If you tuned in to the Spike Video Game Awards last Friday, you saw Zachary Levi sporting blonde hair, eyebrows and facial hair for his role as Fandral in Thor 2: The Dark World.

Levi steps in for Josh Dallas, who wasn’t able to reprise the role due to his commitment to the hit ABC show, Once Upon A Time. When asked about if he was nervous about filling Dallas’ shoes, Levi said “No, it’s really cool. Josh Dallas played the role I’m playing, Fandral the Dashing, in the first film. I was a little trepidatious about stepping into that because someone had already done it. But everyone’s embraced me wholeheartedly and been very cool.”
Tadanobu Asano as Hogun, Josh Dallas as Fandral (now replaced with Zachary Levi) and Ray Stevenson as Volstagg from first Thor film.
Fandral will be joined once again by Volstagg (Ray Stevenson) and Hogun (Tadanobu Asano), “The Warriors Three”, three Asgardian warriors with kick-ass special abilities.
Perfik casting…can’t wait!
And unless things have changed, Christopher Eccleston (Doctor Who) is still on as the villain Malekith, the leader of Dark Elves of Svartalfheim. Mads Mikkelsen (Casino Royale) was in negotiations to play said role but was working on the NBC prequel series, Hannibal, at the time.
When asked if he’ll stand shirtless beside Thor star Chris Hemsworth, Levi wisely replied, “I can neither confirm nor deny these allegations but I can say there will not be any lack of eye candy…aside from me! I’m not even talking about me. I’ve talking about Chris and Tom (Hiddleston) and everybody else. You’ll be pleasantly surprised and happy.”
You’ve got drool on you.
Thor 2: The Dark World opens November 8, 2013 (assuming the world doesn’t go ‘splode on December 21st).
