Two More Cast in 'Thor': Jaimie Alexander, Colm Feore Join Marvel Adaptation
The Hollywood Reporter, 22 September 2009
The world of "Thor" is filling up.
Jaimie Alexander and Colm Feore are coming aboard the Marvel Studios adaptation of its comic book featuring the Norse god of thunder. Kenneth Branagh is directing.
Alexander and Feore join Chris Hemsworth, already cast as Thor; Tom Hiddleston, who plays Loki, the god of mischief who serves as the movie's villain; and Natalie Portman is Thor's human love, Jane Foster.
In Marvel's epic fantasy, Alexander is playing Sif, a skilled Asgardian warrior who can hold her own against any man. She also is one of Thor's loves.
Feore's character is shrouded in mystery -- the studio isn't even sending the actors the script -- though it is known to be a villain.
The movie's story centers on Thor, a powerful but arrogant warrior whose reckless actions re-ignite an ancient war. As punishment, Thor is cast down to Earth and forced to live among humans. Once here, he learns what it takes to be a true hero when the most dangerous villain of his world sends dark forces of Asgard to invade Earth.
Alexander, best known for "Kyle XY," also has been cast as a pharmaceutical sales rep in "Love and Other Drugs," starring Anne Hathaway and Jake Gyllenhaal. That movie begins shooting in October. Alexander is repped by the Kohner Agency, James Levy Management and Lev Ginsburg.
Feore, repped by the Coronel Group, is coming off stints on "24" and "The Listener." He appears "The Trotsky," which debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival.
