Trivia

  • Levi was the first choice to play Fandral in the first film, Thor, but had to drop out due to scheduling conflicts with Chuck. Ironically, he was finally able to assume the role in the sequel when Josh Dallas, who played the role in the first film, was unable to reprise it due to conflicts with his own series, Once Upon a Time.
  • Part of the reason why Levi accepted the role of Flynn Rider was so that he could be in a Kingdom Hearts game someday, which would not be fulfilled until Kingdom Hearts III.
  • He and his wife were divorced on April 1, 2015.
  • Levi revealed in 2019 that he would reprise his role as Flynn Rider in a live-action remake.[1] He even said that he wouldn't and doesn't let anyone voice Flynn Rider.
