First, Jason Momoa was cast as Kratos, which to be honest, the guy could fit into almost any role that would emphasize his massive stature. Then, Nick Offerman was cast as Kratos after he posted a photo on Twitter of him sporting a bald head and an incredibly full beard that perfectly suited the character.
Now, Alan Ritchson is being fan-cast as Kratos god of war T. V. series. In a bit of irony, Alan Ritchson also played Aquaman in the TV show, as did Jason Momoa. Smallville. I hope the internet isn’t saying that somehow being Aquaman is a secret criteria for being cast as Kratos.
Alan Ritchson has a long list of acting credits to his name, including the role of Raphael Teenage Mutant Ninja TurtlesHawk in The TitansAnd, most recently, Jack Reacher from Amazon Prime reaching (a highly successful release for the streaming service).
