Zachary Levi plays Fandral in Thor 2, "The Dark World," replacing the departing Josh Dallas.
EOnline caught up with the actor at the 2012 VGAs where Levi spoke about his character and Chris Hemsworth.
"Josh Dallas played the role I'm playing, Fandral the Dashing, in the first film," Levi said. "I was a little trepidatious about stepping into that because someone had already done it. But everyone's embraced me wholeheartedly and been very cool. We shoot in London. I've spent more time there in the last five months than anywhere else. It's been an incredible adventure."
As Levi plays one of the Warrior Three and friend to Thor, he comments on Chris Hemsworth, a "rock star."
"He's an awesome guy. Brand new baby. He's a new dad, [has] a lovely wife, the whole nine. He's a rock star," Levi said.
We know that Zachary Levi will be fighting side by side Chris Hemsworth, as we've seen a glorious battle unfold through set images and video, but just how glorious will Levi be -- even shirtless?
"I can neither confirm nor deny these allegations, but I can say there will not be any lack of eye candy," he offered. "Aside from me! I'm not even talking about me. I've talking about Chris and Tom [Hiddleston] and everybody else. You'll be pleasantly surprised and happy."
