Speaking to The Guardian, Mel Gibson has revealed how he passed on the opportunity to play Odin in Thor and forever give the film quiet undertones of drunken, livid, racist misogyny.
"Long time ago, [I was asked] to play Thor's dad. But I didn't do it," Gibson said of his chance to be in Marvel's 2011 film.
Gibson would instead use that year to record a new audio hit of himself screaming that his wife, whom he previously labeled a "dishonest cunt" with "no fucking soul" who would be at fault for being "raped by a pack of niggers," was "a filthy little cocksucker who takes advantage of [him]." So... just a different career path, I guess.
