Look at all these casting directors GAF has. HOLY SMOKES!


What is even your point?
It's obviously my opinion.

Do you think that casting directors never make mistakes or do a shitty job?
Often times they'll also cast based on popularity and not based on whether they'll be the best fit for the role too.
I don't need to be a casting director to have an opinion on this the same way that I don't need to be a game dev to have opinions on games.

I hope they cast Dot Cotton as Abby in season 2.

Obviously helps that it's deepfaked but Pedro looks a brilliant casting for Joel to be honest.

And Bella actually looks close enough there as well.

I'm sold on Pedro but not on Bella so far

But let's be honest performance matters two so if these two had the best performances and most chemistry the the casting will work just fine.

There is no one that suits either role perfectly considering they are fictional characters.

Why have they cast a Down's syndrome person as Ellie? Wouldn't Ellie or Elliot Page have sufficed?

Could be very special this, I'm hoping for a really great show I can get into that has me speculating from week to week on what's going to happen. The games are so well written and acted, I'm excited.

Cringe and unprofessional behavior by studio heads that have continually kept multiplayer fans in the dark. Sony need to crack down on game dev social media pages big time
Not nearly as bad as reading your rage tweets on twitter.

I just re-watched "The Road" and this series has a lot to live up to in comparison. Very similar setting and themes.
If you adore the world of The Last of Us, but haven't seen "The Road", do yourself a favor.

Can we stop with the notion that they always have to look exactly like the characters they adapt?

Disagree. There might be some very few cases that it doesn't matter, but characters SHOULD look like the character they are adapting. Otherwise, we get in situations like Netflix.

You know damn well she doesn't have Down syndrome. It's pretty fucked up to keep saying that. How would you feel if people said that about you? Stop bumping the thread with this bullshit
If you wipe them tears from your eyes you'd see I wasn't the one bumping the thread so off you go.
