Among the video game adaptations to movies or TV series that have generated the most expectation in recent years, the series The Last of Us begins to enter, which promises not only to bring the experience of the game to the small screen, but also to expand the original story. The production recently gave a lot to talk about, since it was finally revealed to the actors who would give life to the protagonists of the adventure. However, most of the cast remains a mystery and one of the game’s voice actors has just nominated an actor to play one of the main characters.
While PlayStation Productions and HBO have already revealed the actors who will play Ellie and Joel in the long-awaited The Last of Us series , it appears that there is still a long way to go to meet the remaining cast.
However, like the fans, the actors who participated in the development of the game also have their favorites and one of them is Jeffrey Pierce, the actor who voiced Tommy Miller, brother of Joel Miller, in the game.
The voice actor who has also appeared in series such as Call of Duty and Medal of Honor was questioned via Twitter by a fan about how he got the character and who he would like to play him on the television series.
JEFFREY WANTS TO SEE GABRIEL GARCÍA BERNAL AS TOMMY MILLER
Jeffrey curiously recalled that he had originally auditioned for the role of Joel Miller, but that in the end Troy Baker stayed with him and later mentioned that he would love for Mexican actor Gael García Bernal to play Tommy Miller, assuming the production will opt. by Latino actors (take into account that Pedro Pascal, who will play Joel Miller, is Latino).
But the voice actor did not stop there, as he even spoke about the possibility of the character adapting to a Latin female role, thus becoming Aunt “Tommy” Tomasina.
Of course, this does not mean that Gael García will play Joel’s brother in the TV series The Last of Us , since it is clear that the voice actor only mentioned his favorite actor to play him and has no influence on the choice of actor who in the end it will give life, since the last word would be had by Neil Druckmann and Craig Mazin, in charge of the creative direction of the adaptation. However, it is interesting to know which is the preferred actor to keep the role of the character according to his voice actor. We will keep you informed.
I auditioned for Joel, but Troy Baker walked in and WAS Joel. 🙂 @Neil_Druckmann kept me in mind when they got to Tommy and offered it to me. Rest is history. Gael Garcia Bernal, assuming they go Latino. Or a Latina woman. And I mean that 100% sincerely. Aunt "Tommy" Tomasina. 😉
