Actor Chris Hemsworth is no stranger to making movies in New Mexico. The “Thor” star filmed both his leading role as Thor and the superhero ensemble “The Avengers” in the Land of Enchantment. Now he’s back for the Afghan war drama “Horse Soldiers.”

During some down-time the actor has made quite an impression on locals, including one after hours stop at a locally owned Alamogordo restaurant last month. See the news story here.

On another break Hemsworth experienced the “greatest moment” of his life right here in New Mexico, sinking a full court shot on the campus of New Mexico Tech in Socorro.
