You just have to love when things play out like this.

Earlier this month, it was reported that David O. Russell would be writing and directing the latest attempt to adapt Sony Computer Entertainment and Naughty Dog video game Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune into a movie. This was exciting news for fans of the game who see how much potential there is for a great movie franchise, but who could play Nathan Drake?

As is, Drake is already a well-rounded and likable character, and all that’s needed is an actor who would be best fitted to bring him to life. At the end of our initial story, I made it pretty clear that they should just cast Firefly and Castle star Nathan Fillion immediately. This was all wishful thinking and came with little expectations of Fillion becoming a possibility, but apparently I am not alone in seeing how ridiculously perfect the actor is for the part.

Fillion made his thoughts on fans wanting him to play Drake clear on Twitter:

As far as fans are concerned, there is no thought to this. In many ways, Nathan Fillion IS Nathan Drake, and he would breathe so much life into that character and that movie that it would be an undeniably perfect casting.

But will Sony Pictures and the team behind making this decision see and hear the pleas of geekdom everywhere? This is where you come in!

If anyone working on the Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune project for Sony is reading, make this a reality! It shouldn’t take you long to realize how good of a match it is, and you wouldn’t even need to do an audition. Efficient!

For everyone else who needs this to happen, make your voices heard. Scream loud and often wherever you can to try and catch the attention of anyone who can make it happen. The louder the demand, the more likely the studio will take a good look at Mr. Fillion.

Check out this video of Nathan Drake one-liners, and then just imagine Fillion saying them. It’ll all make perfect sense.
