Richard Armitage:All Things Including 3 new roles:Teacher Gary Into The Storm + John Proctor in The Crucible & Chop in new film Urban and the Shed Crew

Above: John's brother, Guy Proctor..
The Crucible Corner - Trivia: Though based on historical events, Arthur Miller altered some events to more strongly parallel his own life experience. In particular, Abigail Williams was only 12. Miller made her older so that she could have had a sexual relationship with John Proctor. This paralleled Miller's own adulterous relationship with Marilyn Monroe.
Daniel Day-Lewis met his wife Rebecca Miller, daughter of Arthur Miller, while filming The Crucible.Kate Winslet was considered for the role of Abigail Williams.
Did he borrow John Standring's knit hat for a reason?  Might he be getting ready to form a new band - Chop and the Shed Crew! Coming soon to a shed near you!
[UPDATE:Well wisher in upstate NY offered her extra large shed for band's premiere concert - Get your tickets now!!] ;D

                               New series 'Outlander' coming this Summer:

Answering reporters questions on WonderCon red carpet..
Modern Crucible - Today's Medieval, Dogmatic Believers: Beware of today's medieval moralists who preach climate change, and insult those who are not convinced. The holier than thouers on this topic arrogantly refuse to intelligently debate the subject. They would far rather ridicule those who actually find them to be the narrow minded, dogmatic believers - reminiscent of late 17th century Puritans: http://www.steynonline.com/6279/medieval-moralists 

When you read the following John Proctor line in The Crucible, did any other chaRActer's words echo in your ear?
                                                  This is what I heard...

Richard Armitage:Official Announcement RA Stars in The Crucible(see link) + New Interview(see link) + Game of Thrones Purple Wedding Reviews + Latest EW Mag--Into The Storm is Listed with 105 Summer Films + Why is #IntoTheStorm Already #51 at IMDb? Perhaps John Proctor News?(or is that theory all wet;) get it;D

NEWS:It's Official - Richard Armitage will star in The Crucible at the Old Vic:
In this interview, RA says he wishes he had kept Thorin's boots. What might he do with them?
Last night's purple wedding, in ep 2 of GoT4, made many people very happy. Reviews, etc:
Game of Thrones Joffrey wedding Q&As! Martin Gleeson Showrunners
Following is author Geo Martin's reply when he was asked to comment on Jack Gleeson's performance(total of 32 eps) as King Joffrey in Game of Thrones. That king is dead, but the ultimate ruler of Westeros is yet to be determined. Reporter asked:..any thoughts about how Jack played Joffrey now that this is his swan song?
Martin: I think Jack was sensational. I met Jack during the filming of the pilot many years ago now, and he’s like the nicest guy you’d ever want to meet. He’s really bright and a fiercely intelligent young man going to Trinity College in Dublin. I don’t know if you’ve seen his speech at the Oxford Union, it’s pretty amazing about celebrity culture. He’s very perceptive and he played this loathsome character and somehow made him more loathsome. He created someone that everybody hates, and loves to hate, and that’s a considerable feat of acting. I feel a little guilty that he’s quitting acting now. I hope that playing Joffrey didn’t help make him want to retire from the profession because he does have quite a gift for it and could have a major career as an actor."
Found perfect actor to play the Rev Hale role in The Crucible:)
The continuum of history: Earliest settlers to the Massachusetts Bay Colony had a precedent for their witchcraft phobia, when they arrived from Europe. There were witchburnings all over that continent for centuries:

Tweet by one of the young actors in Into The Storm:

Can we just stop and acknowledge for a second that is currently number 51 on IMDB's movie meter?
If so, thank you to the latest John about to be added to RA's body of work. The Massachusetts Bay farmer also channels Thorin at one point in The Crucible when he declares "There might also be a dragon with 5 legs in my house..."
