Here's another Loki idea: Tim Roth.
I said gary oldman as loki not thor.
No one has any thoughts on Jouko, huh?
ONE PROBLEM WITH KARL URBAN:
I noticed that at certain points in Lord of the Rings Karl Urban`s accent and speaking style went a bit odd (most especially during the "riders of rohan oaths you have taken bit"). When it does go odd he seems to sound like the funny british comedian Justin Lee Collins. They even look the same kinda (well especially in the lord of the rings/thor context; big beards, long hair and yokel farmer accents)
I don`t want to wacth thor and be unable to stop thinking about a tv comedian when listening to the speeches. http://youtube.com/watch?v=QlqH0V-smMQ
Hi Mad Bull!
I'm a fan of Strongman in general, so I am familiar with Jouko. I thought he was great in Kingdom of Heaven, its a pity he was in the movie only briefly.
Ideally though hes too short and not good looking enough.
However, I'd definately have him in the Thor movie, perhaps as Tyr; God of War (that way he would still have the braids, but with his own natural hair colour).
You would also have to call to question his acting chops, and his age (36 now, therefore 40 by the time the first Thor movie comes out).
Also his accent is fairly pronounced, I don't mind Thor with a slight Scandenavian accent but I may be too much for audiences.
Verily. I just thought he at least could look the part, albeit a little less handsome than most might hope. All sorts of things can be done with angles and perspective to alter an actor's appearance, so I don't think height is much of an issue. His accent is strong, though. Perhaps some intensive work in that area a couple of years prior might help.
Either way, I saw him in that get-up and thought he'd at least make a great Asgardian, if not Thor himself.
Thanks for the feedback, by the way. Strongman competition is awesome,
Michael Bolton for Thor! LoL
I know I'm about to get slammed but I think it was a Wrestlemania where Triple H came out dressed like a viking. When I saw that the first thing that came to my mind was "Thor"
That would be great.
He's probably too old now but I was watching the 13th warrior the other day (antonio banderas) and I was thinking this Vladimir Kulich would've been a cool Thor, like 10 years ago. He looks old now.
I think the guy who played Faramir in Lord of the Rings, I think his name is David Wenham. He has the look and if he gets in the gym enough, he would be a perfect Thor.
I like HHH as Thor too....
Me too, but the guy has got to be able to act as well as look tough. Can't be just any muscle bound actor. HHH would have to tone it down and take some acting lessons.
Ack, why am I thinking of picking Josh Holloway as Thor?
^ He would need to bulk up quite a bit.
I was just about to bring up Dolph Lundgren! He's awesome as a character actor! It's when he tries to go outside of that typecast he sucks. As Thor he would be brilliant casting. It would be like Mickey Rourke as Marv. Hell of a comeback too.
When I saw this post the first thing that came to my mind was "". lol.
Jason Lewis is Captain America, IMHO. I think he's got everything for that role. Thor, not so much.
I have the perfect casting for Thor:
He's 6'4!!!, has a great build and is a great actor, not to mention if you gave his some long blonde hair, he would look just like THOR!!!
6'4 + ALL MUSCLE + GREAT ACTOR=THOR!!!
Mickey Rourke should have been Ben Grimm.
My top pick would be Sean Bean.
