thor casting call

Over at Spoiler TV, they’ve gotten a hold of the latest casting notice from the Kenneth Branagh film, Thor. So far, we know the lead roles will feature  Chris Hemsworth as the title character, Tom Hiddleston as his arch enemy Loki, and Natalie Portman as Thor’s love interest Jane Foster. This latest announcement seems geared towards a few supporting characters including a group of warriors and a college student.

Here’s the official casting notice that’s floating around the net.

  • [WARRIORS] A fearless warrior race, where size, strength and ferocity define a member’s rank in both the social and military hierarchy. Warriors born in this society face the harshest ecological conditions imaginable and thrive in environments where lesser creatures, including humans, quickly perishes. Theirs is a world created to cull weakness from the universe to ensure their supreme sovereignty spreads across the stars. MUST BE 6’2 OR TALLER sptv050769, NO BODYBUILDER TYPES. SAG ROLE BUT NO LINES. MUST BE COMFORTABLE WEARING PROSTHETICS.
  • (20) Is a college student. Aloof, jaded beyond her years, she thought her internship with scientist Kate Spelling would be an easy 6 college credits. However, she’s been stuck for months in this small New Mexico town and relegated to a wide range of unglamorous activities. Kate has been particularly hard on Marcy, making it her personal project to see that Marcy lives up to her potential. Marcy deals with her situation both by using subtle irony and by being an overt wiseass.

The supporting cast already includes Jaimie Alexander, Colm Feore, Samuel L. Jackson, and most recently Stellan Skarsgard. For the warrior roles I automatically thought of the cast from 300, but they said no bodybuilder types and some of those men would definitely qualify as that.
