It looks like another actor has joined HBO’s The Last of Us.
A new listing on IMDb suggests that actor Brendan Fletcher has joined the series’ cast as Robert, one of the first antagonists to cross Joel and Tress’ path in the game. Robert is an arms dealer and one of the first antagonists in the game who owed guns to Joel and Tess but ended up selling them to the Fireflies.
Filming on HBO’s The Last of Us is currently underway in Calgary, Alberta. Production has been ongoing since July, with reports suggesting it won’t wrap until June 2022. The series is being produced by Naughty Dog Studios, the studio behind the hugely successful video games. The Last of Us stars Pedro Pascal as Joel who is tasked with helping to escort Bella Ramsey‘s Ellie out of the quarantine zone in a post-apocalyptic United States.
Fletcher is perhaps best known for the Rampage series, Arrow and his performance in Iñárritu’s The Revenant.
While a release date has not yet been announced, The Last of Us may hit HBO Max late in 2022. Of course, with a rich world to bring to life – one that includes a fair share of zombies – it’s possible the series could see a 2023 release. For now, fans can get excited knowing The Last of Us is one step closer to coming to life.
