Video: Canadian Actor Wants to be "Thor"

Video: Canadian Actor Wants to be "Thor"Submit Comment
James Preston Rogers has worked as a bouncer, wrestler, actor, Canadian Tire employee, and soon, he hopes he can add god of thunder to his resume.

The six-foot-six blonde Brampton, Ontario native is vying to play the mythological Norse superhero in the 2011 Marvel Studios film "Thor." But he realizes that he's at a disadvantage when compared to the other hopefuls like Alexander Skarsgard, who was recently spotted with director Kenneth Branagh.

"I mean he's in LA, he's right next door to the guy and they can go for lunch and hang out," Rogers told The National Post. "I'm up in Toronto, so it's a little bit more difficult for me up here."

Rogers has some Viking training. He plays Bjorn in the recently released sci-fi film "Outlander" starring James Caviezel and Ron Perlman. His acting experience also includes multiple TV roles and a part alongside Woody Harrelson and Sandra Oh in "Defendor," a movie currently being filmed.

Landing the lead in "Thor," said Rogers, would give him the opportunity to step out of the "background" as the "big bad guy role." And that's where the below video comes in.

He would be a shoe-in if Marvel were still doing TV movies.. Not sure why he didn't do some Norse god dialog. Verily.

I think this guy would do quite well. I still think Kevin McKidd would be perfect if he added maybe 30-40lbs of muscle and was cast along some shorter people.
