MTV Movies confirms that while he was offered the role in the upcoming Thor movie, Daniel Craig, who’s currently playing James Bond in next month’s Quantum Of Solace, has turned down the role.

From MTV:

During a recent “Quantum of Solace” press event, Craig revealed that Marvel did indeed approach him to play Thor, but he turned the role down. According to IESB, Craig said he declined the part because it would have been “too much of a power trip” to play both Bond and Thor.

 width=The rumor is that British comedian Russell Brand (Forgetting Sarah Marshall) is the favorite to play Dr. Frank-N-Furter in the upcoming remake of The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

Tim Curry played the part of the transsexual transvestite scientist in the original film and was spectacular. Brand was funny in Forgetting Sarah Marshall, but I’m not sure he can do the Rocky Horror role justice. Then again, I don’t have much faith in the remake to begin with.

Anyone think Brand can fill Tim Curry’s enormous high heels?

I don’t know much about the Prince of Persia video game, other than I can’t figure out how to play it on my cell phone. Rope of Silicon says Jake Gyllenhaal is slated to play the titular prince. The movie has the prince pairing with a princess (naturally) to rescue the “Sands of Time” (before a bad guy gets it, I would assume).
