Skarsgard joins Thor?

Oct. 5, 2009by: Mike Sampson

Once upon a time Alexander Sarsgard ("True Blood") was one of the leading contenders to star in THOR. The part eventually went to Chris Hemsworth but the younger Sarsgard came in a close second. Well now at least the Sarsgard family has something to looking forward to when THOR comes out. Swedish news site Ystads Allehanda (via Empire Online) is reporting that Alexander's father Stellan Skarsgard has signed on play a role in THOR. Who or what that role is remains to be seen but I'm sure it's someone of Norse properties. Skarsgard joins the aforementioned Hemsworth and Natalie Portman, Samuel L. Jackson, Tom Hiddleston, Colm Feore and Jaimie Alexander in the film for Kenneth Branagh. Filming is scheduled to begin in January. Take your best guesses as to what the elder Skarsgard is doing in THOR below...

Sweet! And then, after the movies are made, he as Odin and Neeson as Thor can battle it out, and then we will truly know who is the best thunder god!

Miguelito

They both have the last name of Skarsgrd. Which is usually "Skarsgard" in english media. Alexanders last name however is spelled "Sarsgard" only on JoBlo ;)

Stellan for Oden, Blessed for Volstagg.

Great great but would have been ever greater if Alexander Skarsgrd got the big part.

Jon-Erik Hexum

If Jon-Erik Hexum were still alive, he'd have been a great Odin. He'd have been 52 years old by now and a perfect fit.

Why does Stellan have a K in his name, and Alexander apparently does not?

If I remember...

they were originally saying that Alexander was up for Thor and that Stellan would be playing Odin. So I assume that he's likely going to be up for that same part.(Still wish Alexander was playing Thor.)
