Ever since it was announced that David O. Russell would be directing a big-screen adaptation of the video game Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, the online buzz has been that the role of the treasure-hunting descendant of Sir Francis Drake should go to Firefly's Nathan Fillion. And you know who agrees? Nathan Fillion!

Fillion recently tweeted to his 649,887 followers:

If ever there was a Twitter campaign, let this be it. Rise, ye Browncoats. Rise, ye Castillions. RISE!

So if you'd like to see Fillion end up on the big screen as a male Lara Croft, you know what you have to do about it.

Thomas Dean Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer, who co-wrote the new Conan, wrote the first draft of Drake's Fortune, which is expected to be rewritten by Russell before filming. Maybe with a certain Captain Tight Pants in mind?

What do you think? Should Fillion get the part?
