Travis Fimmel first turned heads as a Calvin Klein model, and since then the Aussie has turned actor in the likes of Vikings and The Baytown Outlaws. Now he’s scored his biggest break yet, as Variety reports that after a long search, Legendary Pictures wants him to take the lead role in the adaptation of the World Of Warcraft video game (currently simply titled Warcraft).
No formal offer has been made yet, but sources claim believe Fimmel will indeed sign on for one of the project’s four man characters. Unfortunately it’s known exactly which character he’ll play. He’ll certainly make an extremely handsome addition to the cast – and if you want to see just how hot he is, click here.
Last month it was reported Fimmel was on a short list of candidates, along with the likes of Paul Dano, Anton Yelchin and Anson Mount. It isn’t known if any of those actors will be offered any of the other major role. It was recently revealed that Paula Patton is in talks for a role, and that Colin Farrell was offered another part. Patton’s negotiations are still ongoing, but Farrell’s deal isn’t progressing as quickly.
Duncan Jones (Moon, Source Code) is directing from a screenplay by Charles Leavitt (Seventh Son). Shooting is scheduled to begin in January in Vancouver. It’s currently due for release on December 18th, 2015.
