** '''[[Creator/BrianBlessed BRIAN BLESSED]]''' was originally slated to play Odin. Zachary Levi of Series/{{Chuck}} and Stuart Townsend had both been cast as Fandral before Josh Dallas took over. Creator/AlexanderSkarsgard was also tested for the role of Thor, which would have made for an interesting dynamic considering his dad Creator/StellanSkarsgard is playing Erik. Creator/DanielCraig, and Channing Tatum were also considered for the role of Thor. Interestingly, Levi would replaced Dallas as Fandral for ''Film/ThorTheDarkWorld''.

* HeyItsThatGuy:
** Creator/JMichaelStraczynski (whose work on the comic series has serious influence on the setting and Thor's costume) is the first guy to try to lift Mjolnir, and definitive 80s ''Thor'' writer Creator/WaltSimonson is an Asgardian at the end.
** [[Film/StarTrek George]] [[ChrisHemsworth Kirk]] is Thor himself.
** Also, by the looks of it, [[Series/{{Wallander}} Magnus Martinsson]] finally [[AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence got himself that promotion]]. And was allowed to keep his [[SlashFic slash fic status]].
** [[Series/TheNewAdventuresOfOldChristine Richard Campbell]] is Phil Coulson.
** [[Film/TheHurtLocker Sgt.]] [[Creator/JeremyRenner James]] is ComicBook/{{Hawkeye}}.
** You might recognize Heimdall as [[Series/TheWire Stringer Bell]] and Series/{{Luther}}.
** [[Film/PunisherWarZone Frank]] [[Creator/RayStevenson Castle]] / [[Series/{{Rome}} Titus Pullo]] sure let himself go.
** [[NataliePortman Padmé]] [[Franchise/StarWars Amidala]] is Jane Foster.
** [[Film/TheSilenceOfTheLambs Hannibal]] [[AnthonyHopkins Lecter]] is Odin the Allfather.
** [[Series/TwoBrokeGirls Max]] [[Creator/KatDennings Black]] is Darcy Lewis.
** [[Series/KyleXY Jesse]] is Sif.
** Hogun is [[Manga/IchiTheKiller Kakihara]] and [[{{Zatoichi}} Hattori]].
*** And [[UsefulNotes/GenghisKhan Temujin]], too. Oddly appropriate.
** Odin and [[Creator/StellanSkarsgard Erik Selvig]] are [[Film/{{Beowulf}} Hrothgar]] and... Hrothgar. (From the 2007 ''Beowulf'' film and 2005's ''Beowulf and Grendel'' respectively.)
*** Selvig is also [[Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbean Bootstrap Bill]].
*** And he's also [[Literature/TheMillenniumTrilogy Martin Vanger]].
*** And he's pretty good at singing [[Film/MammaMia Abba songs, too!]]
** Fandral is [[Series/OnceUponATime Prince Charming]].
