It looks like Matthew Vaughn’s THOR movie has fallen victim to the strike. Where once we were hearing about it with some frequency (including a potentially astronomical budget), now everything is silent on that movie’s front.

In the latest issue of Total Film Vaughn partakes in the mag’s “One Question Interview” and attention turns to casting the lead for THOR.
“There’s one British guy I’m thinking of but he’s totally unknown. Actors today seem to have forgotten how to be real men. You want someone with balls.”​
I doubt we’ll be seeing THOR next year, possibly not even in 2009, however it’s nice to know he’s got a fix on how to cast the film.
Of course, I have absoltutely no clue who Vaughn is talking about but it might be worth taking a look at the supporting cast for his previous movies LAYER CAKE and STARDUST to see if there’s anyone vaguely Thor-ish amongst them.

It's Mr. Bean! ;)

I agree with him. A good unknown actor is the way to go!




Now what are we waiting for? Let's find out who this guy is!!!:ninja:
 
We already know it's NOT McKidd and if he's a complete unknown I doubt we'll ever know. The only thing is it does not take balls to be an unknown. Vaughn has a way of putting people down in almost every quote.
 
I hope the dude is big and dude has decreased the budget demands.
 
My call for Thor

Eric Dane, best known as Dr. Mark Sloan on Grey´s Anatomy.
He looks the part, he has the acting chops, he has the body, he has the height, and he still isn´t that well known outside tv (even if he was Jamie Madrox in X3)...he is perfect for the God of Thunder.
 
I still say HHH from WWE...I know alot of people say no to a wrestler but that man can act!..Look up any of his stuff on youtube, plus he has the look down...He is Thor all the way
 
HHH is a very capable actor, but I don't see him ever getting a role like this.

F**k no. The guy just looks and sounds like too much of a common thug to pass for Thor. And no, the man can't act.
 
How about you guys stop talking about YOUR picks and try to help deduce who actually COULD be Thor.

If we weren't all so busy bickering, we could probably figure this out; a British unknown, who might be in one of Vaughn's previous movies. Anyone else want to help me comb through the list?
 
I am glad that Thor might be an unknown. I cannot picture any actors that i know of playing Thor, so an unknown is a good way to go in my opinion.
 
Hire some actors who can brush up movie script like Edward Norton. Protosevich had been called to make the script from a long time ago and I can't believe they haven't done the script yet (same with Cap America).
 
I'm sure any work on any scripts already written can't be touched Chirpa.
 
I never wanted to see Stardust because the trailers made it look real damn cheesey. However I needed a film to watch with the kids...so I rented it. Wow it was damn cool. Very well directed, well written, and great acting. It felt at times as if there wasn't enough funds to put in the F/X needed to make it as exciting as it could have been but everything else was an A+ effort. If Marvel gives Vaughn the 150-180 million for this film we should have zero worries. I have no doubt they will. I realize Stardust wasn't a box office hit here in the US but Thor would have much more action and probably snag all the fans of 300 and Conan to boot. The action sequences in the draft I read were freaking epic.

Yeah, Stardust is a good film. After watching I'm so pumped because Thor will be in good hands.
 
If Triple H was cast as Thor, I don't care how good the script could be...its credibility would do a barrel roll.
 
I think I figured out who his unknown is:

The Big guy, Adam Fogerty.

He's at least 6'4" (probably more like 6'6" judging by his height advantage over Vinnie Jones), a former boxer, and rugby star, who was in Snatch and Stardust.

he's a little old (39), but considering we're having a 42 year old Iron Man, and a 39 year old Hulk, a 39 year old Thor would make perfect sense.

And yes, I'm aware he's bald. Wigs are wonderful things.
 
Vaughn: "There’s one British guy I’m thinking of but he’s totally unknown. Actors today seem to have forgotten how to be real men. You want someone with balls"

Could be...

Just cast someone, will ya!!! NOW!
