Matthew McConaughey turned down the lead role in the Last of Us series

The HBO television network has not announced the full list of actors who will take part in the project. The ComicBook portal reports that Bella Ramsey will play the main character of Ellie, and Pedro Pascal will play the role of her companion and protector of Joel.

It is speculated that Bella was immediately cast as the 14-year-old orphan girl on the series. But in the role of Joel, the creators initially wanted to see Matthew McConaughey.

HBO contacted the Hollywood actor and offered the role of the brave man Joel, who must save Ellie from the infected area. An insider reports that McConaughey did not appreciate the proposals and declined.

The release date of the series is still unknown, with filming scheduled to begin in July.
