  2. Good man.

  3. servetus

    Thanks!! So lovely!!! Grey suit and blue oxford!!!!

    • He looks really good in these clothes!!!

    • kathryngaul

      Oh, but that shirt could be tighter! I like it when he wears those snug shirts with the straining button-holes!!! LOL

      • Kathryn, maybe you should take that up with the costume department! ๐Ÿ˜‰

        • Well, you know, teachers have to be somewhat conservative in attire . . . the school board might have feared too many members of the student body being too obsessed with the teacher’s body. ๐Ÿ˜‰

          • I don’t think the clothes would have deterred my lusting one bit.

            I’ve told a couple of friends that there are two possible paths I would have gone down had he been my teacher:
            1. I would have failed his class because I was too busy ogling him
            2. I would have been the model student because I wanted to please him so badly!

            • servetus

              I was desperately hopelessly in love with my HS choir teacher (awkward because he was the husband of my HS piano teacher …) and it was not really about the clothes at all. He always wore basically the same thing to school (same thing all the male teachers wore) — dress shirt (usu white, blue, or pale color), dress slacks (dark color, either knit trousers or Dockers style natural fiber), dark socks, loafers. It was about the energy. He was about 30 and had this amazing charisma.

              • That was awkward, Serv. But I totally see where you are coming from. The attraction was about the man himself, not how he was packaged.

                • servetus

                  and yeah, I was his total *slave*. I would have done anything for him. I’m sure he knew but he has never said anything (am still friends with his wife, and see them a few times a year).

                  • Very classy of him to never let on that he knew! That’s really nice that you are still in contact with them and get to catch up every once in a while.

  4. servetus

    He must be SO happy in that costume. Such a relief from the all the Thorin prosthetics.

    • I’m sure it must be so nice to throw on some clothes and only have to sit in makeup for a few minutes.

  5. LOL! I was thinking, “Oooh, Servetus will like that outfit!” ๐Ÿ˜‰ and I agree, as much as he seemed to love playing Thorin, it must be a relief to have to go to so little trouble to appear before the cameras each day.

    • This looks like the same outfit he was wearing that that one woman (sorry don’t remember who she is) tweeted. He doesn’t look quite as disheveled here though. Hmm…goes to look at said pic again!

    • servetus

      Servetus does like that outfit ๐Ÿ™‚

      This is a still from a set, so presumably he’s also been running around in it, etc. It’s a costume partially in use — not a red carpet appearance, so needs to be evaluated on that basis, I would suggest ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Isn’t there a high school graduation in the film? Here’s my theory…he’s in the suit for the graduation, then the tornadoes hit and in the chaos his suit gets all rumpled up. I like put together Armitage and disheveled Armitage…frankly I can’t think of a version of Armitage I don’t care for! ๐Ÿ˜‰

        • servetus

          yes. And he’s supposed to be a US schoolteacher. Unlikely to have access to or the taste for those nipped in at the waist British dress shirts that Lucas North was always wearing.

  6. Love it! Thanks for the link! Here is what I replied to Mr. Garner on Twitter:

    Great picture of Mr. Armitage! 10Q! And this portrait, it is a “look”–physically, facially–that evokes his new role uniquely.

  7. gracie

    Thank you for this. Another “character’ I am going to fall in love with, i just know it. That is probably the same outfit he had on with the fan. Me likey.

    • Yes, I think I’ll probably love this chaRActer too! It doesn’t hurt that I love tornado movies. I don’t know why, they come way too close to where I live, but I can’t seem to help myself. ๐Ÿ™‚

      • I know where you live, Jas, and tornadoes DEFINITELY come way too close to where you are. And way too close to where I am, too! I give thanks that we are not in the path that several tornadoes have taken over the years. Some places down here have been hit multiple times. As for the character, hey, he’s a teacher and I love teachers, he’s playing a dad looking for his son in the aftermath of this terrible storm, which gets to me, and–it’s RICHARD ARMITAGE, for cryin’ out loud. What’s NOT to love??

        • They do come way too close, Angie. We still have friends rebuilding from that awful day last year (and one who had to fix his rebuild from another tornado this year)! I agree about the character. Teachers are near and dear to my heart, then there is that whole protective dad thing…I have no idea how we could NOT love this character.

