The production cast another actor to play the role of another character, in addition to the characters from The Last of Us (which will be rerun on HBO).
We don’t know yet how far The Last of Us will diverge from the plot of its eponymous videogame. However, it was created by Craig Mazin (Chernobyl), and Neil Druckmann (one of the creative directors and writers of the license). The series will feature many characters from Naughty Dog games. We saw Joel (Bella Ramsey) and Ellie (Pedro Pascal), which was a good representation of their pixelated versions (at least from the front).
The rest of the cast will include Merle Dandridge, an actress from The Flight Attendant, who will play Marlene again, and Joel’s daughter Sarah, a young Nico Parker. (Dumbo). Gabriel Luna, an actor in Marvel: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., will play his part. Tommy Miller, Joel’s younger brother, will have his face painted by actor Gabriel Luna (Marvel: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.). Bill and Frank will be played respectively by Con O’Neill or Murray Bartlett. Anna Torv, a survivor who smuggles on the black market, will lend her facial to Tess.
Other characters were also created for the series’ needs, like Jeffrey Pierce (Castle Rock), Harry Bosch, and Perry, who will be playing a rebel named Perry. In an interview with AListProductions on YouTube we found out that Brad Leland (Deepwater and Le Bureau des Legendes), Veep, Friday Night Lights, and Veep) will be appearing in the credits for the first season. Fans will get to meet him in the first episode. It’s been a lot of fun.
According to the actor, he confirmed that he had completed scenes in Canada for HBO’s series. The actor didn’t provide any further details and there was no confirmation from production. However, IMDb has given the actor the role of Mr. Adler. His intentions are unknown. This first post-apocalyptic episode will have over 10 episodes.
Although no release date has been announced, it is expected that the series will finally reveal a teaser or trailer by 2022. This will allow fans to better prepare themselves for what lies ahead.
