Variety first reported the recast. It was later confirmed on social media by Last of Usdeveloper Naughty dog. O’Neil had a scheduling conflict, so Offerman will play Bill alongside Murray Bartlett who plays Frank. The relationship between Bill and Frank was not shown on-screen in The Last of Us. This means that the show will be filling some of the gaps left by.
