Nathan Drake to be Played by Mark Whalberg in Uncharted Movie

We have a very strange decision here folks. Most will be disappointed to hear that Nathan Drake will be played by Mark Wahlberg in the upcoming Uncharted movie directed by David O. Russel. Sure Nolan North, the voice of Nate would have been a good choice, but Hollywood isn't willing to gamble on an relatively unknown voice actor to star in a big budget Hollywood movie. Still, Mark Wahlberg is nothing like Nate. The looks, personality and voice are all completely different as I'm sure 99.9% of fans would agree. He made a good Max Payne, but a wisecracking hero? I think not. According to Mark Wahlberg, Robert DeNiro has been contacted to play Nate's father, while Joe Pesci is confirmed to play his uncle. They don't exist in the video game, so you can count on additional liberties taken with the story.

I heard that Nathan Fillion wanted the role. That would have been more appealing.
