Recently, Jensen Eccles, best known for playing Dean on Supernatural, revealed that he really wanted to play Joel on HBO’s The Last of Us.
The actor liked the play very much, so he auditioned for the role of the main character. Eckles noted that he tried very hard to get into the role, but it ended up going to Pedro Pascal. Jensen admitted that he knew deep down that he was unlikely to get the part.
I’m sure the fans would be interested to see what Jensen would look like in Joel’s role. Perhaps the actor is too young for the role, since the fictional Joel was over 50 years old.
The series will premiere on HBO Max on January 15, 2023. There will be ten episodes in the first season.
