2. Richard Armitage
Richard Armitage had a successful television career before landing the role of Thorin in The Hobbit trilogy. It had been heavily rumored that he would be the next James Bond, but, unfortunately, was denied by him. Nonetheless, fans still love the idea especially since they have seen him play an agent in BBC’s Spooks. His loud, commanding voice would be perfect to deliver those iconic lines. However, at 44 years old, it’s questionable whether he could continue the franchise for over a decade. Most of the Bonds started in their late 30’s (Sean Connery was the youngest at 32), so Armitage might be too old to keep up with multiple films. Regardless, he would be one of the most realistic picks.

Richard Armitage:Brain on Fire Music via RA co-star Chloe Moretz + Berlin Station Mention in LA Screenings Article(see link) + Brain On Fire Listed Among 5 Films Not to Miss,2016 + Berlin Station Will Have a Virtual Reality Website(see news article below)

Excerpt from below article:

- Brain on Fire
Brain on Fire is a joint film project between Ireland, Canada, and the United States, which is based on Susannah Cahalan's memoir Brain on Fire: My Month of Madness.
Brain on Fire sees Gerard Barrett in the director's chair for what is the third feature film of his career; following on from Pilgrim Hill and Grassland. As well as being in the director's chair, Barrett has adapted Cahalan's memoir into a screenplay.
Chloë Grace Moretz is set to take on the role of Susannah Cahalan in the film and is joined on the cast list by Richard Armitage, Carrie-Anne Moss, Thomas Mann, and Tyler Perry.
Brain on Fire follows Cahalan (Moretz), a rising journalist at the New York Post who mysteriously starts having seizures and hearing voices. As weeks go by and Susannah rapidly descends into insanity, she moves inexplicably from violence to catatonia.
Following a series of outbursts, misdiagnoses and a prolonged hospital stay, a lucky last-minute intervention by one doctor finally gives her a diagnosis and hope to rebuild her life.
Brain on Fire is expected to be released later this year but no official UK release date has yet been announced. We are going to be treated to a series of biopic movies this year bur Brain on Fire is one that you really need to watch out for if you are a fan of this genre.Read more:

VR Adds Thrills to EPIX’s ‘Berlin Station’

Digital initiative will let fans explore spy drama’s world5/16/2016 08:00:00 AM Eastern
The spy thriller, set to premiere in October, will be supported by an interactive digital initiative that will provide users with a virtual-reality tour of the German capital that also features interactive clues that will help enhance the series’ storyline, according to Nora Ryan, executive vice president and chief of staff for EPIX.
The Paramount Television-produced, 10-episode Berlin Station, executive produced by Michaël Roskam (Bullhead) and Eric Roth (The Insider), follows a CIA agent who gets immersed in a conspiracy after going to Berlin to uncover the source of a leak who has supplied top secret information to infamous whistleblower.
The Berlin Station online site — accessible via all mobile devices on all platforms — will launch this summer and will feature several two-to-five minute videos that allow viewers to take a 360-degree look at points around the city, network executives said.
Among the video scenes is a virtual car chase that allows users to view a number of Berlin landmarks while picking up clues to the evolving storyline, according to Keary Hanan, EPIX senior vice president of digital programming & production.
Within the videos will be red, interactive “hot spots” that will reveal information about the series storyline or characters, according to Shane Lindley, EPIX’s senior director of digital programming & product.
The VR site is part of the Berlin Station marketing and promotional campaign launching this summer, and the site’s content will evolve and deepen as the series gets closer to launch.
“It gives us the opportunity to build engagement from the beginning,” Hanan said. If we were just driving our marketing message to just watch the series, there wouldn’t be this fun experience. We’re hoping to grab people early and get them engaged and then keep them with us throughout the story.”
Once the series launches, EPIX will add new videos with the premiere of each episode that will expand the show’s story lines beyond what’s seen on screen. Fans will be able to participate in a uniquely immersive experience as the spy thriller unfolds, Ryan said.
EPIX said it is the first network to integrate an overlay into virtual reality experience. “Throughout the series we will look to increase engagement and sharing experience,” Lindley said. “Ultimately we want to create that social collateral in which you know something about the show that no one else does.”
Ryan said the VR content will be available free to all users across all Internet-connected devices in order to introduce a younger, digitally engaged audience to the network’s new original series.
“It’s nonlinear storytelling that we think will be very interesting for viewers,” she said.

Evidence above and below that the handsome male gene has flourished in No England. Never heard this DH Lawrence quote before - extremely wise man! BTW, not being totally gracious with the "handsome" assessment. My father's ancestors emigrated from that area to the USA in 1870. Their homestead was just a few miles from Eastwood, Nottinghamshire, where DH Lawrence was born.
