Townsend replaced in ‘Thor’
LOS ANGELES: Stuart Townsend has departed Marvel Comics’ movie adaptation of Thor because of creative differences.
Townsend had been cast as Fandral, an ally of Norse god Thor. He was replaced by Joshua Dallas.
Irish actor Townsend, 37, best known as the boyfriend of Academy Award winner Charlize Theron, starred in Queen of the Damned.
