LOS ANGELES: The Hemsworth brothers were recently offered cameos on the hit TV show, The Simpsons. However, the executive producer of the show, Al Jean, provided that actors Chris and Liam turned the offer.
In an interview to News Corp, the 57-year-old also said that actor Hugh Jackman also refused to do the show. "We tried to get the Hemsworth brothers but they passed. We wrote a part for them but they said no," Jean said.
His comments came after he was asked if The Simpsons would ever feature another Australian-themed episode.

Chris is known for playing the iconic Thor, while brother Liam is widely known for The Hunger Games. Their brother Luke is known for Neighbours and the TV series Westworld.
