What makes a man sexy? Handsomeness? Longish hair which you can run you fingers through? Clothes–or lack thereof? Bearing and deportment? Talent/achievement? Demeanor? Compassion toward others? Purpose driven? Humility? Sense of humor and fun? All of that–and more.
And if he has a sexy scruffy side to him such as Richard Armitage does in reel and real life? Then he is all the more delicious!
And the exquisitely talented British actor Richard Armitage looks like he will shine portraying Social Worker Chop in the latest images from Director Candida Brady for the soon to be released film Urban and the Shed Crew. Richard Armitage as Chop and Fraser Kelly as Urban look to portray their respective characters in powerful performances.
- Isabelle W. (Thanks!) shared this Richard Armitage as Chop in Urban and the Shed Crew portrait (below). Scruffily handsome guy with goofy smile wins my heart every time. Sighhh! Of course, the plaid is a nice touch. Plaid seems rather egalitarian to me. And if it is a warm flannel? All the better
Below is Richard Armitage at Waterstones Piccadilly for his 2013 Desolation of Smaug press (not scruffy, but a somewhat humorous smiling hard pose taken out of context). He is probably listening politely to someone–as is his wont. Lovely neckage there. Sighhh! This Hugo boss sweater/jumper Mr. Armitage is wearing fits him perfectly! The scruffy in this picture might be construed as his stubble. Though I love love love his stubble! Sighhhh!
And I do prefer a scruffy Richard Armitage when he is smoulderingly scruffy as a dog lover (Thanks to jollytr tumblr!) below:
I just had an inkling that Mr. Armitage is more of a dog person. And there is a whole post we could get into on what breed of dog he might prefer. Ha!
As opposed to disheveled slouching scruffy (below)–but I do love the lack of buttoning up here–with a hint of sparse chest hair. *wink* Thanks to Velvet’s 2014 tweet of a clearly relaxed Richard Armitage. But on second thought, I’m thighingggg! Darn that water bottle! Purrrr!
- Teresa A edit (Thanks!) shared this UATSC Scene still of Richard Armitage as Chop from Director Candida Brady (below). I love chop! Here, he looks like a combo between modernized Guy sexiness–hair & beard & pout–and John Thornton’s honorable gentleman because Chop saves Urban. Sighhhh!
The hair follicles don’t lie. Chop’s full hair salon blow out look is nearly a a hair match to Richard Armitage as Sir Guy below (Thanks to RANet!).
But Chop’s poignantly sad facial expression is more like Richard Armitage when he portrayed John Thornton in North & South below (Thanks RANet!):
- But I digress. Back to UATSC and another Candida Brady offering of Richard Armitage as Chop below. A scruffy casual Richard Armitage looking sanguine is sexy? Oh yes! *wink*

And a special thanks for Isabelle W’s and Teresa A’s RA as Chop picture inspirations!
P.S. I can’t wait for the film Urban and the Shed Crew to be released in the U.S! And if the film plays in Chicago? I’m there in a heartbeat!
Below is the latest UATSC trailer shared by Director Candida Brady:
