Chuck's Zachary Levi may be joining the cast of Thor 2. THR reports that Marvel Studios is considering the actor for the role of Fandral, which was was played by Josh Dallas in the film. Dallas has had to drop out of the sequel because he will be starring in the ABC show Once Upon a Time.
Levi was originally slated to play the role in 2010, but dropped out after Chuck received an episode extension. The current talks are still in the early stages, but an offer for the role is likely. Production will get started this July, with Game of Thrones director Alan Taylor at the helm. Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Idris Elba, and Anthony Hopkins are returning, and Mads Mikkelsen (The Three Musketeers, Valhalla Rising) is in negotiations to play the villain.
I never got into Chuck, but am very interested in seeing Thor 2. Do you think that Levi will make a good Fandral?
