Kevin McKidd Wants the Uru Hammer
Kevin McKidd is a hot property right now. The Rome star is of course ticketed for the big screen version of the HBO series should it actually get made. Currently, he’s the latest male hottie on Grey’s Anatomy and remains interested in visiting Asgard in Kenneth Branagh’s Thor film.
He told IGN at the premiere of Punisher: War Zone that there’s been "a lot of back and forth" about the project of late. No formal casting on the July 2010 film has been announced although shooting needs to begin in 2009 for the effects-heavy film to have a chance at making its release date.
“McKidd stressed that the part that he’s up for is indeed that of Thor and not a supporting role,” IGN said.
