Is the man enslaved to Peter Jackson's juggernaut? I don't think so. He may be enslaved to his stylist and all I can say is, throw off those shackles of the most prosaic and dull! Let me dress you, because I'd do a way better job.
What has he done lately? I won't answer that because the answer is too stark even for me to bear.
According to this report:
Richard Armitage finds himself in a professional quandary. He is so good at playing Dwarf King Thorin Oakenshield in the Hobbit movies, it's been bad for his career.
Seriously? Does anyone believe that? A canard, in my opinion. What happened to your agent? Why are you not stuffed with roles, whether good or bad, rich or poor? Why are we hearing nothing and more nothing? What is wrong here? You are an eminently and excessively talented actor and yet, in year two, all you're doing is shlepping the latest installment of the fantastical Hobbit franchise. Does your agent have so little faith in you? Why is the world not knocking at your door? What am I missing here?
