Troy Baker On The Last Of Us 2: Of Course I’d Come Back

Naughty Dog is on record saying the possibility of a sequel to The Last Of Us is "50/50."

But if it does happen, at least one of the major actors is definitely on board. It's Troy Baker, who played leading man Joel in the award-winning PlayStation 3 exclusive. During a recent IGN interview , Baker said he's drawn to Naughty Dog because they tell excellent stories and aren't just out for more money:

"Of course [I'd come back]. What I love again is they're not going to tell a story if they don't have one to tell. The Last of Us is not a money grab. If there's a role for me in something in the future to do with The Last of Us, absolutely I would do it, twice on Sunday."

Baker added that he really loved the recently released Left Behind DLC , saying it was "two of the best hours of gameplay that I've had in a long time." Well, since TLoU came out, right Troy? And we wholeheartedly agree, as per our own assessment. As for who will play Joel in the upcoming movie , well…that'll be an interesting casting challenge.

However, since the story of Joel is done, according to Naughty Dog, would his voice suit a new character in the same universe? Joel's voice is strong and distinct

You should go check out Troy on IMBD. He can do alllll kinds of different characters. He's in loads of different video games.

if they do another Last of Us i figure Joel, would be in it, albeit not as a main character. Have him in a role similar to Tommy or Bill
