IF THE TEAM BEHIND THE LAST OF US LIVE-ACTION SERIES MAKES A CERTAIN SUGGESTION, GAEL GARCÍA COULD BE TOMMY ON THE SHOW
Little by little, HBO Max’s live-action series The Last of Us continues to advance. Even some of the names of the actors who will participate in it are already known.
The ones that resonated the most are those of Pedro Pascal in the role of Joel, and Bella Ramsey in that of Ellie. But we still have to meet many artists who could participate in this long-awaited production. And there is a role that could be left to the renowned Mexican actor Gael García Bernal.
COULD GAEL GARCÍA HAVE THE ROLE OF TOMMY IN THE SERIES?
It should be noted that this is not official information. In fact, it cannot be classified as rumor either. But if it reaches the right ears it would mean a lot.
What happens is that a fan of the game, @DootDootYeah, asked a question on Twitter to actor Jeffrey Pierce.
He was the one who played one of the characters in it, Tommy Miller, who appeared in both the first installment of the series and the second. This person questioned you on various issues.
So he asked her, ‘How did you get the role of Tommy and how do you feel about him as a character and the best experience playing him?’ Later, he added, “And also, what actor would you like to see to embody him in the HBO series?”
Pierce first replied ‘I auditioned for Joel, but Troy Baker came in and IT WAS Joel.’ He went on to say ‘@Neil_Druckmann reminded me when they came to Tommy and offered me [the role]. The rest is history. ‘
A TIP TO THE BIRTHDAY CAST OF THE LAST OF US
It was after that that Pierce suggested who Tommy might be in The Last of Us series. ‘Gael García Bernal, assuming they go after someone Latino. Or a Latin woman. And I mean it 100% sincerely. Aunt ‘Tommy’ Tomasina, ’he declared.
In the story, this character hails from Texas, a border state with Mexico. So it wouldn’t be very difficult for him to be Latino. Although much of this depends on the work schedule of this actor.
At least Neil Druckmann already knows that Gael García Bernal is Jeffrey Pierce’s ‘candidate’. Let’s see if they happen to listen to you.
Druckmann is in charge of the script for The Last of Us series, and is also one of its producers.
More likely, more actors and actresses will be revealed for roles in this show, one of HBO Max’s great exclusives, in the months to come. As always, you have to stay tuned.
