The Last of Us is one of the most famous video game franchises of all time. Hence when the TV adaptation was announced a few years ago, a lot of fans got really excited, and had high expectations for the series. The early fan casting for the show of course began with the game’s original cast, as everyone loved Troy Baker as Joel. He will be returning to The Last of Us universe to play a completely different role.

In the new teaser trailer for The Last of Us episode 8, we see Ellie being chased by a group of cannibalistic hunters, which also matches the game’s storyline. Baker will make his debut in the episode as James, a hunter from the group and looks like he doesn’t want Ellie to join as she will be just “another mouth to feed.”

Baker is currently working on the upcoming video game Death Stranding 2, as well as the animation that will arrive later this year: The Legend of Vox Machina. He is also the host of the official The Last of Us podcast released weekly by HBO on YouTube.
