Me thinks that copious amounts of commonwealth and U.S. colonial booze will be consumed during the various Hobbit film [(1)] parties and events mentioned so far for this year (not to mention the events yet to be scheduled):
July 14th Comic-Con three hour press conference in San Diego
September – October Press, Parties, and what have you yet to be revealed
November 28th Wellington Hobbit Premiere
December 14th US Hobbit Premiere (in LA or NYC?) in 182 days [(2) see countdown clock]
And though we know that Richard Armitage has very long legs [(3) left]–sighhhhh!–I doubt that they are “hollow”. FYI in the U.S. vernacular, referring to someone having a hollow leg means that they could fill up the leg with booze or food. So dear Richard, you don’t want the booze to go to your head and make you all wobbly. The “world’s tallest dwarf” wobbly? Timber! Tthhuudd! He bounced. Ha!
Besides, this slowed down interview video [(4) below] making Mr. Armitage seem slightly tipsy– when he really wasn’t–is hysterically amusing and charming, but not probably good press for The Hobbit. Ha! I have seen the actual real speed footage of this interview and RA is perfectly fine and not tipsy.

So a word of advice to RA and his castmates. Pace yourselves blokes! Don’t let the Celts, Scots, Fenians (Billy Connolly, Graham McTavish, James Nesbitt, etc.) [(5) The Dwarfs] goad you into drinking games or challenges–you’ll lose. Ha!
And as my good friend Kitty put it, “When I celebrate, I want to experience it [an activity] with complete mental clarity.” Well put, Kitty!
So, to my readers, please suggest any other humorous advice (picture links welcome) that you would share with Richard Armitage as he is about to be “launched” onto the world film making stage.
Cheers! Grati ;->
P.S. Another suggestion is: Break in your new dress shoes before you walk the red carpet, you’ll be more comfortable.
