It may or may not be typecasting, but a top Major League pitcher will be playing a Viking warrior on History’s hit drama series “Vikings.”
The cable channel announced today that New York Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard, who has the nickname “Thor,” is throwing down the hammer this week on the set of “Vikings” in Ireland. Syndergaard will guest star in one episode in season six of the show.
“Syndergaard will play the character ‘Thorbjorn,’ a Viking warrior who is loyal to Ivar the Boneless, who he sees as a God on earth,” History says in the announcement.
“Vikings” returns for its midseason five premiere on Wednesday, Nov. 28.
