If you make it a habit to read USA Weekend, you may have seen the interview with Chuck star Zachary Levi, who said he had been cast as Fandral in the upcoming Thor movie to be directed by Kenneth Branagh.  Unfortunately, NBC extended the third season, which means Zach had to drop out of the flick.

Levi was cast as Fandral, one of Thor’s Warriors Three in the comic book adaptation, and the actor had even been working out especially for the role, but had to walk away when they got the extra pickup. (Levi admits that producers had asked him to audition for the role of the usually beefy God of Thunder, but told them no. “I’m tall and in pretty good shape, but I’m not big and girthy like that,” he says.)

    Although it sucks for Zach, I would MUCH rather see him in the Nerd Herd than in Asgard. Although, it’s good to hear he’s been working out…Since he’s gonna be a Kung-Fu expert in Season 3! (Can’t wait!)
