Stuart Townsend Out As Fandral In Thor

6 Comments

Stuart Townsend is getting more famous for the roles he has left than the roles he has played. He’s now out as Fandral The Dashing, buddy of Thor, in Kenneth Branagh’s “Thor”. Of course he was supposed to have been Aragorn in that little indy trilogy called “Lord Of The Rings” that you might have heard about. Peter Jackson said that Stuart just was too young looking to play Aragorn and that is possibly the case. I’m sure that they had some pictures of Stuart before filming though. Stuart is out of “Thor” due to the old standby “creative differences” excuse.

Replacing Mr. Townsend is Joshus Dallas, a guy I haven’t heard much about. I’ll google him. Peter Jackson has a thing for replacing his actors just before shooting. He did that in “The Lovely Bones”, replacing Ryan Gosling with Mark Wahlberg. This is the second replacement for Stuart though and obviously by a different director, so it’s interesting. Thanks /film for the scoop.

Endy is a slightly mangy and gristly citizen of the Great White North. He loves movies big time. How big? In Canada, back in the old days in the ice city where he lived, there would just be one theatre that would be allowed to show any given movie. Some of these theatres were not the giganto-plex or mall theatres that we know and love today. No no, these were the kind of theatres where you had to wait Outside to see a movie. When a big moving picture would open in these single theatres, beaver pelt sporting fellas like Endy would have to wait outside in line for hours while fighting off the human hankering giant Polar Bear or packs of Endy knawing timber wolves. Endy is a dedicated movie watcher. Otherwise, Endy loves him a good Moose jerky, football teams with manly names like the Steelers or Vikings and the thawing embrace of his fine German woman. All these things are good. But you know what is best.

    As we can see, the character “Fandral” is having a hard time staying cast. First Zecharia Levy wouldn’t commit then Townsend left now we have an unknown who looks like your average Joe Bloe plain Wayne. He may end up being the next best thing though along with Hemsworth. In my opinion, Branagh was destined to play as Fandral and that probably why the gods are mad and keep recasting Fandral.
