    He’s not ugly, but unfortunately his looks are too bland and generic to be remembered. He also lacks sex appeal.

    Hey, William Shatner always had a ‘thick’ neck! I think this guy would have been much better as young Kirk. Chris Pine is too ‘slight’ looking IMO and really doesn’t have the right ‘look’ for the part.

    i think he was a good pick for the role, even though they turned down a few bigger named, better looking actors. ugh, i kind’a prefer a fresh face for something like this. hope he doesn’t suck. LOL..

    true blood Says:

    He’s attractive but I would have preferred Alexander Skarsgård as Thor.

    Mr. Hemsworth is a pretty faced boy. Yummy! Its like (for me) that Chris Pine and Channig Tatum got together and had him! lol

    RM65 Says:

    Hmm, I wonder how bad his acting skills are. His latest movie A perfect getaway premiered this weekend and it seems to be a box office disaster: The movie got an F by E online’s critic.

    shoulda been Alexander Skarsgard as Thor … i doubt this guy can do better than Alex would have done.

    @shadows Says:

    Alexander Skarsgard is not good looking enough to play Thor with the bags under his eyes and his receding hairline, he looks old for his age.

    Chris Hemsworth on the other hand is very handsome and so hot!

    Frida Says:

    #22 I so agree, Alex should’ve played Thor. He is a NORDIC god, isn’t he?

    Frida Says:

    #22, you’re so right, Alexander should’ve had this part. Thor is a NORDIC god, isn’t he?

    Alexander Skarsgard is a Viking God! It was a bummer when he didn’t get the part as Thor.

    Kim Says:

    I think he’s a good actor and I think he will do really well, the next Christopher Reev/Hugh Jackman type because he can do the sensitive dramatic parts as well as the action roles.

    He seems intelligent and sensitive and mature beyond his years. I wish him luck!

    Sugarnspice Says:

    He is soooo hot – omg Channing Tatum & Chris Pine had a baby?! You’re a genius!! I’m so glad to be seeing all these fresh faces in Hollywood I am getting so tired of seeing the same people OVER AND OVER in one hundred thousand different movies. I wish him luck and even though A Perfect Getaway wasn’t that great, he ROCKED his part. Good luck to you Chris!!

    so this is the guy thats going 2 be Thor….i pictured Thor 2 be more muscular,and hotter. Chris is not that hot, ive seen better and hotter. i had a few people in mind that would have been perfect for that role, but i guess he will do.

    leslie Says:

    He certainly will be GREAT!!!! We like them young! Young and fresh!!! Go Chris! You deserve this role and got it! Let the haters hate on!!! Hottie! All the hot decent actresses are going to be all over him!! Can’t wait to see the cat fights!

    Hellshock Says:

    This is bulking up for “Thor”? I’m sorry people but he will play a great Dr. Blake but when he taps his cane and we get Thor. We’ll be getting ripped off.

    He would need a good 50 lbs. minimum of solid muscle to pull that off. They should go with CGI like they did in the Hulk or do a split role and have someone like Triple H play Thor.

    As much as I love Alexander Skarsgard, I’m glad Chris got this role…. he is also a really good actor and I think he will be able to pull off the outfit and long hair and not get lost under it. He’s got a strong face, very strong.

    Those suggestion someone like Triple H for the role are just unrealistic. I’d rather someone that could act! Chris is 6″3 FFS, hes not small!

    It also doesn’t hurt that he is pretty hot, plus that voice… anyone see his part in A Perfect Getaway?

    I think Chris is gonna rock it, you’ll see, YOU’ALL SEE! :)

    Linda Tuttle Says:

    I am so glad Chris became Thor and I think he gained 40 lbs of muscle to do it. The person that said he had no sex appeal is nuts. I can just look at Chris and I wet my drawers LOL. The bad thing is I am 62 yrs old and too old to be having a crush on a soon to be 29 yr old. He will be 29 on Aug 11, 2012. I would be a cougar for him anyday, though LOL. I might be able to show him a thing or two or three. I guess the day I can’t be attracted to a man like Chris, they can just bury my butt. If anybody knows his address in Hollywood, please, please send it to me. I have a placque I would love to send him and his wife for their new baby. I think Chris would love it. My email address is and please use subject of Chris’ Address. Thank you if you can help me.
