Did you know that when casting for the title role in the upcoming superhero film THOR, Paramount and Marvel narrowed it down to two final candidates, ultimately selecting Chris Hemsworth (who played the father of Capt. James T. Kirk in JJ Abrams’ STAR TREK that dies at the very beginning of the film) to play Thor.
Their close second choice was Charlie Hunnam of FX’s “SONS OF ANARCHY”. Hunnam is also a talented writer, recently finishing a rewrite of the script for VLAD, a Summit Entertainment and Plan B Entertainment (Brad Pitt’s co.) horror project based on the story of Vlad the Impaler, a 15th Century prince of Romania, whose last name was Drăculea and upon whom the Dracula legend is based.
