Nick Offerman Joins 'The Last of Us' Live-Action Cast as Bill

Naughty Dog has now confirmed that Parks and Recreation star Nick Offerman will be joining the live-action adaptation of The Last of Us as Bill.

According to Variety, Offerman will be starring alongside Murray Bartlett, who’ll portray the role of Frank, as the two survivalists live in solitude in their own isolated town. Chernobyl actor Con O’Neill was originally cast as Bill but had to back out after scheduling conflicts, ultimately leading to Offerman’s involvement.

Offerman and Bartlett will be joined by both Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey — who will be playing the series’ two main characters Joel and Ellie — as well as Gabriel Luna as Tommy, Nico Parker as Sarah, and Merle Dandridge as Marlene.

Unfortunately, there’s no precise release date yet for The Last of Us‘ live-action series, but it’s expected to arrive on HBO in 2022. Fans of the franchise should definitely stay tuned for more updates to come.
