Good grief that's abysmal casting... What next? Tom Cruise as Master Chief, Jim Carey as Solid Snake?.
Both of them would be lucky to have either actor take the role. Tom Cruise would sell a Halo movie by himself, even though it would be basically only his voice. So idk where that bitching comes from. Jim Carey basically does comedy. Tommy actor is just hispanic. In what way does that effect his performance? Just give him blonde hair.

Director doesnt have to do a 1:1 replica of the game. We had bitching that TLOU was already a movie. Didnt need one. Now people want a 1:1 replica they were never going to get.

this thread is why im fucking glad TV casting for video games isn't left to the nerdy video game fans who know nothing about casting. :messenger_grinning_squinting:

yall would just cast on looks alone and completely ignore acting ability.

First off, Joel isnt even white in the show, and tommy is his brother.

Uh, well that's kinda weird. Why?
I mean probably for the same reason they had actors for Max Payne but still cast Mark Wahlberg, you aren’t bringing the larger audience in with weird actors and face models in a multimillion dollar production that doesn’t care about nerds. Shit, they literally politicized taskmaster.

Just give him blonde hair 😂😂😂😂

It's called authenticity and likelihood to the games, Tommy is as American as you can get it's shit casting just like the guy who is playing Joel.

Seriously are you Druckmann??

Also in regards to Jim Carey does comedy no shit sherlock it's called sarcasm.

But if you honestly think Jimmy would make a good Snake you crack on with whatever the fuck you're smoking 😂
