Chris Hemsworth, Zachary Levi

Chris Hemsworth isn't the only blond hunk in Thor: The Dark World.

Former Chuck star Zachary Levi had to dye his dark hair much lighter to play the role of Thor's pal Fandral in the upcoming superhero sequel.

"People always ask me now if blonds have more fun," Levi laughed about dying his hair, beard and eyebrows at Spike TV's Video Game Awards in L.A.

"No, it's really cool," the 32-year-old actor told us of joining the film franchise. "Josh Dallas played the role I'm playing, Fandral the Dashing, in the first film. I was a little trepidatious about stepping into that because someone had already done it. But everyone's embraced me wholeheartedly and been very cool. We shoot in London. I've spent more time there in the last five months than anywhere else. It's been an incredible adventure."

As for working with Hemsworth, Levi gushed, "He's an awesome guy. Brand new baby. He's a new dad, [has] a lovely wife, the whole nine. He's a rock star."

So will Levi be getting lots of shirtless screen time next to super hot Mr. Hemsworth in the film?

"I can neither confirm nor deny these allegations, but I can say there will not be any lack of eye candy," he dished. "Aside from me! I'm not even talking about me. I've talking about Chris and Tom [Hiddleston] and everybody else. You'll be pleasantly surprised and happy."
