Here’s a guide to the not mapped cast and how the characters relate to the video games of the same name. Directed by Ruben Fleischer from a screenplay by Rafe Judkins, Art Marcum and Matt Holloway, not mapped released in theaters in February 2022 after several years of production and pandemic delays. The film follows treasure hunter Nathan Drake, played by MCU star Tom Holland.
Years after leaving an orphanage, Nathan “Nate” Drake (Netherlands), now in his twenties, is working as a bartender in New York City when he is approached by Victor “Sully” Sullivan, a treasure hunter who asks Nate for help with recovering billions of dollars worth of Magellan’s lost gold artifacts. Nathan is intrigued, but he only joins Sully in an attempt to find his long-lost brother Sam, who disappeared on a mission with Sully and whom Nathan hasn’t seen in 15 years. Along with Chloe Frazer, Nate and Sully’s Indiana Jones-like adventure in not mapped is a race against time to get to the golden artifacts before another treasure hunter, Santiago Moncada, and his henchmen can reach them first.
The not mapped cast is filled with big names, including Antonio Banderas. Interestingly, Elena Fisher, a journalist who was central to the video games and later becomes Nathan Drake’s wife, is not in the live-action adaptation. Here’s a full guide to every person in the cast of not mappedthe filming of the film, what characters they play and how they compare to their video game counterparts, as well as what other notable projects the actors participated in before this film.
Tom Holland as Nathan Drake
headliner of the not mapped cast, Nathan Drake is a bartender who steals expensive things from bar patrons to make sure he has enough money. He is also a treasure hunter who travels the world to uncover mysteries, and the alleged descendant of Sir Francis Drake. Nathan is the main character of the not mapped video games, in which he is portrayed as a man in his thirties who is snarky and rugged, yet charismatic, with a light-hearted demeanor. He is voiced by Nolan North in the games, but is played by Tom Holland in the live-action film.
Although he looks quite similar in appearance, the Dutch Nathan Drake clearly differs from the behavior of the games. Probably due to Tom Holland’s age (26) and the fact that his most recognizable role is that of an often naive high school student in the MCU Spider Man franchise, his version of Nathan Drake is much less gruff than his video game counterpart, bringing more boyish than shaggy charm. Holland is best known for playing Peter Parker/Spider-Man in the MCU, in which he starred in Spider-Man: Homecoming, Spider-Man: Far From Homeand Spider-Man: No Way Home. The actor also starred in Anthony and Joe Russo’s Cherry, The devil all the time, Chaos walking, The Lost City Z, Captain America: Civil Warand Avengers: Infinity War. He also voiced Ian Lightfoot in Pixar’s Forward.
Mark Wahlberg as Victor “Sully” Sullivan
Victor “Sully” Sullivan is a skilled treasure hunter who recruits Nathan for the mission to recover gold artifacts. Sully also previously worked with Nathan’s brother Sam before disappearing. In the not mapped video games, Sully is essentially Nathan’s mentor and father figure, his partner in crime when it comes to treasure hunting. The pair met when Nate was 15 in the games and have been working together ever since. However, unlike the live-action iteration, Sully is older, with gray hair and a mustache, and usually smokes a cigar.
In the movie not mapped cast, Sully is played by Mark Wahlberg, although, interestingly enough, before he played Sully, Wahlberg was actually supposed to play Nate Drake. Similar to Holland’s Drake, Wahlberg’s Sully is a younger, less gray version of his video game character. Wahlberg brings a jadedness to the role of Sully that comes across well from the games, but feels just as boyish and energetic than the original Sully. This is also likely due to Wahlberg’s acting resume, which includes: Boogie nights, The fighter, the deceased, Ted, The other guys, Date night, The beautiful bones, The Italian job, Pain & gain, Transformers: The Last Knight, and Transformers: Age of Extinction.
Sophia Ali as Chloe Frazer
Chloe Frazer is also a treasure hunter and adventurer. She is an associate of Sully’s and a love interest of Nathan Drake’s, helping them both on their hunt for the gold artifacts. In the not mapped video games, Chloe is tough and the opposite of Nathan in personality. She is initially someone who only pursues her own personal interests, but eventually evolves to look beyond herself. Of all the characters in the movie not mapped cast, Chloe is most similar in personality to her video game counterpart. In the film, she is played by Sophia Ali, who is best known for her roles in the long-running TV series Grey’s Anatomy, fakethe original Amazon series the wildernessand the indie movie Indian sweets and spices.
Rudy Pankow as Samuel “Sam” Drake
Nathan Drake’s older brother Sam Drake is a fellow treasure hunter who has worked with Sully before and never came back for his brother as promised. In the games, Sam is only a prominent figure in Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, having spent some time in prison. In the Uncharted movie, Sam is played by Rudy Pankow, who does an excellent job of capturing the protective and inspirational role Sam plays in Nate’s life. Pankow is best known for his role as JJ in the Netflix series outer banks. Pankow has also guest-starred in TV shows such as To resolve and the politician.
Tiernan Jones as young Nathan
Tiernan Jones plays the younger version of Nathan Drake, who goes on a treasure hunt with Sam before being abandoned at the orphanage. Like Sam, young Nate is not hugely present in the not mapped video game franchise, but Jones plays the part well. He is best known for playing Joey in the now-cancelled TV series Diary of a future president.
