It’s Thorin Thursday and this compilation of clips from Richard’s various red carpet appearances and interviews for The Hobbit should fit right in. It tends to disprove Richard’s claims of being such a moody, mean, dour fellow. Lots of great moments here guaranteed to make you chuckle, giggle and grin a lot! Enjoy.
I overlooked this little nugget from the Japanese press junket for The Hobbit (as did Ali, apparently) and it’s so cute–it’s a must-see!
The hair. Heavy stubble. Open collar on that denim shirt, rolled up sleeves baring those awesome forearms. That long, lean jeans-clad leg. The footwear.

I have this notion that events in our lives happen when they happen for good reasons, even if we don’t know those reasons at the time.
“If this opportunity had come to me ten years ago, I would not have survived,” Armitage says. “I wouldn’t have known what to do with it. Now I feel I’ve got an opinion to bring to it, my own interpretation of the character in the book, but other things as well, attitudes that I think we can make resonate with a contemporary audience:honor, loyalty, nobility,corruption.”

Hooray for the opportunity of a lifetime happening in the right place at the right time for our favorite actor. He’s mature, seasoned, savvy, confident. Ready to take on the world!

These just keep popping up. Does it feel as if that drought was a l-o-o-ng time ago now? We certainly can’t complain about not enough RA now, can we? RA finally gets interviewed by someone who is actually taller than he is. Cute exchange at the end. And had some fanart fun with flirtatious Armitage from TODAY>
