Thor Casting Buzz

There has been some casting buzz this week for Kenneth Branagh Thor, first up is who have got news from one of there scoops that:
Hey Mayimbe,

Long time reader, finally with something juicy. I had a first hand eyeball witness of Kenneth Branagh eating dinner at Blairs today accompanied by a young Blonde actor who i recognized from HBO's awesome miniseries Generation Kill that was on a year or so ago. I had no idea what his name was but I got home today and Googled him, his name is Alexander Skarsgård. I have no idea if he actually is Thor or not, maybe he's being considered, maybe he and Kenneth are just friends. However, it seems likely he is being considered since he's a young Blonde actor and seems to fit the description of the character. Two other men were with them but I didn't recognize either of them. I know it's speculative at best, even so I thought you'd wanna know.
So the wielder of the mighty hammer Mjolnir could be Alexander Skarsgård, he defiantly looks the part.
Also in Thor news have some some exclusive inside information that the role of Thor's brother Loki, is been considered for Josh Hartnett, noting confirmed yet.
