Another The Last of Us Voice Actor Joins the HBO Cast, but Won’t Reprise Their Character | IGN

The voice of Tommy in The Last of Us, Jeffrey Pierce, has been cast in HBO’s upcoming Last of Us TV series but he won’t be playing Tommy.

That’s due in part because Gabriel Luna was cast as Tommy earlier this year. Instead, Pierce will play someone named Perry, a rebel in a quarantine zone, according to Deadline. Murray Bartlett and Con O’Neil have been cast in the series alongside Pierce today, too.

Bartlett guest stars as Frank while O’Neill guest stars as Bill, a couple that Deadline describes as “two post-pandemic suvivalists living alone in their own isolated town.” Anyone that’s played The Last of Us knows Bill is the man Joel and Ellie visit in the booby-trapped town of Lincoln shortly after leaving Boston.

In the game, he lives alone, although it’s clear he’s quite saddened by the death of his partner, Frank. It seems Frank is still alive in HBO’s Last of Us series considering O’Neill has been cast to play him.

Perhaps we’ll witness the events that lead to Frank’s death in the game in this series or perhaps, Frank will survive and he and Bill will live happily ever after (although the world of The Last of Us is not known for being so happily ever after).

We’ll learn more about Pierce’s Perry when The Last of Us series hits HBO sometime in the future. Production for the series kicked off this month and it will see Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey in the roles of Joel and Ellie, respectively. Luna will play Joel’s brother, Tommy, while Nico Parker will play Joel’s daugher Sarah.

While Pierce won’t be reprising his role as Tommy in the series, there is a Last of Us voice actor that will reprise their in-game role in the show. It was announced back in May that Merle Dandridge will repirse the role of Firefly leader Marlene.
