A Nerd Accosts David O. Russell to Cast Nathan Fillion in ‘Uncharted’

by Cas Ruffin on Dec 20th, 2010

A Firefly loyalist recently approached David O. Russell, director of The Fighter, to replace Mark Wahlberg for Nathan Fillion in his upcoming film, Uncharted. I love Firefly as the next guy, but I know that I’m in no position to give advice to a director on decisions that have million-dollar consequences.

Also, as a Nathan Fillion fan, I wouldn’t put the guy through something as damaging as a David O. Russell film. Russell is a notoriously abusive director and whatever movies he makes is not worth the hell he puts hundreds of people through. So to the nerd, take your crusade elsewhere. I’m sure there are definitely some directors out there who’d be glad to have Nathan Fillion without requiring him to walk through hot coals.
