Richard Armitage:April TV Showers + New Role--Serial Killer in Hannibal(see link) + Revists to Dibley(see Vicar news) & Milton(because we all miss JT)

In April the skies will open and much anticipated new plus returning TV series will tumble out.  Apr 4, Outlander; Apr 5 new series Wolf Hall and Apr 12, Game of Thrones new season begins. Here's a taste of Wolf Hall:
New role in Hannibal Series: Francis Dolarhyde(aka The Tooth Fairy:) really??
"hulking Dolarhyde is a serial killer with a penchant for slaughtering entire households."  Good to know he'll play a monk before or after -- helps to soften the macabre...eeeeek!! Doubtful I'll be reading the book.  News headlines are horrifying enough for me.

6. Thorin’s Personal Journey(see link below)

The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies truly is Richard Armitage’s film. In the book, Thorin’s madness and fall from grace make for a tragic conclusion to the story. In this film Thorin likewise goes through that huge personal – and destructive – journey. From a king consumed by dragon sickness, to his rallying of the dwarves at the gates of Erebor and his final battle with Azog, this is the film that proves why Armitage was chosen for the role.
If Bard is the Aragron of this film, then Thorin is Boromir – a man consumed by the duty and power who tries to do the right thing and ultimately falls. His scenes with Bilbo and Dwalin convey the madness the mountain has on him, but Armitage delivers it in a way that makes you feel sympathy for him despite the foolish decision he makes. His final scene, dying before Bilbo, humbly begging for forgiveness, is beautifully acted and brings the relationship full circle.
Before this film, none of the dwarves had yet matched the wonder of John Rhys-Davies’s Gimli, but in The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies, Richard Armitage took the crown.http://whatculture.com/film/the-hobbit-the-battle-of-the-five-armies-10-reasons-its-a-great-adaptation.php/6
Recent NEWS that Gerry, the Vicar of Dibley, will become Bishop of Dibley. Will her hubby, Harry Kennedy (played by Richard Armitage) join her?

While I locate photo of Harry & Gerry together, here are a couple of another RA co-star, Sarah Wayne Callies, 2014's Into The Storm:
