I don’t really know why I look at the blurbs that are written about RA for the projects he’s involved in. After all I have
familiarised myself with obsessed over his career for a number of years now. Whether it is the press kit for BS or the Who’s Who for LLL, I guess I peek in, because I wonder against all odds whether there is a new snippet of career facts in there.
But no, big surprise, RA can’t change the past. No previously-unheard-of projects come to light. But it seems he lives firmly in the past: Both CV blurbs cited above appear to be rooted in a time-warp, circa late 2015…
Hm. Who writes these things? They look very much alike, although the BS blurb is more up-to-date than LLL‘s. I suppose, these little details are only picked up by
obsessive nutcases people familiar with the Armitage oeuvre. And maybe all it does, is look a little bit sloppy. Or maybe it’s all part of the plan: BS is taking the Daniel Miller tactics of misinformation method-like to the CV of its leading actor, confusing the audience with inconsistencies in the star’s resume. Maybe even Richard Armitage is not all that is seen??? And LLL is bolstering the historic dimensions of the play by emphasising the mid-2010s in order to drive home the Baby Boomer v Gen X conflict? Cunning plans!!!
Unless Richard needs rescuing from the time warp. 😱 Do we have to call the Doctor in? I have already dispatched Thorin to get help. Mission: Back to the Future!
