Thor - Branagh Swaps Superheroes For The Stage
Thor director Kenneth Branagh is taking a break from movies to star in a play in his Northern Ireland hometown.
The British thespian stepped behind the camera last year (10) to direct the upcoming superhero blockbuster, but he's now returning to his dramatic roots by taking on a role in French farce The Painkiller by Francis Veber.
Branagh, who was born in Belfast, Northern Ireland, will head home to appear at the city's Lyric Theatre from 23 September (11) until 16 October (11).
He will appear alongside Welsh TV star Rob Brydon, according to Variety.
