I can’t wait to hear which of The Anglophile Channel’s questions elicited that playful response!
Well, one of the world premieres at least. Hey, it’s show biz! Expect hyperbole!
I can’t stop laughing at this teaser. And I cannot wait for the entire interview!
Very special thanks to Marlise Boland of The Anglophile Channel for the quick turn-around on this teaser!!
BACKGROUND: In December, RA was voted The Anglophile Channel‘s Favorite British Artist of the Year in a hard-fought race of fan votes. Today RA sat down with The Anglophile Channel Creator and Executive Producer Marlise Boland for what ended up being a lively, fun and extensive interview.
When she posted this photo, Marlise acknowledged the support of the British Consulate: “The Armitage Interview would NOT have been possible were in not for the generosity and hospitality of the British Consulate General’s office, their wonderful staff…and especially the lovely Deputy Consul-General Bernadette! Thank you all from the bottom of our grateful hearts! UKinCalifornia – British Consulates General Los Angeles and San Francisco.”
We’d like to add our thanks as well. And thanks again to Marlise and The Anglophile Channel. We can’t wait to see the interview!
MORE NEW PHOTOS: RA in LA: The “Favorite British Artist of the Year (2013)” Sits Down for an Interview with the Anglophile Channel
In December, RA was voted The Anglophile Channel‘s Favorite British Artist of the Year, and today sat down with The Anglophile Channel Creator and Executive Producer Marlise Boland for what appears to have been an extensive interview. Around the same time, other photos were released by the LA British Consulate of RA signing the guest book, and a photo of Marlise and RA standing on what certainly appeared to be the interview set… what a lovely idea, to hold the interview in the British Consulate.
I have to lead with this photo because of the huge compliment RA paid Marlise: “Having a laugh with Richard Armitage~ He had me in STITCHES the whole time. Best interview ever! (Which, interestingly…is what he said about me ).”
I’m so happy The Anglophile Channel and its creator made such a terrific impression!
Another new one: RA accepts the award! (Tho The Anglophile Channel said they had a great time, they also implied that RA may have cheated at office-chair racing! Say it ain’t so! I need to hear more about this!)
Ah-HA! The infamous office-chair race! I cannot stop laughing! I can’t WAIT to see this VIDEO! Thanks, thanks, THANKS, The Anglophile Channel!
Here are the rest photos… so far:
More photos… Sorry for the delay, but – contrary to many people’s opinion – I do have something of a life!
Wish I’d been there, too, Mr. Hewson…
Yes, I’ve had a BRAINSTORM, inspired by the Snow White/Dwarves meme Richard Armitage US member Bonnie Ingalls shared…
Not to mention this classic, which has been floating around forever…
THE BRAINSTORM: Peter Jackson should produce a Snow White remake with Thorin’s Company of dwarves, and co-starring Thorin as the new, decidedly un-sappy Handsome Prince!
I mean, srsly, who knows how tall Snow White was!?!?!?
THINK ABOUT IT: “Snow White Comes to Middle-Earth…”? “Snow White and her Dwarf King…”? “Snow & Thorin: A Love Story…”? And RA could SING again!
Who’s with me on this!?!??!
Happy Valentines Day from RA US to YOU! Theme #1: photos to be viewed while listening to Mary-Chapin Carpenter’s “Shut Up and Kiss Me…”.
RArmy troops, as part of the celebration of RA winning the Favorite British Artist of the Year Award, The Anglophile Channel will be sitting down with him for an interview, and we get to submit questions!
“We can’t promise we’ll get to them all, of course, as our time will be limited, but we might get to a couple,” TAC says. “We know there are subjects you’re ALL tired of hearing about but we’re also introducing RA to an audience outside of his Army. But YOU guys are the ones that won him the Favorite British Artist of the Year Award so you deserve to at least request anything you’d like us to ‘unearth’ during our visit! Cheers!”
Make him think! Make him laugh! But don’t delay; ask today! And good luck!
RA is facing some serious decisions; I hope his Pinter/PROUST project – a script by a brilliant writer, based on the work of a brilliant writer – is an indication of his future focus. Until we hear about his next project, I thought some observations that George Clooney made to the Washington Post were incredibly insightful – and sound – and I’d love for RA to take them to heart.
Background: Producer-director-actor-writer George Clooney’s career was rocking along nicely until it was almost killed due to a disastrous turn as an iconic hero (Batman), even though the film was helmed by a highly respected director. Today, Clooney is an international superstar and one of the most respected filmmakers around. Clooney recently sat down with the Washington Post to talk about his career, and reveals what the “Batman” experience taught him.
The Post calls his subsequent professional choices a “strategy borne of what might be called the “After ‘Batman’” era of Clooney’s career…”
Clooney learned an invaluable lesson from “Batman.” In fact, he tells the Post simply, “I don’t have the same career without that film.”
His explanation may surprise you.
“Until then, I had just been an actor,” he said. “I had only been an actor in TV series, and then I got ‘E.R.’ and ‘E.R.’ became this big thing.” His breakout feature roles — “One Fine Day,” “From Dusk Till Dawn” and “The Peacemaker” — all came about because he was eager for the work and what looked like juicy roles. “And then I get a call, ‘Do you want to be in ‘Batman?’ And I’m like, ‘Yeah.’”
“With all of those things, it was just me as an actor going, ‘Look at the part,’” Clooney continues. “And after I got killed for ‘Batman & Robin,’ I realized I’m not going to be held responsible just for the part anymore, I’m going to be held responsible for the movie. And literally, I just stopped. And I said, ‘It now has to be only screenplay. Because you cannot make a good film from a bad screenplay.’”
That bears repeating: “You cannot make a good film from a bad screenplay.”
