Speaking to IGN, Kevin McKidd, the über-Aryan star of Rome and Grey's Anatomy, confirmed he's still in talks to star in Kenneth Branagh's Thor film:

McKidd confirmed for IGN that he's still a contender for the lead role and that there's been "a lot of back and forth" about the project of late, but that nothing has been determined. He acknowledged that Kenneth Branagh is directing it, a choice that makes him even more excited about the film.

McKidd stressed that the part that he's up for is indeed that of Thor and not a supporting role. This contradicts what McKidd told us last year when he suggested that Thor might be played by a younger actor and that he would be up for a different role instead.

McKidd definitely looks the part, but if they're no longer looking for a young actor, am I the only one who thinks they should go with chef Gordon Ramsay? He has the stern, commanding voice, the tall, athletic build, and the [frosted] blonde hair. Plus, he wouldn't hesitate to speak up if Captain America screwed up the risotto. Perfect casting.
