Thors Warrior Buddies Cast

According to an article that appeared then disappeared from Variety (did someone break an embargo?), Stuart (Queen Of The Damned) Townsend, Ray (Punisher War Zone) Stevenson and Tadanobu (Ichi The Killer) Asano (Japan’s answer to Johnny Depp) will play The Warriors Three, a trio of Asgardian adventurers who fight alongside the Norse god, in Kenneth Branagh’s big screen adaptation of the Marvel comic book character, Thor.

In the comics The Warriors Three are the swashbuckling Fandral, the mace-weilding Hogun The Grim and the Falstaff-like tubster Volstagg.

Just this past weekend, Chuck star Zachary Levi revealed that he had been offered one of these parts, Fandral, but had to turn it down when CBS unexpectedly ordered extra episodes for season three of Chuck.

Anyone want to guess who's going to be playing what? It starts off seeming obvious until you get to Voltsagg, whom none of them seem suited for. And then you think that Zachary Levi was going to be Fandral, and all bets go out of the window…
