McKidd To Play Thor?

This bit of news comes from  They’re not always dead on, but their pretty good.  I can see where Marvel thinks McKidd could be a good Thor.  I very much like him as an actor, but I’m having a hard time picturing it.  If he does indeed get the roll, I think he’ll have to hit the gym pretty hard to build bulk.  His frame is just not as opposing as I like my Thor to be.

Here’s the story:

Trainspotting star Kevin McKidd has emerged as the favourite to play action hero Thor in a new Marvel movie.

The Scottish actor, who has found TV success in America on Grey’s Anatomy and Rome, is in talks to play the title character in Marvel’s upcoming live-action superhero movie.

James Bond star Daniel Craig reportedly turned down the chance to portray the hammer-wielding Norse warrior in the film, which director Kenneth Branagh is reportedly adapting from the comic.

Thor is due for release in 2010.
