Lost star Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje joins Thor: The Dark World

Mr Eko becomes Thor’s nemesis

Casting on Thor: The Dark World is coming along nicely, with Lost star Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje the latest (sizeable) name to join the soon-to-shoot sequel.

Akinnuoye-Agbaje is best known for his role as Mr Eko in JJ Abrams’ TV series Lost, though he’s also had roles in The Thing and G.I. Joe: The Rise Of Cobra.

Spoilers ahead… In Thor: The Dark World, he’ll play not one but two characters, as the villainous Algrim the Strong and Kurse.

When Dark Elf Algrim is sent by Malekith (Christopher Eccleston) to fight Thor (Chris Hemsworth), he loses, develops amnesia and re-emerges as Kurse.

Akinnuoye-Agbaje is the first big bit of casting to come out of the sequel since Eccleston was attached to play Malekith – replacing a departing Mads Mikkelsen.

Returnees for the film include Natalie Portman, Anthony Hopkins, Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, Stellan Skarsgard, Jaimie Alexander, Rene Russo and Kat Dennings.

Thor: The Dark Worldopens in cinemas on 8 November 2013.

      To be honest I didn't see any sarcasm in your first post (I haven't seen any of Oz) so I'm sure he didn't either, and his post wasn't particularly confrontational.. calling him a t**t is a bit extreme is all i'm saying. I'd say he was best known for Ace Ventura When Nature Calls.

      If you are trying to show sarcasm within text, it is probaly best to use some form of punctuation. A few exclamation marks here and there, or a 'winky' face if you're 'down with the kids'.....n ow s t o p b e i n g a c u n t ! ! ! ...

      Just checked his Wiki page. He was the preacher in Faster. Good performance in a surprisingly enjoyable B-movie. Nice.

      I hope they can make the warriors three a bit better/funnier/less-cr*ppy this time round. Annoyed the hell out of me in the first film.

      Yeah, 'mcghater' is being a bit of an idiot. Ironically, his second statement was sarcastic - his first wasn't. If that was intentional then the boy's a genius. If not, well.....we may have another KingofDalidab on our hands....

      Nah he's alright, we all have our moments. I remember telling dalidab to "f**k off cretin" once and that was after complaining that someone else had had a go at him. Ah, those were the days.

      Mr Ecko !!!!!! I wish a channel here would replay Oz because I was too young to experience the show when it was first on, was hoping Sky Atlantic might have shown it since they made a deal with HBO.
