Captain Kirk's Father to Star as "Thor?" 

Chris Hemsworth, the guy who melted our hearts in his heartbreaking performance as the doomed George Kirk, James T. Kirk's dad in "Star Trek," is in talks to star in Marvel Studios "Thor."

Yes, Hemsworth is the chosen one to play the god of Thunder! He beat out all the other actors who wanted to play the title character.

Keep in mind though, Hemsworth is still in negotations, although this one's final.

Kenneth Branagh is still attached to direct the film, which is set for release May 20, 2011.

The Australian actor is chosen because of his athleticism and acting skills. Hemsworth will also play Thor in Marvel's planned "Avengers" team for release 2012.

Just like another Aussie, Sam Worthington in "Terminator Salvation," "Avatar," and "Clash of the Titans," Hemsworth will rule the movie world once "Thor" is released!
