  • "I read a fantastic script that was action-packed and full of great characters. When I heard who was involved -- and the cast list dropped yesterday -- and the opportunity to work with Taika Waititi, who I think is one of the most brilliant directors coming through, I made the decision it was something that I wanted to be a part of. And the character is fantastic. He's got a great arc to him. Obviously I can't say too much about it, but I'm really thrilled to be a part of the Marvel universe and to be working on Thor: Ragnarok."
  • "Suffice to say, I have it in my contract that I don't have to shave my head until after my Star Trek press!"
  • "The irony is that you won't actually see my body in this movie under the costume that I have, but it's important for me to get into the zone and feel."
  • "I just started shooting Ragnarok on the Gold Coast with Chris Hemsworth. I read a fun, action-packed script and love my character, Skurge. I get to work a lot with Cate Blanchett. She and I were in Lord of the Rings together, but we never actually shared any screentime. I’m looking forward to that; should be a fun experience."
  • "I think this is going to feel like a buddy-buddy Thor movie. Starring Hulk and Thor, they’ll be good together."
  • "So, the coolest thing about Skurge? I think is probably his journey through the film. There’s change and there’s - he finishes the film in a different place than he starts and, as an actor, that’s always something you look for."
