In a head scratching turn of events, Uncharted PS4 actor Todd Stashwick has joined ex-Naughty Dog employee Amy Hennig at Visceral Games in order to co-write the Dead Space developer’s upcoming Star Wars title. The actor – who is perhaps best known for playing Ash Murphy in Justified and Dale Malloy in The Riches – most recently starred as an as of yet unnamed character in Nathan Drake’s inaugural next-gen escapade.

Hennig ended her ten year tenure at Sony last month, and was quickly approached by EA Games to helm its upcoming sci-fi title. Earlier in the week, the luminary Tweeted a picture of herself sharing a breakfast meeting with Stashwick, as well as voice actor Nolan North and Lost star Dominic Monaghan. You can bet that George Lucas’ seminal series was probably on the menu at some point or other. Uncharted in space, anyone?
