Alexander Skarsgard on Losing "Thor" Role

Posted: June 12th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Alexander Skarsgard on Losing "Thor" RoleSubmit Comment
"True Blood" actor Alexander Skarsgard was previously in-talks for the title role in the upcoming "Thor" film. He seemed like a great fit, being 32-years-old, 6'4 tall, blonde, voted sexiest man in Sweden, and being the son of Stellan Skarsgard. But the role eventually went to Chris Hemsworth (Star Trek).

Now, Skarsgard tells MTV News that he was very close to being cast. So close, that he even filmed an audition in the complete Thor costume, hammer and all. "Yeah," he said. "That was pretty fun."

Skarsgard added that he is still hopeful that one day he might land another comic book-based role. And since Kevin Feige is planning on briging back actors who auditioned for "Thor" for other Marvel role, we might still see Skarsgard as a superhero.

"It depends on the circumstances," Skarsgard said of possible roles in "Captain America" or "The Avengers." "Who the director is, and what the character is. But of course [I'd be interested in looking into it]. I think it's every little boy's dream; it would be a person's dream to play an action hero."

rocketman - not a chance for Captain America. Don't forget... the Actor has to fit in size, next to Iron Man and the Hulk. A 6' 4" Cap. would dwarf Iron Man. This was would have been a good pic for Thor, but not C.A.

He isn't nearly as good an actor as his younger brother Gustaf (who will be appearing in the new Peter Weir film), but he's still way more talented than most young Hollywood actors. Don't know much about Hemsworth though, I really can't tell who's the better choice. I think a lot of people will be surprised with Thor though if Branagh is actually going through with it
