10 Actors Who Could Play Nathan Drake In The Uncharted Movie

10. Scott Eastwood

Warner Bros.

Scott Eastwood - son of Clint - certainly has that Nathan Drake look down to a tee, complete with rugged facial hair, overly bronzed skin and lean, muscular build.

The only concern here is his ability to carry a big movie. He's had a handful of small roles in everything from Suicide Squad to Gran Torino to Fury, but hasn't yet given us a standout performance that shows he can be a reliable leading man.

Despite that, though, Eastwood would be a fine choice. He's a rising star who's positively screaming out for a major breakout role, and with supporting turns in the upcoming Fast 8 and Pacific Rim 2 on his plate, he can surely handle himself in the blockbuster space. He was charming and playful in equal measure during The Longest Ride too, and even though that movie was terrible, he was one of the best things in it.

So yes, while Eastwood lacks experience in either carrying a franchise or leading one or two big-hitters, the same could've been said of Daniel Craig before Bond or Henry Cavill before Superman - and those two worked out fine.

Eastwood's a visual match for Drake and The Longest Ride showed he can bring the charm, and at just 30 years old, he'd be a solid pick if the studio were courting actors for a multi-picture deal.
