Supersize Richard? The more the merrier or Stay on that treadmill please?

My determination to lose a few pounds has got me thinking about Mr Armitage and his beyond hot body.

I’m not trying to be vulgar, but that body really makes you want to give it a sponge bath…

We know Richard looks after himself, exercises regularly (I need pictures as proof please).

We know he’s a method actor and goes the extra mile to play his role convincingly.

We’ve seen him super skinny as a tormented Lucas North in Spooks.

Get the man some fish&chips asap!

He’s bulked up as John Porter in Strike Back.

It looks like John has been eating all his vegetables!

Richard’s playing a stocky dwarf Thorin in The Hobbit, although the effect is achieved thanks to padding.

Despite the saying about men who wear big shoes, they seem to need extra padding…

Now he’s sporting a surprisingly slim frame as Gary the teacher in Black Sky.

Gary Morris Armitage

I hope the tornado doesn’t blow him away 🙂

My question is:

Would you like to see Richard Armitage gain weight for a film role?

I’m not talking about a few kilograms to bulk up.

I mean Val Kilmer proportions (sorry Val).

Step off the treadmill and grow a double chin and bear gut.

Would Richard still be as appealing to you?

Hello Ladies, meet Gary!

I hope you are preparing for the collective reading of Sharon Kay Penman’s The Sunne in Splendour.

I’m taking a rest from RIII today, which doesn’t mean I’m not ripping through the book !

Because I mean to write about the story in more detail, I’m actually trying to take my time, underlining things to mention in my Richard III for Dummies posts  (Part 1 and Part 2) , which is something new, as I love reading super fast.

A Book a day keeps the Brain Rot away!

But I have another saying:

An Armitage Goodie makes the whole day Yummy! 

While I was busy with life and other silliness, @Todd_Garner gave us a RA boost with a pic and a name reveal for Richard’s character in Black Sky!

The man is teasing us, and it feels Oh! so good 😉

Wet has never looked this good, I think you’ll all agree!

It’s nice to see Armitage not being tortured, suicidal, drowning or on the verge of a mental breakdown.

I think Richard should take of that shirt and suit before he catches a chill 😉

Now that Richard is comfy relaxing in bubbles, it’s time to focus on the character name:

It’s an interesting choice.

According to Wiki the popularity of Gary as a given name in the United States has been on a very slow, but steady decline.

In the 1990s, this name was the 170th most popular, given to around 0.1% of newborn males.

Here’s a chart:

The short form for Gary is either Gar or Gaz.

Am I the only one that’s a tad disappointed that he’s not John?

Nevertheless, a rose by any other name would smell as sweet 🙂
