If we’re talking Hemsworth brothers, Chris Hemsworth is the hot one and Liam Hemsworth is the popular one.

Chris is also the movie star and Liam is the up-and-comer. However, there was a brief few months when it was looking like Liam would have been the lead in Thor.

Yes, imagine a world where Liam played Thor.  Think of the headlines: “Miley Cyrus calls off engagement with Thor” or “Miley Cyrus Shocks with Tongue Out at Thor Premiere.”

Literally, the world wouldn’t be the same.

Chris revealed to W magazine that Liam almost won the role of the hunky demi-god.

“I auditioned for Thor, and I didn’t get called back. I was intimidated by the director, Kenneth Branagh—to me, he is Shakespeare. My brother, Liam, was luckier. He was one of the final five guys up for the part, but none of them were quite right. My manager said, ‘If you liked Liam, maybe you’ll also like his older brother.’ This time, I was pissed off. I didn’t care about Shakespeare anymore; swagger got me the part.”