  8. How very kind of Todd Garner to share this pic with us fangurlz! You’ve got to love a guy who keeps his promises!

  9. kathryngaul

    I was only kidding – you realize that, don’t you? I love him in (or out of) anything ๐Ÿ™‚

    Did you notice those ladies on Twitter saying he looked too clean-shaven???? What did they expect a teacher to look like I wonder – Thorin, Guy, Lucas? LOL

    • Yeah, I know–I admit I thought the same thing, “himmm, shirt’s looser than usual” LOL And yeah, once again, he’s a high school teacher, he is expected to be somewhat conservative in appearance–and that would apply to stubble, too. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      • I knew you were kidding! That’s why I used the winking emoticon. ๐Ÿ™‚

        Have on gone on record yet and said that I’m not a huge fan of the clean shaven look on him, generally speaking? While I love the beard, I understand why others don’t. But the stubble…it somehow accentuates all of the lines of his jaw that I admire so much.

        That being said, he still looks really good in this new photo.

        • Oh, hey, I love the stubble. Very masculine. But I do understand why they didn’t opt to go with it here. Also you have to say it’s a good contrast with his look as Thorin!

      • Mezz

        I’m sure the stubble will make an appearance after a few days of looking for his son in the tornado aftermath!

        • That’s my thought too, Mezz! I mean, it isn’t as if a man out searching for his kids will have time to stop and shave.

          • That’s what I am thinking. Heck, a lot of times after a storm like this you didn’t even have electricity, no hot water to shave even if you have the time. And he’s going to be focused on finding his son. I suspect we will see some stubble before all is said and done.

  10. Mezz

    What a way to start my day…and it solves the mystery of the grey suit! *sigh* I can’t stop looking at him. Many, many thanks from this non-tweep. I told Agzy I would give Twitter another try, so this gives me added incentive! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • servetus

      the key is following only people you “know.” Don’t follow anyone who follows you, and the second you see a spam hit “block.”

      • I keep getting followers that have, like, a thousand people they follow/following them,and I just ignore them, frankly. Looks like people trying to sell something. I have no interest in racking up X number of followers. Only people I know . . . or celebs I am interested in who have something interesting to say (Stephen Fry, for example).

    • I’m so glad you got to see it here since you aren’t on Twitter! If you give Twitter another try I agree with Serv, you don’t have to follow every person who follows you. Also, get a Twitter client like Tweetdeck, it makes all the difference.

      • servetus

        agree strongly there, too. I use hootsuite. It organizes the streams so you can concentrate on what you want to see at any given point.

  11. Mezz

    Thanks serv. I knew the first rule. The second one I didn’t, but am I correct in assuming it’s because it casts the net so much wider?

    • Mezz, I don’t know how Hootsuite works. But, with Tweetdeck things are arranged in columns, so you can pick what shows up. I have a column for everyone I follow, for tweets that mention me, for #RichardArmitage. The RA one makes it so I see all the tweets with that hashtag, it makes it so much easier to keep up with everything.

      • servetus

        yeah, perhaps the best way to put is that the client allows you to organize what twitter sends you in a way that makes it easier to process quickly. That means you can do more with twitter, so yeah, cast the net more widely. In point of fact, however, I only use Twitter for #richardarmitage stuff. I try to keep everything else out of it.

    • servetus

      my initial problem with twitter (which has been updated in the interval) was that I felt like you had to be watching it on the web all the time. Twitter itself only sent me about 20% of the messages it was getting for me. But when I watched Twitter on the web, everything was all together — my tweets, other people’s tweets, retweets, and so on. With hootsuite, first of all, its email push is *much* better. I would say I get 90% of stuff that concerns me. Next, I have four separate streams — an aggregation of all the tweets of people I follow, a column of tweets in which I am mentioned (and to which I will want to react — this is what makes Twitter fun, easy real time conversations), my direct messages (which weren’t even visible on the same screen in twitter — you had to go to a separate screen), and the tweets I make on my own. I think it’s possible to add even more columns. Hootsuite also tracks my FB account simultneously, which is handy because Servetus has a different account than the one I use on a day to day to basis, and thus I can be logged into my real one while watching my FB one, i.e., without having to switch. I admit that I didn’t compare different clients — I picked one based on something that Frenz said. There may be better options in the meantime.

