Fan Asks Director David O. Russell to Cast Nathan Fillion in UNCHARTED

     December 20, 2010

Back in October, we reported that actor Nathan Fillion had begun a Twitter campaign to get himself the lead role in David O. Russell’s adaptation of the video game Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune.  Last month, we learned that the role had gone to frequent O. Russell collaborator, Mark Wahlberg.  However, it looks like no one told Fillion fan, “gregblessing27″, as he asked Russell point blank to cast Fillion.  While I agree that Fillion would be a better choice for the role than Wahlberg, O. Russell clearly feels comfortable in his relationship with Wahlberg and Sony, the studio behind the film and the game, probably prefers to have an actor with Wahlberg’s name recognition attached to the project.

Of course, it’s unknown if Uncharted will be O. Russell’s next project as he’s also considering Old St. Louis and The Silver Linings Playbook.  Hit the jump to check out the video and be uncomfortable.  O. Russell’s new film, The Fighter, is currently in theaters and you should check it out even though it doesn’t star Nathan Fillion.
