Is Chris Hemsworth The New Brad Pitt?

  • Pin it

After watching Snow White and the Huntsman, a simple, yet stingy question popped in my mind: is Chris Hemsworth the new Brad Pitt?

I know, I know, frown all you want, but if you take a moment and think about it, as a cinematic stereotype, Chris Hemsworth fills the gap left by Brad Pitt (circa Fight Club & Snatch). Physically, Chris Hemsworth is now at his peak shape (all he needs is a red bed sheet around his neck, a ginormous hammer and lo and behold! Here’s Thor!).

Brad Pitt, too involved in cult projects (genre The Tree of Life) and family life (Angelina & their kids) put his Olympian physique on hold. Will Chris Hemsworth be embraced as the new Brad Pitt? (the photos below come from here)

No! He’s Chris Hemsworth and Brad Pitt is still Brad Pitt who has grown older. That’s life right? At the time Brad was seen as “the new Robert Redford”.
Chris is the guy for a younger generation. Looking good? Oh, sure! As for Brad before Fight Club and Snatch he made his name yet with more serious acting parts.

I never liked the idea that someone has to come along and replace someone as the new Robert Redford, Denzil Washington or Brad Pitt. Each actor brings something of their own to their roles and each has their own style.
The only thing that I have seen Chris H in is Thor, and he was okay in that. I have yet to see SnowWhite and the Huntsman.
I am sure he will prove or disprove himself with his other acting roles.
