Thor is supposed to be a MASSIVE man. Picture Rolf Moeller who played Haken, the German in Gladiator and Conan on t.v. THAT is what Thor is supposed to look like. I find it disturbing that most of what I've seen on the net about who will play Thor revolves around his height and not his physique. What about a casting call? Has Hollywood abandoned that concept completely? The comic hero/thunder god is at least 6'6 and over 600 pounds. The weight seems too much, but who knows what a god would weigh??? The bottom line is MUSCULARITY. Forget Taylor Dane and anyone else who isn't very massive, no matter how tall they are.
Rolf Moeller is a great pick. The weight isn't an issue. Thor's extraordinary weight is due in large part to his density.
