Taika Waititi talks 'Thor: Ragnarok' and playing Korg

Director Taika Waititi and Chris Hemsworth
Taika Waititi seems to know talent when he sees it, which is probably why the director casts himself in all of his own films. The tongue-in-cheek director has a rather dry sense of humour, and that makes him the perfect comic relief on-screen, whether you're talking about What We Do In The Shadows, or his new film, Marvel's Thor: Ragnarok where he plays the oddly lovable rock monster, Korg.
