Stuart Townsend Out Of Thor Movie...


According to The Associated Press, Irish actor Stuart Townsend has left the production of Kenneth Branagh's Thor, in which he had been cast in the role of Fandral, one of the Warriors Three, over "creative differences". He has already been replaced by virtual unknown Joshua Dallas, who recently appeared in the horror sequel The Descent: Part 2 and has a part in the George Lucas produced Red Tails.

The change in cast happened last week, just as the film was about to start shooting on Monday, and it's the second last minute replacement Townsend has faced, after being replaced by Viggo Mortensen as Aragorn in the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy in a similar situation.

All I can think of here is that Townsend is a bit of a diva and threw a few strops on set which led to him leaving the film. As these Marvel movies are making merry millions it's hard to see why he'd jump out of the production for any minor reasons, but hey, the guy managed to get in Charlize Theron's pants and stay there for a long time so he's not a total loss...
