Norwegian Actors Added To The Thing Prequel En Masse

17 March 2010 2:24 PM, PDT | SciFiCool.com | See recent SciFiCool.com news »

We spoke recently about the Norwegian mother tongue being used extensively (with English Subs) in the prequel to the original, sweet Sci-Fi horror candy, “The Thing”,  just about to get filming in British Columbia and Toronto. Who better to speak the words of Norway then actual live Norwegians? Many have just been signed to the cast and we find them good. Dennis Storhøi (The 13th Warrior), Trond Espen Seim (The Frost), Jørgen Langhelle (Svik), Stig Henrik Hoff, Jan Gunnar Røise, Kristofer Hivju (Manhunt) and Jo Adrian Haavind are getting into the fray. Man, Norwegians have cool names. Thanks Bloody Disgusting for the word. »
