Well, this is interesting. Hemsworth was never on my radar for this role. Originally the top three contenders for the role were Matthew Fox, Gerard Butler and Colin Farrell (listed in order of my preference). Personally, I think Jim Caveziel would have been perfect for this role about 10 years ago, but that's neither here nor there. As it stands, the studio had decided to jettison the original idea of picking up the movie series in the middle of Rapp's adult life and instead start with the...........wait for it..................origin story that American Assassin provides. I haven't read it yet. I'm currently reading Extreme Measures, and will go back and read American Assassin (which is a prequel) once I'm finished with the original time line. Having said all that, I agree whole-heartedly with the offer going out to Chris Hemsworth. I think he'd be spot-on as Mitch Rapp. Only concern is that the studio gets too "liberal" with the series and tries to wussify certain aspects of Rapp and his methods and the politics that drive the story.

EXCLUSIVE: After trying since 2008 to turn Vince Flynn’s bestselling novel series into an action franchise, CBS Films thinks it has found the actor to play terrorist hunter Mitch Rapp. I’m told that CBS Films has offered Chris Hemsworth $10 million to star in American Assassin.

I'll reply to myself since no one loved me enough to respond the first time:

Hemsworth is out. No time to fit this into his schedule of Thor movies, Avenger movies, and Robopocalypse.

And so the search goes on.
