What a Year for Richard Armitage

With the release of ‘Captain America’ where he only had a few lines, he was still on the promotional tour. This seemed to be the first tangible sign that his star was really on the rise from ‘The Hobbit.’ Despite all of it, I’m still flabbergasted that Peter Jackson selected him. Of course this has nothing to do with RA’s abilities and everything to do with my taste almost never matching what the masses like. And then for him to end with such a great ranking on IMDb! Phew! The wave he’s been riding will no doubt go for another year and more. Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy. Yeah, I know we don’t really know him. I’m talking about his public persona, which is damn fine. :D

This post obviously has nothing new in it, but I have to exult.

And I have to share this wallpaper made by Tanni Tanni even if some of you have already seen it. It sums up the mood:

  1. Thank you for sharing. Must agree with your comments wholeheartedly! Have a wonderful New Year’s Eve. Have fun and stay safe!

  2. Yeah baby! Here is to 2012 being Mr. Armitage’s year. And ours!

    On the same note, I would like to wish everyone a fabulous New Year with all the blessings that life has to offer.

    Thank you frenzy and the other ladies for this website and for making a little room for me to indulge in my RA affliction. Whereas most don’t get it, you have all been so wonderul and understanding. Thank you for including me in your community.

  3. This wall paper is fabulous!!!!!!!!!!:))))

  4. Yes indeed – a great year for Richard’s career! I just can’t wait until December to see him onscreen. I hope he can find time to put in a few more appearances somewhere.
    Love that calendar! Happy New Year to you Frenz!

  5. Isn’t that wallpaper scrumptious? Happy New Year!

  7. Yay! It’s going to be a great year for mr Armitage, for sure. I hope he enjoys it all and that it will bring him loads of more creatively challenging roles for us to enjoy. I’m just so glad our favourite workaholic’s hard work seems to be paying off :-)

    Love the Tanni’s wallpaper too!

  8. Happy New Year 2012 to you and let’s hope for lots of RA in it ;o) ! Thank you for sharing the wonderful wallpaper!

  9. Oooh, how cool that you showed us the graph on IMDB Pro. That looks like music to my mathematical eyes!

  10. Exciting news, Frenz, thanks for posting it.

    Happy New Year, and I wish you a happy, healthy 2012

  11. 2012 will be the year of Richard Armitage! I’m confident he rang in the new year with a glass of champagne, since he has made no secret of his love of it. I’ll drink a toast to his success too. Very shortly, everyone will know his name, just as they memorized Orlando Bloom and Elijah Wood after the release of LOTR. He probably will lament the loss of his privacy, but he more than deserves to have his gifted acting abilities recognized. .

  12. HAPPY New Year, frenz! And to all the commenters, too.
    Yes, perhaps 2012 /13 will be when Richard Armitage finally goes mainstream , with all the challenges and joys that will bring. (And we will all be gracious about sharing him :D )

  13. Thank God for the Hobbit teaser this year! Wonderful way to end 2011 :D
