New John Thornton Photo Surfaces(thx to RAnet) + Richard Armitage Central Moderator Meets RA - See Link to Her Remarks

Thanks to for new JT photo..
Smoke and Mirrors..strip away the masks and many are more attractive.  Granted it's an improvement for others:
There are so many creatvie RA fans.  Just when you think you've seen everything possible, one finds a way to make the John Porter dream sequence in Strike Back even more memorable. The irony of this scene is the fact Porter's dream was rudely interrupted.  Moments after these images flashed before our eyes, the SAS-trained agent found it necessary to *put some manners* on perverts:

As you can see, there was plenty of sunshine on this particular day in Michigan.  In fact, the fan explains in her remarks that RA said the extremely sunny days are even causing filming problems for the Black Sky production.

He did sound impressed by AVATAR,The Movie at Hobbit press conf..Therefore:

NEWS - Breakout Stars Fall 2012,0,6085417.story
Relevant excerpt:

How He'll Spend the Fall: Treasure hunting with Bilbo Baggins in Peter Jackson's "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey."

Upcoming: Two more sequels to "The Hobbit" and an untitled tornado thriller from New Line Cinema.

Why He's Ready to Break Through: Another well-known name in England hoping for his U.S. breakthrough, the dashing British actor has starred in several hit BBC America series, including "Robin Hood" (he played the evil Guy of Gisborne) and "MI-5."

His portrayal as dwarf leader Thorin Oakenshield in the upcoming trilogy could provide Armitage's career with the kind of boost enjoyed by "The Lord of the Rings" star Viggo Mortensen - another underappreciated supporting actor who became a major player thanks to his work on the J.R.R. Tolkien-inspired films.

Following photo hasbeen tweeted by the producer of the new tornado film.  Believe we can see RA at left of the screen below.

You don't have to take cover from this twister. In fact, it's a welcome addition to Oakland Township — and all of Michigan.
A movie known only as "Untitled Tornado Project" has begun filming in the state. This week, a cast and crew of about 300 are on location at a school off the rural Lake George Road in Oakland Township.
The scene is surreal: a mangled school bus sits upside down on a hill in front of Oakview Middle School, part of the Lake Orion school district. All around, trees and debris are scattered, evidence of a natural disaster. Preparing for the next scene, crew members take sledgehammers to a car they need to appear destroyed and left in the tornado's path.
Here's the movie synopsis, according to publicist Tammy Sandler:
"In the span of a single day, the town of Silverton is ravaged by an unprecedented onslaught of tornadoes. The entire town is at the mercy of the erratic and deadly cyclones, even as storm trackers predict the worst is yet to come. Most people seek shelter, while others run towards the vortex, testing how far a storm chaser will go for that once-in-a-lifetime shot."
Oakview has been transformed into Silverton High School for the scene. Behind the school, a giant fan and a crane that pours rain onto the set help with the special effects. Sandler said about 200 students are cast as extras for this part of the movie.  
The Michigan location is the result of a reinvestment in the film industry by Michigan leaders. After pulling back last year on tax incentives for movie companies, the state recently put together a new film tax incentive plan for the coming years. 
Stars of the tornado project include:
  • Richard Armitage (“Captain America: The First Avenger,” upcoming “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey”)
  • Sarah Wayne Callies (TV’s “The Walking Dead”)
  • Matt Walsh (“Ted”)
  • Nathan Kress (TV’s “iCarly”)
  • Arlen Escarpeta (“Final Destination 5”)
  • Jon Reep (“Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay”)
  • Jeremy Sumpter (“Soul Surfer,” TV’s “Friday Night Lights”)
The film is produced by New Line Cinema and will be distributed by Warner Bros. Steven Quale is directing the film from a screenplay by John Swetnam. 
Rumors have circulated that the movie is a part of the popular "Twister" movie series; Sandler said those rumors are not true.
The movie will on location at Oakview through Thursday. The entire movie will be shot in Michigan over the next several weeks.
There's no public access to the set, though Lake George Road has been busy with curious onlookers driving slowly by. Sandler said anyone who would like to try to be an extra can send their name, phone number and photo to
