#RichardArmitage to Narrate The Bible

Oughtabull Oratory.com just announced that fan favorite narrator, Richard Armitage, is currently recordingThe Bible for its Really Classics Division. Oughtabull is being tight-lipped about which Bible Armitage will be narrating. Producer Chancy Jewell said,” on the one hand, we think Richard  reading Scriptures/Bible/Torah is great material for him and will capitalize on his dramatic ability.”

On the the other hand, release is expected around Christmas, and the New Testament ( Holy Bible) would give Armitage the challenge of individualizing, through his voices, a company of  12 characters who can be hard to distinguish – to wit – the Apostles. Ms. Jewell went on, “Richard has the perfect experience for this – it’s another version of Thorin Oakenshield and  his  company of Dwarves, who were more or less indistinguishable from one another. We think Richard can bring each apostle to life, so to speak.”

Industry insiders close to the producers and creatives, who wish to remain anonymous in order to save their jobs, are enjoying the confusion. They claim the text to be narrated is an adaptation, or retelling of The Bible called The Bible: A Novel.  The  author(s) have not been named, but it’s rumored  that one or both of them have relevant experience novelizing stuff,  though there’s a penchant for changing the endings. That might be problematic.

Oughtabull Oratory and Richard Armitage have partnered numerous, many, lotsa, times before – even winning some awards together.

Lately, Armitage has been moonlighting with other audio producers including Audible, Oughtabull Oratory and Big Finish. Does he prefer to be heard, and not seen? Three other recent voice projects give legs to that assumption: The War of the Worlds – A radio drama; Castlevania, an animated series and; Wolverine: The Long Night, a dramatic podcast series. Armitage also has a voice role in cult VR film, Arden’s Wake, which has only been seen by a handful, but has received critical acclaim.

When asked what drew him to the work of narrating The Bible, Armitage said it was one of the first books he read as a child. He loved the story of Sampson who played around with his hair and beard to much distraction, and was a real contender.

Fans now are waiting for these audio treasures, available for pre-order and post order or in no particular order. A look at the @RCArmitage Twitter feed reveals the obvious – fans are already pre-ordering in huge numbers, without actually knowing what the product will be. Some fans have tweeted their support of the project

Fans who want to actually see Richard Armitage are eagerly awaiting Berlin Station, S. 3 – or a bit of it, The Lodge and My Zoe. The writer is not up on sales and distribution for these two films – only time will tell if we get to see them or when.

(NB: Richard Armitage was a contender, too. )



NYMag: Wolverine Among Best Podcasts



The story isn’t perfect, nor are some of the performances, but Richard Armitage’s Logan is legitimately thrilling.

Okay, then.

Oops! I forgot About Today’s Wolverine Podcast Ch.4


Here’s the link, in case you did, too.

25 words for Richard Armitage as Logan. Troubling hunting scenes – and lots of trophy animals, but even so, I don’t think a podcast need give a disclaimer at the end stating that  “no animals were harmed,” – or are they being funny?

I’m finding this very slow or maybe the episodes are just too short. It’s difficult to get engaged. The number of characters is ever expanding,  and thus, the number of suspects.

Wolverine:TLN To Be Free in August

Maybe you knew this. I didn’t. wolverine-the-long-night According to this review and article, here ( good review) – Wolverine:The Long Night will be released on all platforms, free, in August. Patience may let you listen during the one month free trial, and then wait for August, when it will be released for free – and then maybe, binge listening might be available. Otherwise, to hear more than a handful of words from Richard Armitage, free listening will run into October.

Thanks to @Kiwi_all_blacks (Claudia Ludwig) for the link

I wasn’t sure I’d feel this way again.

Oooh. I found the BTS video on Me and Richard So much stress today in the news – and now waiting for the result of the PA-18 election – so close–crazy day – and then this. It reminded me of the old days, and this.

Yes, it was something good to come home to.
