Chris Hemsworth of ‘Thor’ Is a God Among Men – The Daily Swoon
Who do you get to play the God of Thunder? Probably a dude who looks like Chris Hemsworth — the kind of guy some ancient civilization would have built a statue to honor.
On the big screen, the Australian actor plays Thor in ‘The Avengers‘ and in his own movies (there’s a new one coming out soon!), and you may have seen him as the jock-y guy in ‘Cabin in the Woods‘ last year or as the huntsman in ‘Snow White and the Huntsman.’ He’s a got a deep voice and killer blue eyes and the kind of hair you can totally get jealous over, which makes him perfect to play the hero type.
Anyway, Chris used to star on an Aussie soap opera called ‘Home and Away’ before showing off his dance moves on his home country’s version of ‘Dancing with the Stars.’ His first big Hollywood role came in 2009 when he had a small part as Chris Pine’s dad in ‘Star Trek’ — and casting those two as father and son? Brilliant. Sexy people make sexy people, you know. It’s science.
Right now Hemsworth is hard at work making a sequel to ‘Thor,’ which will hit theaters this November.
