Man Monday – Chris Hemsworth

Today I’m guest author over at Regency Historical Romance author, Tamara Gill’s blog party. Drop by for a chance to win a free copy of One Wicked Night or just chat.

He may have only had 10 minutes or so of screen time in the 2009 Star Trek, but the gorgeous Chris Hemsworth makes a big impression as George Kirk, Captain of the Kelvin. Who wouldn’t love a character like George Kirk who dies to protect his wife, child and everyone else on the ship. And even in the midst of a battle he could laugh about the horror of naming his child Tiberius. I love humor in a romance hero.

Of course, at 6’3″ the Australian born actor makes a captivating hero. And he’s due to step into the role of Thor opposite Natalie Portman (one of my favorite actors), directed by the wonderful Kenneth Branagh. The basic plot of Thor: The powerful but arrogant warrior Thor is cast out of the fantastic realm of Asgard and sent to live amongst humans on Earth, where he soon becomes one of their finest defenders. I am so looking forward to watching this in 2011!
