A casting notice for the lead role in Kenneth Branagh’s Thor has gone out, and according to the explanation for the role, provided by Coming Attractions, it’s fair to say many will not like it:
Male MUST BE MID-LATE 20′S and SIX FEET OR TALLER. LEAD.
Physically powerful, very handsome, occasionally egotistical, petulant, and wild. A natural warrior with a quick charming wit who must be genuinely and severely humbled before becoming the compassionate, mature hero of our film.
The physical and personal traits sound to be right on, but I don’t like that they’re looking for such a young actor.
The start date is July and the filming will conclude by September.
