Star actor Pedro Pascal has been cast as the lead in the upcoming TV show recreation of The Last Of Us video game.
Pascal currently stars as the title character in Disney+ exclusive series The Mandalorian, a Star Wars spin-off.
He's been cast as Joel in The Last Of Us TV adaption, Deadline reported today.
The actress to play fellow lead character Ellie has also been revealed, as Game Of Thrones actress Bella Ramsey.
In the critically acclaimed video game, surly survivor Joel (Pascal) links up with fiesty 14-year-old Ellie (Ramsey) as they make their way across an apocalyptic US, battling for their lives against the zombie-esque infected and humans alike.
Sharing a tweet by Deadline, developer Naughty Dog shared its excitement at the news.
"Did we say we’re building out the cast? Thrilled to see Pedro Pascal join Bella Ramsey on the HBO series of The Last of Us," it tweeted.
Pascal was also in Game Of Thrones as Oberyn Martell; Ramsey played Lyanna Mormont in the same series.
