New Projects: Another New Audible Book

New Projects #RichardArmitage portrays a Jew

story here.  Thanks to the RA German Board for the photos and Guylty for the links.

One way or another, Richard Armitage can’t get away from tattoos.

Alas, this might be the only work of his I pass on. I’m off Holocaust works. But, we’ll see.

I think this is only the second time we’ve seen him in red.
I thought I recalled another one out there without a shirt, but if so, I couldn’t find it.

#RichardArmitage Plays Another Short Guy

The irony that Peter Jackson cast 6’2- 6’3″ Richard Armitage to play a dwarf under five feet has been the fodder of interviews and fan talk for years.

Now he’s set to play Wolverine in a pod cast audio series.

Funny thing, that. It turns out,  the “real” comic character, Wolverine is only 5’3″ tall. One of the potential pitfalls in casting Hugh Jackman for the role, was that he’s about the same height as Richard Armitage. ( In both cases,  reports of the exact measurement vary).



Here    is a discussion of how the directors handled the disparity. My research revealed that many comic book fans were outraged that Wolverine was going to be played by an actor of  over 6′ in the X-Men films, because his height was integral to his character. Sort of how angry Hobbit fans were about Richard Armitage being cast as Thorin (impossible!)

The film-makers thought a very short Wolverine, towered over by female actors,  would not be sexy enough for the film, so they didn’t take much care in making Jackman look  shorter after a few films.
