Re: Daniel Craig offered the part of Thor

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1055413/

Here's a name who's occurred to me recently. German-Irish actor Michael Fassbender, who played Stelios in 300 and has been cast as a Nazi villain in Tarantino's forthcoming Inglorious Bastards (the role for which Leo DiCaprio was initially in the running). He is currently getting rave reviews for playing hunger striker Bobby Sands in Hunger, for which he slimmed down to Christian-Bale-in-The-Machinist type proportions. In fact, he is somewhat like Bale, IMHO, and would probably bulk up like Bale did for Batman if cast as a superhero. He's 6'0", too short for some of you, I know, but surely better a decent actor like that than some plank of WWF wood?

And hey, with an Irish director (apparently) making the movie ...

Sadly no pic of him on his imdb page, but it shouldn't be too hard for the curious of you to find a link.

Thor has to be tall and imposing, he's the Viking god of thunder for f's sake.

Why, was Russell Crowe "too fat" nowadays to be considered for this role?

He's the man who won the Academy Award for Gladiaor (2000), so a role like Thor should be a shoe-in for him.
Russell Crowe isn't too fat, he's too short.
Fans should brace themselves for disappointment when the lead role is cast. Really, what are the chances that the director will find a 6'6" actor who weighs 300 lbs? These are the essential requirements for the role of Thor, as far as fans are concerned.

How large were the chances there was a Christopher Reeve for the role of Superman?

Re: Daniel Craig offered the part of Thor

And maybe they'll come up with someone totally unexpected like Downey Jr. as Tony Stark.

That casting choice was regarded as.. bold by many but when we saw the first pictures, saw him in the first scenes and in finally in the movie it became apparent as a brilliant choice.
Now the character is forever linked to Downey and i hope the same happens with Thor.

One possibility however may be that they are looking for two actors actually.. Dr. Donald Blake for one where Craig, McKidd or someone else would fit perfectly as Thor's human side and then someone with the physique to play a norse god.

One actor to play both may prove very tricky to find because they either lack the physique or the acting chops to play both.

About the only one i can think of currently would indeed be Brad Pitt in his Troy state but he may be outside the budget for the project and maybe even a too big name for the movie.. easily becoming a Brad Pitt movie accidentally labeled Thor rather than Thor with a known but not AA+ level actor.

I'm afraid that fan requirements for Thor are tougher to meet than those for Superman.

And yet no one has looked the part since. Reeve and Reeves did, but no one since.

Sexiness isn't about being a pretty boy. There's a zillion and one pouty-lipped Adonises out there who haven't a drop of sex appeal. Ever seen Heroes? Pretty, pretty men - who couldn't get my panties off with a dozen roses and the promise of a 2-hour tongue bath. Mr. Craig could merely growl in my general direction and butter would melt on my thighs.

I'll buy that. Still, I think Bond should be good looking.

Note to self: Start practicing your growl.
