Didn't know that Townsend was still alive. Last time I saw him (and then immediatly forgot about him) was in LXG.

Never saw Rome except for the first Episode (which sucked), so I can't say anything about Stevenson

And the 3rd one: Never heard of him.

I guess I'll have to wait and see...

MMM, Variety and now also Marvel.com shut down the article about Warriors Three. It's kinda strange.

Asano is a fantastic actor. Watch Ichi the Killer or Mongol and you'll get what I'm saying.

Oh, and on the second season of Rome, Stevenson's character turned into a kind of comic relief. It worked just fine. So, i think he's gonna be OK as the "beefy warrior with some funny one liners".

Decent choices all of them. Still wondering who is playing Baldur?

I can work with this line up.

But what about Balder the Brave? Any word on whether or not he's in the film?

I just done see Stagg at all... he is very Brooding which is the very opposite of Volstagg and he isn't very Husky like Volstagg not to mention the lack of red hair lol
Yeah, dude, but this is a MOVIE. A little hair dye, POW! A fake beard, BANG! Some SFX, BOOM! And voila, Ray Stevenson as Volstagg. I'm officially pumped for Thor!

The article is finally back up on Variety (albeit, it has been rewritten)

Quote:
“Thor” helmer Kenneth Branagh has locked Stuart Townsend, Ray Stevenson, and Tadanobu Asano to play Warrior’s Three, a trio of Asgardian adventurers who fight alongside the Norse god in the Marvel Entertainment drama.

Townsend, who last wrote and directed “Battle in Seattle,” plays Fandral, a character which was drawn in the comic book series based on Errol Flynn and his movies. Stevenson, the “Rome” star, plays Volstagg the Valiant, a hard-living brawler, a character inspired by Falstaff. Asano, best known for starring in “Mongol,” plays Hogun the Grim, the third warrior and traveling companion of the hammer-swinging Thor, who is played by Chris Hemsworth.

Anthony Hopkins, Tom Hiddleston and Natalie Portman also star in a pic scripted by Mark Protosevich and Zack Stentz. Paramount Pictures releases the film May 20, 2011.

Stevenson, who’ll next be seen starring with Denzel Washington in “Book of Eli,” is currently shooting the Adam McKay-directed “The Other Guys” with Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell. He’s repped by WME, Townsend by UTA and Asano by CAA.

Who was he in Ichi the Killer? Ain't seen that for so long.

But I don't recommend that film to anyone of a squeamish disposition. Thoroughly sick and twisted.

He is Kakihara, the sadomasochistic chief henchman, that, with the rest of his mob goons, go looking for Anjo, the Yakuza boss who disappears with 300 million yen.

And yeah, it's a pretty messed up film.

Stevensen was on Rome HBO right?? Well he is tall, has a booming kinda voice with some make up he very easily pulls this off I imagine.


THe thing that does throw me off a bit is Hoggun being...Asian, I mean yeah he always had the Fu-man-chu Stash going, but I NEVER thought of the Grim on being Asian.

I think we shouldn't worry about Tadanobu Asano / Hogun's looks:

Not sure about the characters, but Stevenson and Townsend are great actors, so are 2 more excellent additions.

I was hoping for BRIAN BLESSED as Volstagg, but Stevenson should do well. Townsend is a very good choice, definitely looks the part, and Asano looks the part as well. Really, with Branagh at the helm, casting is the least of my worries for the film.
