Stuart Townsend Says Goodbye to "Thor!" 


Stuart Townsend has left production of "Thor" using the good, old "creative differences" excuse.

The actor was set to star as one of the Warrior Three named Fandral. The Warrior Three is a trio of Asgardian warriors who fight alongside Thor, our favorite Norse god. Now, Townsend has been replaced by actor Joshua Dallas.

Kenneth Branagh is directing "Thor" and the shooting starts today.

This is the second time that Townsend has left a famous franchise at the last minute. Once upon a time, he was the man who would be King Aragorn in "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy, but was replaced by Viggo Mortensen.

"Thor" is set to open May 6, 2011.
