Well its taking Hollywood by storm… No, not Avatar..Stuart Townsend, previously of Queen of the Damned and currently of well…Nothing. THR reports:
Stuart Townsend has departed Marvel Comics’ movie adaptation of “Thor” because of creative differences, according to sources close to the production.
Townsend had been cast as Fandral, an ally of Norse god Thor. He was replaced by Joshua Dallas, according to the two sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak on the record.
Irish actor Townsend, 37, best known as the boyfriend of Academy Award winner Charlize Theron, starred in “Queen of the Damned.” He had been cast as Aragorn in “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy but was replaced at the last minute by Viggo Mortensen.
So this douche bag was supposed to be in LOTR?? Squandering his career perhaps? Seems to me like EVERYWHERE he goes he drags a bit of negativity with him. Starting back when he insulted his film Queen of the Damned before it was even released and thus creating a PR shit storm for the studio.
You can currently find Townsend with his nails dug firmly into Charlize Theron.
