They are from the Wellington red carpet. Lovely candids. The color versions were done by yatanis.tumblr.com:
I’ve really enjoyed looking at these photos. I apologize if they belong to someone, but I’ve seen them posted all over.
Anyway, I have been fairly uninspired to write much lately, so I’m afraid my blogging has suffered. I have been going through some (mental/physical) health issues that have absorbed my attention. I hope things are stabilized for now, and I can get back to Armitageing as usual.
So news today seems to be that Richard Armitage would love to be Batman, but doesn’t know where the rumor started. This is according to a tweet from @koolkiwis. Leena Tailor of @koolkiwis apparently participated in an interview of RA, Orlando Bloom and Lee Pace in New York City today, and that was one of the questions.
This reminded me of the time that there was a rumor (pre-Daniel Craig) that Hugh Jackman was being considered for the role of James Bond. When someone asked HJ if he was interested, he always did the “Bond..James Bond” quote. He later admitted that he himself had started the rumor! Not that I think RA started the Batman rumor, but it doesn’t take much to start one!
We still don’t know what Richard Armitage’s next project will be. Apparently he was recently in London and did a voice over for a commercial. Now he seems to be in New York City, since he was at an interview here today. I will now be keeping an extra alert look out when I pass by his building! LOL!
There have also been some very pretty Thorin pictures around. Including this one from a 2014 The Hobbit calendar:
I have been thinking again about what it means to be a fan. As everyone in the Armitage Army prepares for the big day, August 22, RA’s birthday, I have been thinking that I’m not really a good fan. I have no urge to send a birthday greeting! Bad me! I will probably make a contribution on the http://www.justgiving.com/Richard-Armitage website, which I have done before. I like to give to charity and why not support one of RA’s chosen ones?
Am I the only one who hasn’t added my name to one of the many birthday cards to RA? No disrespect meant at all to anyone who has. It’s all good. I’ve just wondered to myself why I haven’t wanted to. Anyone else thought about this?
Just because. Hobbit interview vs. Robin Hood interview.
