According to a recent documentary about Jon Mikl Thor
he was originally cast in the part of Dawson. As Thor's gimmick was playing Thor the god (similar to the Marvel comic), the casting would have fit well with the movie's plot points. Thor even was involved with the pre production of the movie and participated in costume fittings. Thor was fired and the part was recast as Vincent D'Onofrio
