Kevin McKidd and Triple H on the Run to Play Thor the God of Thunder?


Kevin McKidd and Triple H on the Run to Play Thor the God of Thunder?


"Rome" star Kevin McKidd and wrestler-turned-actor Triple H are said to be up for the title role in Marvel Studiosí "Thor."

Now that Matthew Vaughn has been assigned to carry out the helming duties on "Thor", talks are shifting to who may fill in the lead role of the titular character with IESB.net and CHUD.com each mentioning a name for the part.

While the former brought up scoop that "Rome" star Kevin McKidd is being tipped to play the god of thunder, the latter site, in the meantime, has obtained info stating it is wrestler-turned-actor Triple H who is up to play the character instead.

"Marvel wants wrestler Triple H to play the god of thunder, while Vaughn is dead set against it," so CHUD.com reported.

Triple H actually is no stranger to Marvel Studios as he previously appeared as a henchman in "Blade Trinity" and was once attached to John Milius' now-defunct "King Conan: Crown of Iron." As for McKidd, if the words turn out to be true, the actor will thereby become the second cast member of "Rome" to play in a Marvel movie after co-star Ray Stevenson, who recently landed the title role in "The Punisher 2."
