Liam Hemsworth Briefly Comments On Losing The Role Of THOR To Older Brother Chris

Set to star in the forthcoming films Hunger Games and The Expendables 2, Liam Hemsworth is is definitely trending upward but how does he feel about losing Thor to big brother, Chris?

The March issue of GQ Magazine profiles Liam Hemsworth, younger brother of Thor titular actor Chris Hemsworth, a role that the brothers were both up for. Here's what Liam has to say about losing out to big brother:

On Chris landing the role of Thor:

HEMSWORTH: “Look, Chris is six-and-a-half years older than me so there’s this thing where if I’d got Thor, that would have been weird. The way I look at this is, better Chris than someone else. Believe me, Chris and I spent most of our lives beating each other up. At this point, we’re just happy not to be fist-fighting over who gets to sit in the front seat.”

Must have been interesting, to say the least, to be competing against your own brother for the lead role in a major motion picture. I believe Liam is stating that with Chris being so much older, he's used to losing when they compete so he didn't really get wrapped up in the loss. Also, that if he was going to lose out on the role, at least it was to his big brother. Still, things worked out in the end for Liam, he's starring in the Hunger Games, a film that will likely gross similar numbers to Twilight, which would be a lot more than Thor.

That picture is about to give the women some lady boners.
I'm glad Chris got the part, Liam doesn't seem 'Thor' enough to me.
JillValenfield - 3/12/2012, 8:53 AM
Nooo! Im glad that his older brother got the role (well, I thought Alexander skarsgard could do it too, but chris is good too)
But lliam is too young, and I dont think that he could do a good Thor compaired to his brother. But he got a good role too, looking forward to hunger games!
JatevinM - 3/12/2012, 9:04 AM
I say make Liam Baldur in the Thor sequel.
ronnie42 - 3/12/2012, 9:05 AM
similar numbers to twilight, more than thor?

Your kidding right? Twilight was an abomination, I'd rather go back to watching Buffy or Angel, Supernatural series would make a better series than that horrible twilight crap!
kurekurcubic - 3/12/2012, 9:14 AM
hunger games will earn more then thor,but not more then avengers.
more important,liam is only a small,supporting guy in these films,while chris is main guy everywhere

What's your point?! TWILIGHT was a MONSTER at the box office, regardless of whether or not you liked it....HUNGER GAMES will be a MONSTER at the box office...again, regardless of whether or not YOU like it.

I am thinking Beta Ray Bill for Liam. Same build type for brothers. Balder should have been introduced in the first movie as a member of the family. Beta Ray Bill is the way to go. Motion capture tech for his head and get to work.

@ronnie42 - yeah, we all hate twilight. But it makes money, what can we do? It's a fact.
chasesuperremey - 3/12/2012, 9:33 AM

Hottest brothers ever.
Damn, I wanna be in the filling in that sandwich. <3

Sort of off-topic:

The Marvel FaceBook-page has just revealed that if many people buy tickets to the midnight screening, it will unlock new, never-before-seen of The Avengers!! :-D

Liam's got a kid's face. No beard can hide that. The only heroes he could play are younger ones like Johnny Storm, maybe Danny Rand. Chris is just ideal for Thor. He's got the chiseled face/build, the lower voice and has got way more natural stage presence than Liam.
sheebz - 3/12/2012, 9:42 AM

no seriously that family is full of hot sexiness DNA, i wonder if my hubby would mind if i want to have thors baby. I'm glad chris got the part, cuz Liam looks too young
AnthonyJacobs - 3/12/2012, 9:49 AM
Cherrybomb is a girl?i always thought all members in CBM are guys.
AnthonyJacobs - 3/12/2012, 9:51 AM
Sheeb is another female!okay how many girls do we have?
QuietStorm - 3/12/2012, 9:59 AM
Sons of bitches and their heads full over hair. DAMN THEM BOTH! *sigh*
BIGBMH - 3/12/2012, 10:04 AM
Chris has more of the Thor look so I'm glad he got the role, but I'm sure Liam will do well for himself. He's in the Hunger Games, so I think that will be a successful 3 movie franchise that will raise his status.
SCURVYDOG619 - 3/12/2012, 10:05 AM
Read that GQ article. Liam's btothers aparently padded him up and shot him with BB guns for I mainly admire Liam for 'taking one for the team' and squiring Miley Cyrus.Yes,you read that correctly. He's all over Hanna Montana...
headlopper - 3/12/2012, 10:40 AM
Should have fought it out like normal brothers!
headlopper - 3/12/2012, 10:47 AM
BTW, the women on this site are sexually objectifying these fine gentlemen just because they think they're attractive! Wanting to engage in sexual intercourse!Tcth!

Well, if that's their prerequisite...

...heh, I guess I'm in luck!
claybo4131 - 3/12/2012, 10:48 AM
Liam will never be as big of a star as Chris

Thor > Gale hawthorne NO BRAINER

And Gale is only in the first few chapters of the first book (Wont get into the other 2) but he doesn't participate in the actual games.
NeoBaggins - 3/12/2012, 10:50 AM
Your bro worked out just fine. It's all good, homie. Drink up.

soaponapope - 3/12/2012, 10:51 AM
he looks like he is in a boy band
headlopper - 3/12/2012, 11:03 AM
@soaponarope- Hey! I was in a boy band!
Only the other four member's were girls.

The name of our band was 'ViagraAddictDoppelgangerIneedaBreather Band'.
leftcoastpunk - 3/12/2012, 11:10 AM
Score a win for the older bro's of the world! Gotta keep those those younger sibs in check! The second they get the upper hand for the first time the little brats start to stop fearing the swirlys and atomic wedgies, then it's all F'd from there!
headlopper - 3/12/2012, 11:25 AM
@Nomis- LMAO!

Hey, we crossed all demographics!

But yeah, I--I believe you....for, ehem...her.LOL!
113 - 3/12/2012, 11:42 AM
He could play Beta Ray Bill. lol.
superotherside - 3/12/2012, 11:46 AM
I would actually like this guy as Eddie Brock. But IDK, if I'd like him to be Eddie in Sony's Spider-man films. :(
CherryBomb - 3/12/2012, 1:06 PM

@AnthonyJacobs Yes, I am female! (:
there are quite a lot of girls on here actually, I'm pleasantly surprised! it's about time we got some estrogen up in here.
CherryBomb - 3/12/2012, 1:07 PM

@Anthony I was also Miss CBM 2011 ! ;) Hahaha
nuck82 - 3/12/2012, 1:12 PM
gustos so old, he cant even get lady wood anymore
leftcoastpunk - 3/12/2012, 1:25 PM
Who'da guessed the estrogen would show up in force in an article about to buff dudes. d;-)
clogan - 3/12/2012, 3:33 PM
He's got a [frick]ed up ear. :o

Still, handsome dudes. Kudos :)
pucrepeap - 3/12/2012, 5:11 PM
I'm not gay, but those are some good looking guys. Jealous.
breakUbatman - 3/13/2012, 3:26 AM
I know you guys are joking but why would he play Loki, ones an asgardian the others a frost giant: no genetic connection.
maito - 3/13/2012, 12:12 PM
If one surpass the other only time would tell.

btw, I don't think there wolud be a better Thor than Chris. It's really hard for me to tell if he's acting or getting paid for been himself.
