In some ways, Chris and Liam Hemsworth’s careers have been similar. They both rose to fame thanks to their roles in huge Hollywood franchises: Avengers and The Hunger Games, respectively. In other ways, though, they’ve taken very different paths -- and more power to them. Perhaps most surprisingly, they’ve never appeared in a film together -- though it sounds like they’re planning on changing that soon.
When Liam Hemsworth came to Hollywood, his career took off pretty quickly -- he starred in The Last Song with Miley Cyrus before becoming Gale to Jennifer Lawrence’s Katniss. He’s managed to forge a successful career and largely stayed out of his older brother’s shadow, even though he famously beat Liam to play Thor, the role that made him a superstar. Chris Hemsworth, on the other hand, has proven he has enough versatility as an actor to be seen as more than just an Avenger.
If there’s been any sibling rivalry since the two brothers became movie stars, it’s never gone public. On the contrary, it seems like Liam Hemsworth has found nothing but support from his older brother as he’s made his way through his own career:
I really look up to my brother Chris. I’ve worked with a lot of people that have been in really great positions in the past 11 years, and Chris has a stronger work ethic than most. He’s so focused. I’m thankful that I have him and am able to use his resources and his knowledge. I call him all the time about scripts and get his opinion. ‘Should I do this? Should I do that?’ We’re looking to do a film this year together, which is like a big action-comedy thing.
Okay, yes please. We already know both of them are well-suited for action movies. They’ve also both proven to be great comedic actors as well. It’s easy to imagine that their brotherly bond would only amplify their comedic timing. When speaking with Men's Health, Liam Hemsworth didn’t give any more details about their potential future plans but, if he’s talking about it in an interview, that could mean they’re at least a bit more than hypothetical. There seem to be infinite possibilities for how it could play out. Will they play brothers? Friends? Enemies? Honestly, any option sounds like it would be worth the price of admission.
