Have any of you actually read Craig's reasons for not taking the role? Not that I want him in the role, so lucky me, but his reason is ridiculous:

He figures taking on two action roles is egotistical.

Seriously, if he's so worried about being egotistical, maybe instead of turning down the role, he should take it, and then take every dime he makes off of the project and give it away to charity. While he's at it, maybe he should take half of what he's made till now and give that away as well.
You seem to be confusing egotistical and greedy. He didn't say taking the role would make him too much money, but that it would be self-aggrandizing.

Re: Daniel Craig offered the part of Thor

I'm still liking the Fassbender idea, even if no-one else seems to have any thoughts of it, good bad or indifferent!

Here's a link to a fansite with a gallery of pictures. He'd be a slightly offbeat choice for sure and he'd have to bulk up a lot (though 300 showed that he can do that). But if they're looking for someone in the vein of Bale or Craig, an acclaimed and intense actor, rather than a movie star, not to mention someone with a Germanic/ Scandanavian look, I think he'd be a good possibility.
