worst casting decision in the world, it's definitely not what fans were expecting, nor wanting.
It's rare that you find an actor so in tune with his devoted fans. It's also rare to find an actor who isn't afraid to parade his own fandom and nerdiness for all the world to see. Nathan Fillion has both of these fine qualities and is all the better for them. Since Firefly and Serenity, he's had a very devoted fan-base and with his new show Castle it just continues to grow. Well now he's trying to rally those loyal to help him land the role of Nathan Drake in the upcoming Uncharted: Drake's Fortune movie adaptation produced by Sony.
