The Last of Us' Latest Survivor Is Cranky but Cool

Not sure Ellie likes him, though
Naughty Dog’s upcoming The Last of Us might well be set in a post-apocalyptic world, but it’s still populated by plenty of survivors. One such character is Bill, a crotchety old man who seems to have an appreciation for gas masks.
In this brand new cinematic, the newcomer is heard sprinting from hordes of the infected alongside protagonists Joel and Ellie. Naturally, he’s not too pleased about the duo breaking into his safe house with the undead in tow. But after handcuffing the teenage girl to a drainpipe – and taking a blow to the face for his troubles – it becomes clear that the grumpy old-timer owes Joel a favour. He grudgingly agrees to repair a car for the pair, and the three embark on a quest to recover spare parts from across the city.
Bill is played by W. Earl Brown, who has starred in multiple movies such as Scream and Vanilla Sky. We’re already looking forward to his inevitable banter with the loveable Ellie. Check out the new footage below.
