I was going to do some research, because I've never heard of this Nathan Drake. Then I realized he's some sort of video game character, and I decided to take a pass. I'll do what I can to help Nathan (I might even go see the movie if he gets cast), but I'm really not a video game person. Plus, National Novel Writers Month starts in November, and I'm neck deep in writing stuff.

He would be awesome! I think that he would bring a lot more of the humor to the part than Jackman as well (and have less off camera drama). Nathan Drake is rather based off of a young Harrison Ford and I can't think of a better current actor than Mr. Fillion to pull that off!!

The original "Uncharted: Drake's Fortune" leading man Nolan North wanted Hugh Jackman to portray Nathan Drake in the film adaptation, and now that David O. Russell is locked in to direct, the search is on. "Halo 3: ODST" star Nathan Fillion has his eyes on the part now, however, and he wants to start a movement.

"If ever there was a Twitter campaign, let this be it," Fillion wrote on his Twitter account Saturday. "Rise, ye Browncoats. Rise, ye Castillions. RISE!"

His message was followed by a link to a Deadline article and comment thread, where he encouraged his "Firefly" and "Castle" fans to mention his name. Unsurprisingly, many of them did, and it's now pretty much impossible to wade through the comments there without knowing that an organized Internet delegation wants Fillion cast in the movie.

And Russell could do a lot worse than Fillion if he and his casting team are looking around. He's got the personality and the look to carry the part, and most importantly to the studio he has a well-documented history of geek cred and video game interest. Never mind the fact that he already shares a first name with the story's hero.

If the producers like him as much as his fans seem to, it's entirely possible he could become the Betty White of video game movie casting history.

Here's a link:
