Richard Armitage as Francis Dolarhyde or Oh the Places You’ll Go — Edition 35, Maybe 36

This isn’t about Richard. It’s about myself and the crazy things I’ve done since becoming a fan. Like some of you feel, Richard Armitage in a period drama sounds good to me, but then I have said I wanted to see Richard in something that was ugly and damaged. But Hannibal? Really? I guess after following Captain America so closely, anything is possible. LOL!

A possible look for Francis:


Yep, that’s right, I skipped a report on all the other places I’ve gone that I would have never set foot near if it weren’t for our guy.

Let me just say this about my foray into the comic book world. I actually enjoyed it. Yes, I’m admitting that publicly. I also thought Richard Armitage did a great job as a bad guy in that franchise, and I expect nothing less in this one. And hallelujah, it will be for six episodes instead of about six minutes.

Note to self: must check out Red Dragon at the library. No, seroiusly, must check it out. No, I’m not kidding, go check it out.

  1. Just ordered Red Dragon for my Kindle! Totally not my ordinary type of book to read. LOL

  2. Can’t do it, sadly. I want to sleep at night. I still want to see him in a western. OK, it’s a stretch but doable!!?

  3. Western? ZORRO….He would totally rock that mask……and whip ;)

  4. I agree. You really must check it out. It’s one of the Thomas Harris’ best books, followed by The Silence of the Lambs. Then everything went to crap after that. It can be grisly at times but only during the profiling while Will Graham is trying to figure out how the murders have been done, as the tension rachets up.

    But there was also something to be sympathetic about with Dolarhyde (something that I wonder if RA will tap into) – but I’ll leave that up to you and others who haven’t read Harris’ books yet. I first read Red Dragon in 1985 or so, and a few times again in the past few years (I even have the 2000 reissue with a new foreword by Harris, as well as the audiobook), but only because I have never gotten certain images out of my head since the first reading.

  5. I have been reading on the character, and I’m already drawn in. I will probably breakdown and buy the ebook.

  6. This is not my kind of thing – I hate violence and gore. But I know Richard will play the part brilliantly – something he can really get his teeth into, so to speak!!

  7. Going to order the book used and be educated, so I won’t have to cling to a wine glass.

  8. Rita, did you see today’s tweet? If not, just know that himself is totally working the crowd. :D

  9. Chrissy, I agree with you!
