TYLER MANE's name has recently been coming up about playing THOR in the upcoming live-action movie. He's even expressed interest. While I really like the idea of KEVIN McKIDD (Rome; previous post), Tyler definitely has the PHYSIQUE and LOOK of Thor... I mean holy crap, visually he's PERFECT! The dude is HUGE, standing at a whopping 6'10", and looks like a freaking Viking already!
However, we all know that looks are not enough (Hollywood, please take note on that). I've only seen him as the near-mute SABRETOOTH in Singer's X-MEN, so I have no idea what his acting abilities are. He was in TROY, but I've pretty much tried to exorcise that flick out of me brain. Anyone see the HALLOWEEN REMAKE (he plays the new Michael Myers)? How was he? Any speaking parts?
Anyway, I've always thought THOR should be a man of few words, so if written well, Tyler could be the perfect choice for the SON OF ODIN. Actually, the more I think about it, the more I like it.
