And so it goes with Mr. Armitage


“Please excuse my silence for a while. X ”


This latest tweet is concerning to me, as he does not usually post personal information…To me this sounds as if things are not progressing well with his Mum, or they did and she is recouping and he is there for support….Hoping for the later…..

As parents age,  it becomes very difficult for the children, we all know no one lives forever, yet it is heartbreaking to know decline is happening, we can do nothing but love and support them through the difficult times…..I know how he feels, I know what he/they are going through, I know it is difficult to face the inevitable with aging parents, but face it we must, but for Mr. A it is a bit different…

He knows he has the love and support of family and friends, but he also has the love and support of those in his fandom…Although we may not know him personally, we are there for him, we send him good wishes, thoughts and prayers hoping he will see them and feel the love coming his way and with it ease, even if its just a little, the pain in his heart we know he must be feeling….

So, Mr. Richard Armitage, we are thinking of you, we are sending prayers, posting good wishes to you, your Mum and family in what appears to be a difficult time…We understand your silence, we will be here to show our love and support, you just need to take care of yourself and your family, that is most important right now…God Bless you..

Healthcare troubles abound everywhere I guess…….it should not be so…

.@theresa_may@Jeremy_Hunt My mother’s urgent surgery was cancelled for a second time yesterday. It may not seem like a crisis to you but many people feel they are on borrowed time. 

It was very sad to me to read this today….I know his parents are older and I have seen their pictures many times, but somehow this is still very sad to me…I know they were postponing/rescheduling non life threatening/elective surgery in Britain, but this does not appear to be what his mother was having…Fans from all over the world are offering their prayers and thoughts, and some are being asshats too…..
So, understand this !  This man is normally so very private concerning his family and friends, that it would appear the need is dire, or at least an important surgery that she needs, hence the reason for the post…I do hope they can reschedule his Mum, and any others that find themselves in the same boat as Mrs. Armitage, ones health should never be “postponed”, nor rescheduled for any reason…
My thoughts and prayers are with the Armitage family, and I pray all will be well for Mum…And as far as the asshats go, this could be your Mum, or Dad, so lighten up, yes?

#RichardArmitage as Batman – We’ve Been Here Before -Even Closer

Armitage Agonistes

Listed by this source as only 12th choice is Richard Armitage. They’ve got Luke Evans as # 2. See more.

I don’t think I’ve seen Jon Hamm (3) do much action, but he has the look of Bruce Wayne. Jake Gyllenhaal, their first choice, is just too pretty for Batman, IMO, Luke Evans (2) is on a roll with roles these days, Matt Bomer (14) and Wes Bently (13) look almost alike to me, and not rugged enough, Keanu Reeves  (5) and Colin Farrell (7) would piss me off, though he can act. Kyle Chandler (8) seems too nice. I’ve never heard of Anson Mount (10), Jason Clarke (11) is a no for the Bruce Wayne pieces. I’ve always liked Eric Bana (6). Michael C. Hall (9) is one of the best actors among the bunch and has about the same attractiveness level as Michael Keaton. Michael…

It’s Official! Amazon commits to Lord of The Rings TV series

by Alyse

Amazon announced today that they’ve acquired the global TV rights to J.R.R. Tolkien’s “The Lord of the Rings”. From the Hollywood Reporter comes further details (note: italics are mine to highlight key words/statements that should give us plenty to discuss in the months and years ahead!):

It’s Official: ‘Lord of the Rings’ TV Series Gets Multiple-Season Commitment at Amazon
by Lesley Goldberg

It’s official: Amazon Studios is going to make a Lord of the Rings TV series.

The retail giant and streaming outlet announced Monday that it has acquired global television rights to the Lord of the Rings franchise, based on the best-selling novels by J.R.R. Tolkien. Amazon has handed out a multiple-season commitment. The Amazon LOTR series will be produced in-house at Amazon Studios alongside the Tolkien Estate and Trust, publisher HarperCollins and Warner Bros. Entertainment’s New Line Cinema. A writer has not yet been attached.

Amazon’s LOTR series will be set in Middle-earth and explore new storylines preceding Tolkien’s The Fellowship of the Ring. The deal includes a potential additional spinoff series.

“The Lord of the Rings is a cultural phenomenon that has captured the imagination of generations of fans through literature and the big screen,” said Sharon Tal Yguado, Amazon’s new head of scripted. “We are honored to be working with the Tolkien Estate and Trust, HarperCollins and New Line on this exciting collaboration for television and are thrilled to be taking The Lord of the Rings fans on a new epic journey in Middle Earth.”

The news comes 10 days after word leaked that Amazon Studios was exploring a potential TV series based on the fantasy novels and subsequent feature film franchise, which was produced by New Line. The LOTR trilogy was named Amazon customers’ favorite book of the millennium in 1999.

The news comes four months after Warner Bros. and the Tolkien estate settled an $80 million lawsuit after a five-year battle. That happened after Warners offshoot New Line Cinema and the Tolkien estate waged a courtroom battle over profit participation from the film franchise that consisted of The Fellowship of the Ring (2001), The Two Towers (2002) and The Return of the King (2003), as well as 2013 prequel The Hobbit. The property is a multibillion-dollar worldwide franchise.

“We are delighted that Amazon, with its longstanding commitment to literature, is the home of the first-ever multiseason television series for The Lord of the Rings,” said Matt Galsor, a representative for the Tolkien Estate and Trust and HarperCollins. “Sharon and the team at Amazon Studios have exceptional ideas to bring to the screen previously unexplored stories based on J.R.R. Tolkien’s original writings.”
