McKidd talks Thor

09.10.2007

Kevin McKidd Former cinematic centurion Kevin McKidd, who's been rumored to be up for the titular role in THOR, director Matthew Vaughn's feature adaptation of the Marvel comic of the same name, recently spoke about his possible involvement in the film and had this to say:

It is semi true. I didn't know about it either until I heard the rumors. I called my agent and the last I heard was I think they want to go with somebody much younger, a nineteen or twenty year old for that role. Although they may be switching their sights, the other main male character in that movie I think I am in consideration for.

It certainly is by no means in the bag. To be honest until I read a script I don't really know so this is all still information coming out. It could be fun, but it depends on what is on the page. It all starts and finishes with the script.

He would certainly make for a pretty fierce Thor, though it seems they may be going for a young buck pretty boy. In the meantime, we can see him as a time traveling good Samaritan in the upcoming fall show "Journeyman".

Any idea what the story line is here? I always hated the Don Blake connection and I hope they just deal with Thor, Asgard, and the Norse mythology rather than tie Thor down with the "real world."

so 19 or 20, eh? so thor just graduated (he was older than the other kids and/or held back) high school and is on his way to college. this is the harrowing tale of thors journey to find the right college to get the education he needs, and the girl of his dreams. you know what? fuck it, i'm giving up. only 4 people should be allowed to touch a goddamn comic movie: David Goyer, Christopher Nolan, Jon Favreau, and Robert Rodriguez. hell, i'll even throw in Guillermo Del Toro. Everyone else: open a

Everyone else: open a fucking comic book AT LEAST ONCE. fuckin a, if they go down this route i think the guy who played the thor wannabe in 'adventures in babysitting' might be a more believable thor!

What other main male character is he referring to in his comment? Don Blake? Odin? Loki? Beta-Ray Bill? Details people. Though Marvel's Thor is a giant bore IMO (much like Iron Man) McKidd (great on Rome) could get me interested.

I believe he played.....

Tommy in Trainspotting. The good guy that didn't use smack until after Renton took the video tape Tommy made with his girlfriend. His girl left him, and tried smack, and got AIDS from a dirty needle. I believe that is how it went anyhow.

fabu

He'd make a swell Thor..or Loki even really. I see him more as Loki though from his previous work.

Maybe it's just me but Thor shouldn't be some 19 year old in a "coming of age" type story, yuck. Whomever they go with, I'm hoping it's not a pro-wrestler.
