Yeah, and by going for the young route, it gives them a nice "ageless" quality.

Wow, I'm glad I never read that draft. I heard Balder was some kind of really old warrior in that draft, too.

Yeah, Balder in the first draft was much more like the mythological figure than the comic book character. Like in the myths he was older and married and he

I agree - the girls certainly no waif:-



At 5'9", she's quite the statuesque beauty - as is befitting a Norse Goddess. She should look quite good next alongside Hemsworth, I thinking. The two will compliment each other well; imagine what they'll look like in full costume - like they just stepped off the printed page.

Hopefully Sif at least has some cool scenes.
Yeah, I'm thinking they may approach Sif the way Teela was approached in 'Masters of the Universe' - occasionally getting involved in the action with a few lines to say but overall kinda just, well, there.

Those were my thoughts exactly when I looked at her IMDB page.

Lame. I know there's a mythological basis for it, but I'm quite attached to Marvel's version.

She was the High School chick who blackmailed Dennis into taking her to prom

It's been a while since I saw that episode. I don't even remember that. Hulu, here I come!

loved her work in kyle xy, glad to see she is doing more work since the show ended. She has some talent and not a bad looking girl either. Cant wait to see how she will look in costume.

Well this is a surprise. I thought Alexander was some obscure actress Hypesters love to suggest for roles but who would never land a big part. Of course, I thought the same thing about Hemsworth. Watching the casting for this movie is fun.

Never heard of her other than a few mentions in other casting threads. Then again... they could have casted Gina Carano. Still concerned about the no names. I don't know if there was a big time brunette actress out there that is young who could play a convincing Sif anyhow. Could have been worse though.

I know how you feel. It's exciting and fun for those of us following production to see these names plucked out of nowhere but how is this going to translate at the BO? Portman's the only big name so far...is there any other major role that can have a big name cast?

What an awful choice. Sif is supposed to be a fierce warrior and should look it. Alexander looks about as fierce as a cheerleader.

Little bit of trivia, she actually use to do wrestling, something tells me you won't have to worry about her coming across soft.

But Sif is also supposed to look impossibly beautiful. It's a tricky balance, sure, but I can understand them preferring not to veer too much onto the fierce, grizzled, muscular warrior woman end of the spectrum.

Are you serious? Acting should come first, and Jaimie is good. Secondly should be the looks, and Jaimie as Sif is gorgeous, and by no means is she a scrawny cheerleader size. Are we looking at the same woman?

But Alexander isn't incredibly beautiful either. She's tall and attractive but hardly anything special. She's basically the cutesy girl next door type. Who's going to play Enchantress, Hayden Panetierre?
