Chris Hemsworth is best known for playing Thor in the Marvel Universe movies. Liam Hemsworth may have been a lead in “The Hunger Games” saga, but is most known for being the ex-husband of Miley Cyrus. Both are also known as the heartthrob brothers with massive estates just miles apart in their native Australia.
As popular as the two may be, there are two additional Hemsworth brothers that are quickly gaining cult followings and have been credited in just as many feature films.
Yes, that’s right! The Hemsworth family is rolling out actors like the Baldwins. While you may know Larry Hemsworth from “The Good Place”, Luke Hemsworth, is the lesser-known brother who is now taking on permanent roles.
Most of Luke Hemsworth’s roles are readily known in Australia. He began acting on several television shows including “Last Man Standing,” “Blue Heelers,” the popular Australian soap opera “Neighbours,” and “Bikie Wars: Brothers in Arms” which has strong “Sons of Anarchy” vibes. According to IMDb, the older Hemsworth brother has had over twenty-eight different roles.
With a few key roles, Luke Hemsworth is becoming a household name here in the states and is creeping up to his brothers, Liam and Chris. Most will recognize Luke Hemsworth for his cameo in “Thor: Ragnarok,” which starred Chris Hemsworth.
Funny enough, in a comical scene from the movie Luke played Thor in a play while the real Thor played by Chris Hemsworth spectated. As short as the scene was, both Luke and Chris Hemsworth can now say that they have both played a Marvel superhero.
While “Thor: Ragnarok” was a small role on the big screen, the third Hemsworth brother is becoming even more popular with a big role on the small screen with his role as Ashley Stubbs on HBO’s “Westworld.” Though the show has been on air since 2016, it has gained new popularity in the wake of coronavirus binge-watching madness. According to Warner Media, “Westworld” is gaining viewership over popular shows like “Game of Thrones” and “Big Little Lies,” which means fans will be seeing a lot more of this Hemsworth.
Luke Hemsworth is also no stranger to action and his “Westworld” role gives fans all the action that they are missing in the off-season of Liam and Chris Hemsworth. He has also revealed that it’s his favorite part of the job.
“I love to do everything I can physical. There’s always a certain point where people go, ‘No, you’re not allowed to do that.’ But I’m a physical person; I spend a lot of time training so I can handle it. I can do it,” he said in an interview with Access Hollywod.
Luckily for Luke Hemsworth, and fans alike, the fourth season of “Westworld” is already in the works.
