This is crazy! Can you believe Chris Hemsworth messed up his first audition for "Thor" because he was too intimidated by the director?
He didn't even get a call-back the first time. The part then almost went to his brother Liam!!!! He was on the short list of the top 5 actors. The 5 actors ended up getting rejected, included Liam! Chris' manager got him another audition saying if they liked Liam, maybe they’d like his older brother too.
He was pissed off he messed up the first time....so naturally he killed the audition the second time around and scored the part!
