OK, so I am feeling a little–mean . . .




In light of a recent discussion stemming from comments that I and some of you have posted, I thought we’d do a little visual comparison here of the “hero” of Robin Hood and the REAL hero. I also include early 8×10 black and white glossies of each actor taken when they were roughly the same age. And yes, Jonas is nearly a decade younger than Richard.
There’s a battle of the fake tats, too! Lots to mull over . . . fear not, Hairyphobic readers, Jonas’s chest remains covered.

I'm an LA native--Lower Alabama, that is. My husband of more than 30 years and I live here on a portion of my family's former farm with two gorgeous calicos and a handsome GSD mix. My background is art education, and over the years I've been a teacher, department store photographer, sales associate and a journalist. My husband, his business partner and I have Pecan Ridge Productions, a video production company, for which I shoot & edit video and stills and manage marketing. I also still write part-time for the local paper. I love movies, music, art, photography and books, and my tastes in all of them are eclectic.

    • I went to Google images for Jonas and found that gem with him all tatted up (I assume for a role. He also looks more muscular.

      But there is no comparison to RA. And poor Jonas’s hairline was receding more in his mid-20s than Richard’s has at 40. NOW we know why he wore the Justin Beiber fringe. . πŸ˜‰

    • I will never understand why they cast Jonas in the first place. And I certainly don’t fathom why they cast this weedy, balding guy who isn’t exactly a great actor opposite someone like Richard. It is almost like he was doomed to fail.

  1. Poor, Jonas. He really doesn’t stand a chance against RA at any age. Actually, I’m sure there are probably women who prefer him to Richard. I have no idea why, but I’m sure they exist. πŸ˜‰

    • Oh, yes, there are
      Armstrong’s Angels, after all, who think Jonas is gorgeous and sexy. and find Richard old and greasy.
      For the life of me, I can’t understand that, but they do. He DOES have pretty green eyes. But overall he isn’t aging too well.

      • Old and greasy? What heresy is this!? πŸ˜‰ Jonas, is a couple of years older than me and I still greatly prefer RA. I’ll give you the pretty green eyes, but I agree he isn’t aging well. Where as, Richard is aging like a fine wine. Some people just don’t have the impeccable taste we RA fans have. πŸ™‚

          • Hmmm……when the hair was really greasy, I didn’t like it too much. But I just reminded myself what beauty layunderneath it!

            Just loved the really long hair in series 3 – especially that first time we see it after Guy gets back from London..or wherever he visited Prince John! You know, just after he had been to the Spa…….soft, silky, sweet-smelling…oh Lordy, I will have to stop thinking about that!

            My fantasy Richard has “Robin Hood” (series 1, 2 or 3) hair with either his current beautiful beard or those beautiful clean-shaven boyish cheeks.

            But then again, the guy who’s the background of this blog (with his gorgeous deep pink shirt) is so just so damned hot, I could enjoy running my fingers over the short hair just as much!

            • You knew Guy would clean up nicely. πŸ˜‰ When he returned to Nottingham, he was exquisite.
              Breathtaking. *swoon*

              I think he would look really handsome with the long hair and his current beard. I always liked Guy when his beard stubble got heavier. (Hey, look at all that hair on Thorin! And he’s a little hottie!)
              But the short hair does make one long to run one’s fingers across the top. Hot Pink Richard (as I refer to said pic) is just yummmy.

      • Armstrong’s Angels can keep Jonas, they’re welcome to him! Give me Richard any old day of the week. Which is what you’re doing, Angie! You’re Armitage’s Angel! Thanks! πŸ™‚

  2. Some people have no taste!! Armstrong’s Angel!!! Well I’d stake one “Army” over a group of so called “Angels” any day!!!

  3. Do you need me to say it? Richard just blows the doors off Jonas, for me anyway. Hey, that’s why I love this blog, because I get my dose of vitamin RA.

  4. No comparison, sorry to say! I don’t want to offend Robin’s fans ( whatever the actors name is) but they are more than welcome to him. It’s seems almost mean to set him up against RA. The battle of good vs. evil… yeah, I think the latter had a clear edge…
