Some pretty cool news from IGN:
Apparently Sons of Anarchy actor Charlie Hunnam has made it far enough in the lengthy casting crucible to have gotten a screen test to play Thor, the awesome Asgardian, in Marvel’s upcoming 2011 film. A highlight:
Hunnam confirmed that he has indeed screen-tested for the role of the god of thunder. He has only shot one screen test so far, and when asked if it involved running around with a helmet and a hammer, he replied with a smile, “Something like that.”
I’m looking at this guy, and I think Hunnam at the very least looks the part for the Kenneth Branagh-directed film, as well as the following Avengers film. (And credits like Children of Men and Cold Mountain certainly are nothing to sneeze at, either.) What say you, Rama readers?
