you'd have casted him but you don't even know his name? only who he has played? ok then lolI think Ellie casting fine. But Instead of Pedro Pascal I would have casted Jaime Lannister as Joel. He looks like him and a good actor to boot.
Not to mention Ellen Page has started to lose her very young looks some time before the sex change. Playing a teen while being a 33+ year old would be a big stretch.Unfortunately Ellen Page doesn't exist anymore.
Maybe if Ellie becomes trans in TLoU3 Elliot would be available.
Well if they aren't going to try and stay faithful to the source material, why bother??I love how some put pictures of actors that look like Ellie/Joel and say thats a much better fit. How the fck would you know, for you its only based on the looks.
I think they want new audience (not only gamers) and a lot of people (of that new HBO audience) wont even know who Joel/Ellie is. In the end its all about good acting, being able to deliver on that part.
I didnt know your from the future and already watched the show, btw who won the Stanley cup in 2023? Is Toronto still an embarrassment? Did Big Dick Dubois resign with the jets? Is Mcgregor still on cocaine?interesting. what kind of excuses people will find to justify the bombing of this tv series?
what a totally shite cast for Ellie. it was not possible to cast worst than this.
Bad choice for her and the studio.
She was good in game of thrones but we all liked Ellie as she was a sweet 14 year old girl that had a bit of fight in her but I just don't see it this actress.
Its very difficult to cast from video games as we already know what the person looks and sounds like whereas a book is our imagination.
no cares for that when the Pedro guy comes in? did you knew that Pedro is best Duckman's boyfriend? Pedro is leftist, supports trans movement and community and supports progressive thinking and so on. no one will cancel even if you are making offensive tweet, not like Gina Carano.With her mouth closed...still off but with visible teeth she looks like a chipmunk, not even close to Ellie. This is one thing I hate about Hollywood. They always go for actors that are currently on a high for new roles instead of going for an actor that is not only good but actually looks the part. Pedro is good actor...kinda has some looks I guess but he is tiny, at least in all roles he cant get that mexican accent off. I highly doubt he will pull of an american farmer accent. Was it that difficult to hire someone like this that is A: an awesome actor and B: looks the part? :
I see people freaking out for some casting choices before they get a chance to see how the role is handled at all... This is pretty bad (and not limited to video games movies)... and well, the girl is a kid, which is pretty much what you would want if they are to retell the first movie.Until we see footage you can't know whether she can pull it off or not. She must have done something right to be cast.
