Luke once spoke of Luke Us Weekly the brothers have a “healthy rivalry,” but they tend to pursue different projects. Chris and Liam, however, are close friends. didBoth can be tried. Thor

In 2017, during an interview W magazine, Chris recalled auditioning with director Kenneth Branagh and thinking he “nailed it.” Only he didn’t hear back. 

His brother Liam was living in Australia at the time and sent the tape to him. He got a callback, another call back, and finally it came down to just four or five for the final call. “I remember sitting in Vancouver, shooting Cabin in the Woods with Drew Goddard and Joss Whedon. Both of them were looking at the trades at this sort of top five guys for Thor and saying, ‘Why aren’t you in the mix here? What happened?’ I said, ‘I don’t know. I blew my audition I guess.’ None of those guys got it. My manager then called up and said, ‘You know, [Liam’s] got an older brother. Can we bring him back in?'” 

Chris got to try again and the rest, as they say, is history. “So I did an audition in Vancouver in this hotel roomWith my mum reading Anthony Hopkins‘ part,” he continued. “She must have nailed it because it got me back in the roomAnd that second audition was a lot different than my first one. With a bit of frustration about my little brother getting further than I, I went in with some motivation. I felt a bit of sibling rivalry and family. It moved quickly from there. It was awesome.”
