A couple of weeks ago, Eric Ladin, the voice and mocap actor for Cole McGrath, tweeted he would be reprising his role as the inFamous hero in an unnamed project. Today, he has tweeted that project is PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, and he even said that Uncharted’s Nathan Drake and Metal Gear’s Snake will be in the game as well. While he didn’t mention the later two by name, he mentioned Nolan North and David Hayter, which is damn close enough. Sony has yet to announce whether all three will be in the game or not. Thanks, IGN.

According to Nolan North, who was a guest on the latest OPM UK podcast, the voice of Nathan Drake himself stated that Hugh Jackman is on top of the list of actors to play the swashbuckling hero in the Uncharted film.
Stating that he himself would like to be cast as Drake, North admits that just having a part in the film would be enough.
“I would love to do the movie, obviously I’d love to do it as Nathan Drake, but I’ve done film and television and I understand the reality of the business,” he said.
“Jackman is who I’d like to see. I think the producers would like to see Jackman too, because he has that tough guy exterior, but there’s also a lot going on behind his eyes. A lot of emotion and sensitivity on that brusque exterior, and he has great comic timing. He’s a phenomenal actor.
“I just hope I get a part on the movie so I can work with Hugh.”
Loads of Uncharted fans have stated since the beginning that if a film were made of the game, they’d prefer Firefly and Serenity star Nathan Fillion, if only because he looks the part.
Guess we’ll find out once a decision is made.

Naughty Dog’s Amy Hennig has reiterated to D’toid that folks may not have seen the last of Nathan Drake.
Speaking with the site via an interview, the Uncharted 2 creative director said that as long there’s still a demand for our swashbuckling hero, it’s a possibility.
“There is no limit to how many games we could make, as long as people still want to see more adventures with Nathan Drake,” she said. “Obviously, none of us want to wear our welcome out, but we are still having a lot of fun with it, and we think there is a lot of untapped possibilities there.
“Certainly we will be exploring that some more.”

Uncharted 2′s co-lead designer, Richard Lemarch, has said that the developers looked to action films with real-style heroes when creating and honing Nathan Drake.
This new direction led to a character you can identify with more as he is a bit of an everyman instead of someone with “precise Ninja powers”.
“We took new directions in our approach to storytelling. It led us to take an approach that was different from what most games take,” Lemarch told VentureBeat. “As a character, Nathan Drake is quite different from other video game characters. He is recognizable as a regular guy. That was important for us. We wanted him to be a fallible hero — that was common as a thread in all of the pulp fiction we looked at. Our research for the original Uncharted took us all the way back to the beginnings of adventure storytelling.
“We looked at Robert Louis Stevenson and Robinson Crusoe. We zeroed in on early 20th century stories like Doc Savage, who was a finely honed physical specimen. That led us to heroes like Tintin. There you get more color in the characters, and more globetrotting in the stories. We looked at John Mclane from Die Hard.
“They’re not highly physically trained, but more regular guys who fight in a sloppy way. They don’t have precise Ninja powers.”
Lemarch goes on to discuss other things regarding the series, Uncharted 2, and weighs in on the Lara Croft comparisons.
