There has been much debating on the internet as to who would most successfully play the role of our beloved character in the video games industry, Nathan Drake. Names like Nathan Fillion and Mark Wahlberg have come and gone, but we now finally know who will play that role. It’s none other than Tom Holland.
This bit of information came via a tweet from Geoff Keighley, creator and host of The Game Awards:
Tom Holland might not look like he’s built for the part, but there is no denying that he is the perfect actor to play the role of Nathan. His constant remarks to himself and witty chirps is something we can easily see Holland fill the shoes of. The movie will launch in the holidays next year December, which sounds like the perfect holiday adventure to go on.
It was rumoured as far back as 2017 that he might play the role. Hopefully this is one video game to movie adaption that they get right.
