Nolan North “Ready to Suit Up” for Uncharted 5 Given the Opportunity
Chatting with GamesRadar, series stalwart Nolan North admitted he’s “ready to suit up” for Uncharted 5 should the opportunity present itself.
In town to promote his role in Alan Tudyk’s web series Con Man, conversation inevitably turned to Naughty Dog’s flagship adventure series, at which point North was quizzed about his thoughts on the possibility of reprising as Nathan Drake after A Thief’s End.
“I’m not happy that Uncharted’s ended, but if they said ‘Hey, we want to do Uncharted 5. Do you want to do Nathan Drake or should we ask somebody else?’ I’d be like ‘No, no!’. It’s very bittersweet. It was something that was very special to me. It was seriously the best job I’ve ever had. It opened doors, it made me a better actor. It is my big break, so to speak.”
North then quickly touched base on Sony’s gestating movie adaptation, before stating that he’s “ready to suit up” for another game.
“And that’s why I think the things about the films are always questionable. Because I’m an on-camera actor but possibly too old? But then they talk about Mark Wahlberg, who’s about my age, and it’s a complex situation. But if they were gonna do another game… I’m not gonna be the guy holding out for more, I’m the guy who’s ready to suit up.”
Do you believe Naughty Dog and Nolan North will reunite for a fifth mainline Uncharted game further down the line? Incidentally, October 31 also marks North’s birthday, making him a shoo-in for our latest episode of This Day in PlayStation History.
