Australian Chris Hemsworth is ready for his close-up. Audiences first got a look at his steely blue eyes as Captain Kirk’s father George in the J.J. Abrams Star Trek reboot. Now, the star is set to explode with his impressive turn as the title character in the first big screen adaptation of the Marvel Comics classic, Thor.
There can be no CGI to enhance the actor; he must come to the set truly looking the part of Thor. Hemsworth does that in droves. He bulked up and the result is not only one of the hottest guys on screen in recent memory, but also his performance as Thor should solidify Hemsworth as a huge movie star.
Hemsworth met us at the Four Seasons Beverly Hills for an exclusive video interview and talked about what it meant to the actor to lead a new Marvel Comics franchise.
