Troy Baker, the actor who played Joel in both The last of us And The last of us part 2has expressed interest in returning to the role as The last of us part 3 becomes reality. It’s currently unknown what PlayStation developer Naughty Dog is working on next. Although some rumors and reports over the past few months have suggested that the next game will be from the studio The last of us part 3, those in charge at Naughty Dog have been coy about what’s next. Anyway, if Part 3 should happen, Baker has already made it clear that he wants to be involved in any way possible.
Talking to ComicBook.com’s The last pods podcast, Baker said he would be very open to the idea of coming back to play Joel in a future The Last of Us project. Although he emphasized that he has no idea whether there will be a new sequel The last of us part 3 ever come, Baker said he would definitely try to return as long as writer and director Neil Druckmann wanted him back in some capacity.
“My whole thing is this, and people are always asking, ‘Is there one coming The last of us part 3?’ I have no idea. No idea. I didn’t know there was going to be one Part IIBaker said. “But if Neil has a story he wants to tell, and he wants me to be a part of it in any way, I’ll be there seven days a week and twice on Sunday. I would absolutely follow him, and I followed him to the gates of hell and back, and I bought ice cream.”
The only complicated part in which Baker plays Joel The last of us part 3 is that his character was largely written out following the events of Part 2. As such, if Joel came back The last of us part 3, it would probably be in a way many fans wouldn’t expect. Still, if Druckmann has an idea that Joel would feature prominently in Part 3it’s good to know that Baker would love to play the character again.
If The last of us part 3 happens, would you like to see Baker return to play Joel? And when do you think we’ll hear more about Naughty Dog’s next big PlayStation 5 project? Let me know in the comments or message me on Twitter at @MooreMan12.
