Chris Hemsworth Discusses New Role As Comic Book Hero Thor

Rising star Chris Hemsworth attended The Chicago Comics and Entertainment Expo this past weekend to talk about his upcoming movie Thor.  Looking quite handsome in a black button down shirt and dark denim jeans, the Australian born actor answered questions from the audience and discussed his role as the hammer wielding hero.  According to, Hemsworth didn’t know too much about the comic book legend so in order to prepare for his character, he read as many of the comics as he could.

I don’t know too much about Mr. Hemsworth besides the fact that he has gorgeous blue eyes, but he obviously worked really hard to get this role.  Not only did he read a ton of comics, but he looks like he worked out crazy to resemble Thor.  That’s dedication right there!  Personally, I would work my butt off also if I were given the opportunity to work with superstars like Anthony Hopkins and Natalie Portman, who were also given roles in the movie.  Good job, Chris!  Hope the movie does well!

Thor comes out in theaters May 6, 2011.  Would you go out of your way to watch this movie?
