Chris Hemsworth has become one of the most sought after actors in Hollywood. Best known as Marvel’s hammer-wielding superhero in the massive, global hits "Thor" and "The Avengers," as well as their successfully sequels, "Thor: The Dark World" and "The Avengers: Age of Ultron." He will reprise this beloved role in the upcoming "Thor: Ragnarok" and "Avengers: Infinity War - Part 1."
This summer he will show his comedic side joining Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig and Kate McKinnon in the comedy ensemble "Ghostbusters," in which director Paul Feig brings his fresh approach to the supernatural comedy. Hemsworth first displayed his naturalness for comedy by hosting SNL, not just once but twice in the same year. He also starred in the box office hit “Snow White and the Huntsman" opposite Kristen Stewart and Charlize Theron and it's imaginative follow-up “The Huntsman: Winter’s War,” opposite Theron, Jessica Chastain and Emily Blunt. He made his U.S. film debut in J.J. Abrams’ “Star Trek,” playing the pivotal role of George Kirk. His additional feature film credits include the comedy “Vacation,” Michael Mann’s “Blackhat,” the Joss Whedon-scripted “The Cabin in the Woods” and the remake of “Red Dawn.”
Hemsworth recently reunited with director Ron Howard for “In the Heart of the Sea” after working together on “Rush,” where he portrayed Formula One driver James Hunt. This is when he teamed up with TAG Heuer for the first time. Rush was the beginning of a beautiful friendship, which naturally evolved into Chris Hemsworth joining the TAG Heuer family of brand ambassadors, as the true fan of the brand he is. Chris Hemsworth works hard and chooses his roles carefully. He handles pressure by taming it, and turning it to his advantage. DontCrackUnderPressure was coined with him in mind.
