Just happened to see this news blurb about Gary Oldman's Best Actor win at recent Oscars. I have not watched that ceremony for past few years, now that the majority of US actors/tresses have lost complete touch with movie viewers. Apparently Mr Oldman was very gracious to Americans in his remarks, as well as thanking his 98 yr old mother. How absolutely wonderful that she could enjoy his big day. In fact, her son said "put the kettle on, I'm bringing Oscar home" :D
~~~~~~ Richard mention in a Castlevania 2 article: "The Trevor of the show is weary, a little rusty, and not necessarily eager to answer the hero’s call to action. He’s also surprisingly funny, with a dry wit that helps keep things light amidst the gore. Shankar credits writer Warren Ellis’s trademark gallows humor and Richard Armitage’s decidedly not-mopey voice acting with helping make the difficult character likable."
Excerpt: EPIX original scripted series slate includes Get Shorty, starring Chris O’Dowd and Ray Romano, renewed for its second season; Berlin Station, starring Richard Armitage, Ashley Judd and Richard Jenkins, renewed for its third season; and The Truth About Harry Quebert, starring Patrick Dempsey, currently in post-production.

Above is a clip from TNT's fascinating series 'The Alienist' - Breathtaking scenes transport viewers back in time to turn of the century NYC. Murdahs are solved by a scientist, criminal sketch artist and the first woman to work in the New York Police Dept. The plot includes President Theodore Roosevelt(a Republican politician) in his early career as the NY Commissioner of Police. Recommend the series for anyone who enjoys a well-done period piece plus an edge of seat detective drama. It does get gory which usually finds me tuning out after the first episode. Not this time! The writing, acting, sets and cinematography are all so well done it's even worth suffering through the gruesome murdah;) scenes.
This exciting film opened on Friday. It's was a RL event - the main characters are portrayed by the actual men who thwarted the insane terrorist on The 15:17 to Paris. When the men expressed their hesitation to play themselves to director Eastwood, Clint told them "you do exactly what you did that day and I'll fill in the rest."
Proving yet again that life requires different strokes for different folks--our fav actor gets it. Female humans can enjoy Shakespeare and Lauren Blakely without feeling as though they are narrow-minded, inexperienced maidens or lust-filled tramps. There is more than enough time in life to enjoy all forms of "literature" and especially relish when a velvet throated male is willing to provide a wide variety of choices:
@LaurenBlakely3Hey Lauren. On my 2 listen.
Just a question for you...how did you get @RCArmitage to play Griffin? It’s not the usual type of book I ever thought he’d do. With the exception of the G Heyer’s he’s read, most of his books are quite serious
