God of War was easily one of the defining games of the last generation and people have been waiting on the sequel God of War Ragnarok ever since the cliffhanger teaser with Thor, who we have just learned is played by Ryan Hurst.

After the reveal of the game’s existence last year, PlayStation finally gave us the official title of God of War Ragnarok during their PlayStation Showcase today, while also revealing that Ryan Hurst would be voicing Thor in the game.

While he may not be quite the household name that everyone will recognize, it’s very likely you’ve seen Hurst in some movie or TV show over the years.

There are a number of roles that many people have probably seen Hurst in over the years, ranging from film to television.

The first thing that people may recognize him from is as the deaf paratrooper Michaelson in Saving Private Ryan, but the film most will probably recognize him from is his role as Gerry Bertier in Remember The Titans.

As far as TV goes, he is most well known for his role on Sons of Anarchy as the fan-favorite Opie for 54 episodes. He has been on plenty of other shows like Bates Motel and Outsiders, as well as a two year run on The Walking Dead as Beta more recently.

God of War Ragnarok will be coming to PS5 and PS4 sometime in 2022.
