Brian Blessed Cast In Thor Movie?

brian

I understand that British actor Brian Blessed has been cast in Kenneth Branagh’s THOR movie, based on the Marvel Comics title, as the character Odin.

Blessed is best known for his roles as Caesar Augustus in I CLAUDIUS and King Of The Hawk Men in FLASH GORDON as well as being a charity campaigner and mountaineer.

He has appeared in a number of Kenneth Branagh productions, including HAMLET and AS YOU LIKE IT, famed for his booming voice.

Odin is the father of Thor and his half-brother Loki, and is the All-Father of Valhalla, the Norse afterlife. Watch the following clips and see if you think he’d be suitable
