Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje has been cast as one of the lead villains in Marvel's Alan Taylor-directed Thor: The Dark World. He will take on the dual roles of Algrim the Strong and Kurse.
Algrim the Strong was the most powerful of a race of Dark Elves, who is coerced by Malekith to fight Thor. After he's betrayed by Malekith and injured during a battle, Algrim is healed and transformed into a much more powerful being called Kurse, who is twice as a strong as Thor.
Akinnuoye-Agbaje has had small roles in several films such as G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra, The Thing, The Bourne Identity, Unstoppable, but he's probably best known for playing Mr. Eko on LOST. He joins Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Anthony Hopkins, Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, Jaimie Alexander, Stellan Skarsgard, Rene Russo, Kat Dennings and rounded out by Christopher Eccleston who will play the big bad villain Malekith the Accursed, the ruler of the Dark Elves of Svartalfheim.
