Speaking with The Guardian, actor Murray Bartlett (The white lotus; Iron fist), who is set to play Frank on the show, may have inadvertently revealed Offerman’s involvement. ” It is co-created by Craig Mazin, who made Chernobyl. The scripts he wrote blew my head off. It’s an epic spectacle, yet beautifully human and intimate. We filmed it in Calgary. A lot of my scenes are with Nick Offerman. Playing with him was great. »
While Con O’Neill is expected to play Frank’s partner Bill, it’s fair to wonder if Offerman has been chosen to replace him or if he will play a whole new original character.
Pedro Pascal (The Mandalorian; Game of Thrones) et Bella Ramsey (Game of Thrones; Its dark materials) will headline the adaptation of the video game series as Joel and Ellie, respectively. Gabriel Luna (Terminator: Dark Fate; Agents du SHIELD) is the only other regular on the show, playing Joel’s brother, Tommy.
Meanwhile, in recurring and guest roles, Merle Dandridge (The stewardess; The Last of Us: Part II) will play Marlene, Jeffrey Pierce (stone castle; The last of us) will play Perry, Anna Torv (Spirit hunter; Fringe) will play Tess, Nico Parker (Dumbo; Reminiscence) will play Sarah, Murray Bartlett (August; The white lotus) will play Frank and Con O’Neill (Chernobyl; The batman) will play Bill.
The last of us is slated to debut in 2022.
