An interesting piece trivia for those wondering why Cutter didn't have a larger role in Uncharted 3. According to Nolan North's "Drake's Journal" book, Cutter was originally planned to appear in the entire game. The actor who played Cutter, Graham McTavish, had been cast to play the role of Dwalin on Peter Jackson's "The Hobbit". Long story short, his Hobbit schedule clashed with the mocap filming in the game. In the middle of production, McTavish had to go to New Zealand for filming and had only 5 days to complete mocap and ADR. As a result, Amy Hennig, the Creative Director, had to rewrite his role so he could be taken out of the picture early. Shame really, the character was great. Although, good on McTavish for landing a role on The Hobbit.
