Welcome to Fun Day Sunday! Today we’re having more fun with CRAzy Captioning: Richard Armitage Style. For the uninitiated, CRAzy Captioning is where I take a character portrait from one of the exquisitely talented Richard Armitage’s many roles and provide a caption that gives an alternative context to what is showing in the image.
I am aiming for humor here and with the utmost respect for Mr. Armitage as a person and as an artist. I just have a funny bone and enjoy employing it now and again. And Mr. Armitage seems to have a funny bone, too, because he has such a delightfully joyous laugh in interviews–as evidenced by the example below in the brilliant video compilation snippet “Richard Armitage: Ha-ha-ha!” by Britu21:
Richard Armitage is such a wonderful actor and storyteller that we his fans enjoy seeing him in new artistic projects, discussing his work, and as in this case, having a little fun. Besides, we have to amuse ourselves somehow until his next artistic project–The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey–is released to theatres in December 2012. Richard Armitage is going to be brilliant as Thorin Oakenshield–as we saw in the movie trailer in December 2011! But we knew that already. The man is a chameleon as an actor and master storyteller, immersing himself in his roles and becoming the persona he is portraying. Sighhhh! So two years to wait to see our favorite actor and storyteller in a new artistic project is a very very very long time to wait. But we’re hanging in there faithfully, Richard. Uh, I mean, Mr. Armitage.
So, I hope everyone enjoys today’s little bit of fluff and fun. Thanks so much to several of my friends (as noted below) who suggested some of the images for which I wrote the picture captions–although Judith and Jeannie provided great captions for their images and I used their suggestions, with an added caption of my own on Judith’s. An additional part of the fun is for you to see if you can “best” my/our captions by providing your caption suggestions in a comment and indicating by letter, which image you are recaptioning. So “let the games begin”–Robin Hood series 3, Episode 5 title.
