Audible just announced a new audio book narration by Richard Armitage. That’s something to look forward to, if you don’t mind not watching him – but what else is there?
Upcoming performances we know about are Ocean’s 8 to be released in early June, My Zoe, the Julie Delpy film which seems like a supporting role and is probably well over a year away, and a supporting role in The Lodge, a horror/psychological thriller, which is also probably a year away. Both films might languish in No Distribution Land and might have limited release, if any. Currently, there’s the hugely disappointing and for me, slow as Hell, Wolverine podcast, where one can actually count Armitage’s lines in each episode. That leaves the likely probability of another season of Berlin Station. From my point of view, while I love watching him weekly for 10 weeks ( or 9, as the case might be), the show has been mediocre, the character is still a pretty blank slate and I feel a sort of resentment that filming it has maybe deprived him of some better stuff.
Right now, there’s nothing new on the horizon that we know about, though it’s possible audio books may drop like flies.
Maybe the exposure he enjoys in Ocean’s 8, in a comedy role, will make a difference. Though he has a supporting role, he’s one of the only men in the film ( aside from James Corden) and even though the role is supporting and the focus is on the all star woman heist team, from all accounts, it appears that the plot and the motive behind the heist, all revolve around his character. So we’ll see.
Meanwhile, the landscape is barren, and we wait.
