It looks like 's time on History's Vikings TV show has put him in good stead. All that fighting and axe swinging may have nabbed him a role on upcoming fantasy epic, Warcraft.

According to Variety, Fimmel is up to play one of the four leads of the film. The last we heard, and were also being tipped joining him as the adaptations leads.

At the moment details surrounding the plot and casting are still heavily under wraps. A few months ago a lengthy potential synopsis did hit the web, but we've yet to receive definite confirmation regarding its contents.

Warcraft is of course a video gaming phenomenon. After starting out fairly low-key in the 1990s, it exploded into the mainstream lexicon with its massive multiplayer online roleplaying game, World of Warcraft.

What do you think? What kind of character would you like to see Fimmel play? Let us know below.