  12. Teuchter

    A million thanks from another “non- tweeter” for sharing this! I just found it among my 100 + emails that were waiting for me when I arrived home today and literally gasped when I saw the picture! May I say with the suit and less close-fitting shirt he LOOKS like a teacher! **sigh** Now I’m desperate to see this movie too! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • You are most welcome, Teuchter! We fans gotta stick together and make sure everyone has a chance to see the new goodies! ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. Joanna

    Great picture Jasrangoon! Thanks!:)
    If I may complain a little…he is too fully clothed. Will it be the general tendency for now and for ever?.:(

    • servetus

      you may complain, Joanna. And we may complain with you! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • You go right ahead and complain, Joanna! I wouldn’t mind if the tornado tore that shirt and jacket right off his back! ๐Ÿ˜‰

      • servetus

        there are stories like that from the Dakota Territories in the 19th c. Storms that left people literally naked after they passed through.

      • What, not the pants, too? Then we could see if this character is a boxer or briefs man. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Seriously, searching after a tornado is tough work so I am figuring he will shed the jacket and very likely roll up the sleeves so we may at least get those fetching bare forearms. Love those arm hairs. . . *sigh*

        • servetus

          and look closely at how dirty that shirt is. He’ll have to take it off sooner or later to get it and himself clean.

        • I was trying not to be greedy! But you know, if the pants happen to get removed by the tornado, I’ll won’t even contemplate complaining!

  14. Mezz

    Thanks girls, for the information on tweetdeck and hootsuite. I’ll look into those options further, probably something I should have done in the first place. Oh well, nothing like learning something new the hard way!

  15. Joanna

    Servetus!:D..really?…really? it true story?…you know that story from Dakota?;)
    Quoting Geraldine” Lord,I don’t do it very often, but in case that any of this ‘on the knees’ stuff works, please…please!. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • servetus

      There was a lot of extreme weather in the Dakota territories in the 1880s, and yes, a lot of strange stories reported with regard to tornado (then usually called cyclones) behavior, including a child that was picked up by a funnel cloud and returned to his family, naked, or tornadoes that picked up horses and returned only their harnesses, that kind of stuff. If you’ve ever seen one of these storms, what they do is really incredibly unpredictable. They can demolish a house and leave all the trees around it intact, for example.

      • Having seen the aftermath of tornadoes, I defiinitely believe clothes could completely be ripped off. I have seen homes where all the exterior walls were gone–and yet dishes in a china cabinet were untouched. Bicycles in trees. A piece of straw driven into the trunk of a tree. Really weird stuff and it happens soooooo quickly.

        A tornado came right down the street where the School for the Blind was located and I remember seeing stuff flying by through the windows while crouching in the front hall but having absolutely no earthly idea what it was.

        Fortunately the old Victorian where I lived in an upstairs apartment just down the street was unscathed, but a main transformer was knocked out and I had no electricity for several days. Many huge old trees were uprighted and sidewalks buckled by the twister and some homes did have extensive damage. Part of the roof of the School for the Deaf was ripped off. But all things considered, it could have been a lot worse. As I recall, no deaths or serious injuries.

        When I saw a school was involved in the plot of this movie, I could not help but remember when a tornado struck a high school to the south of us a few years ago. The school was completely demolished and several students and teachers were killed when a wall collapsed on them. It was such a tragic time.

      • Joanna

        This is very interesting and horrible at the same time, Servetus. We had several tornadoes in this year , which are very unique in my country, it seems that climate is really changing.

  16. Joanna

    Oh Fedora!..this is terrible!….I think I should be happy that I live in this rather cold country.

    • Our weather has gotten crazier over the years, too. We used to be far enough inland that we never had to worry about real danger from hurricanes–just lots of rain. However, that is no longer true.

      So now having lived in various parts of the country, I have been through blizzards, ice storms, massive hail storms, hurricanes and tornadoes.

      In some ways the tornadoes are the worst because they can happen so quickly that you don’t necessarily have time to prepare and the devastation can be awful. That tornado hit the school where I worked less than three minutes after I got a call to go to the main building.
