– In recent months there has been speculation on who will play the lead role for the upcoming “Thor” movie, which is scheduled to be released in 2010. Speculation has centered on Daniel Craig, who plays James Bond in the latest “Bond” series of movies, and . This past week, Craig said he’s not interested in taking the role, saying “it doesn’t interest me at all.” The other potential candidate to take the lead role of Thor is Kevin McKidd, who was in the 2005 “Kingdom of Heaven” movie. Director Kenneth Branagh said today, “There’s been lots of talk [about casting] — I sound like a politician — but we are too early at this stage. We’re getting the story and the visual effects together and all of that is very exciting. Someone sensational is going to play the part but it is early days.” It should be interesting to see if allows to take time off from the road for several months to work on a non-WWE Studios film.

– Former WCW World champ Diamond Dallas Page noted in an email alert to his fan base that would be visiting him this week in Los Angeles as they, , Brutus Beefcake and Greg Valentine would be taking part in a roundtable discussion at the FOX Studios tomorrow morning for “The Wrestler”. That sounds to me as if FOX Searchlight is producing a feature for the eventual DVD release of the Darren Aronofsky film. Tonight is the official premiere for the film in Los Angeles, while there is a sneak preview screening for critics in New York City, so expect lots of reviews this week.

– WWE.com has special video messages to the troops from NBA stars Shaquille O’Neal, Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash and others.

– The new animated film Delgo, which features current WWE Creative team member Freddie Prinze Jr. in a starring role has the unfortunate blessing of having the poorest opening weekend gross in history, making just $511,920 for the entire weekend. E! referred to the film as the “biggest bomb” of all time.

– WWE.com has slightly updated Deuce’s profile to reflect his new persona, Sim Snuka. They’ve removed most references to his former ring name Deuce and put his new name of Sim Snuka instead. In his updated bio, they explained his character change with the following: “On the Dec. 15 edition of Raw, Sim Snuka revealed to the WWE Universe that he was a second-generation Superstar and would be going by his real name from here on out instead of the moniker of Deuce. Snuka now will be leaving his past on the Other Side of the Tracks and embracing his heritage. He’s also now being billed from Fiji.
