This actor has sounded since he left the game because for many Joel it looks very similar in physical. Even in the movie Logan where Hugh Jackman looks older and has as a companion a young girl, many noted that there were scenes that recalled the game from Naughty Dog.

This actress that appears in IT Chapter 2 and I Am Not Okay With This Netflix is one of the favorites for the role of Ellie because as you can see, it looks with a face very similar and also has great talent.

And an option that is sounding very much to Joel is that of Gerard Butler, and although perhaps at first thought not seem to be the ideal, you can see that there are great similarities between the character and the actor.
