Mr. Eko To Join Doctor Who In Thor 2
Yes, yes, I know Mr. Eko has a real name. But who doesn't like imagining Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje's LOST alter ego duking it out with Dr. Who (okay, Chris Eccleston) and Thor (FINE,
the Huntsman the jock the Wolverine Chris Hemsworth) in an epic Thor 2 Norse space brawl?
Per Variety, Akinnuoye-Agbaje has landed the role of Dark Elf bruiser Algrim the Strong in Thor 2 (AKA Thor: The Dark World). The nerdy details:
In the comicbooks, 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.
Alan Taylor has taken over directing duties from Kenneth Branagh, with cast members Natalie Portman, Anthony Hopkins, Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, Jaimie Alexander, Stellan Skarsgard, Rene Russo and Kat Dennings returning. Thor 2 hits theaters November 8, 2013.
