Mark Wahlberg Cast as Nathan Drake in Uncharted Movie

We've been keeping our eye on the potential for an movie franchise based on one of the most cinematic games of all-time, Uncharted, but this looks like it might be the first signs of life in this rumor.

Mark Wahlberg, producer of Entourage and Boardwalk Empire, and star of such movies as The Departed, The Italian Job, and Max Payne, has confirmed to MTV that he has been cast as Nathan Drake, the lead role, in the upcoming Uncharted film. Not only did he confirm that, but he confirmed rumors that the crew was looking to cast Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci in support roles for the film.

We personally love the pick, as he not only has the look of Drake, but also the right amount of quirkiness mixed with bad-assness. Check out our comparison below and let us know how well you think the two guys match up.
