Thank goodness Chris Hemsworth ultimately got the lead role in “Thor” and “Thor: The Dark World.” A “lost” audition tape has been unearthed by the people over at “Conan,” showing Jason Schwartzman’s attempt to get the role and he’s just not the right guy for the part.
First of all, Schwartzman is not nearly the size needed for an Asgardian god, and he’s not particularly intimidating. Then there’s his hair, bad line readings, and all the trouble he has catching the hammer. Catching Thor’s hammer is half the job, so if that’s not something you’re up for, it’s time to move on.
His bright idea of adding Noam Chomsky to the Avengers is something Joss Whedon should think about, though.
