Dream casting for Robert Ludlum’s spy novel adaptation

It’s not a straight action/adventure but more of a romance spy thriller w/ a love story being integral to the plot.

The story’s protagonist, Michael Havelock, a veteran CIA operative is prompted to return from retirement after learning that the woman he fell in love with and thought to be dead is actually alive. While on this search for his lover, he got involved in some political conspiracies, assassinations, shoot-outs and everything you’d expect from a spy novel.

I’d love to see Richard get a shot at this role, with someone like Rachel Weisz as his love interest. Chinese director Zhang Yimou's is reportedly in talks to adapt the film which will mark his Hollywood debut. His films are always beautifully-shot, combining action, drama and of course, romance.

Seems that I have a very distinct type in actors. My classic crush Gregory Peck’s also have theatrical background, though not musical theater like Richard. But Greg did take dancing lesson from the renowned dance maestro Martha Graham as part of his acting training. Plus they share similar characteristics:

impossibly beautiful
breathtaking eyes
tall (over 6’2”)
lanky with dark, wavy hair
voracious reader
have slender but masculine hands
massively talented
loves acting for the craft
And my favorite part of all… both seem genuinely humble and not the playboy type despite their ridiculous good looks ♥

Excerpt from my Richard Armitage Birthday Tribute – Ten favorite moments with John Thornton

#1The first time I beheld Mr. Thornton from a distance… with cottons flying about in the air like snow. It’s also the first time North & South heroine Margaret sees him after being informed by the mill workers where to find him. I’d imagine she’d have this thought in her head the moment she spots him… “THAT’s Mr. Thornton? I thought he’d be old and balding, but he most certainly is neither.” I might order Gaskell’s novel in my Kindle to read her poetic words of that first encounter.

Dayum, Richard dresses well. For a shy man, he sure likes his jeans super tight [not that I’m complaining!] LOVE that vintage briefcase, too. If I were to meet him that day, I’d have asked him where he got it so I can get one for my hubby [yeah right, AS IF I’d notice the bag next to THAT jeans] :P

 New Captain America: The Winter Soldier Stills - 1/?

Chris Evans’ so perfect as Captain America. Just rewatched the first film and loved it. I’m still kicking myself that I didn’t say anything to him when I met him at Comic-con. I won the raffle to get an autograph from him. In case you’re wondering, he’s just as good looking in person, but VERY pale. I was like, ‘boy you need a tan!’
But he was friendly and courteous. In fact, he said ‘how’re you doing?’ as I approached him on the stage, but all I said back was ‘good. how’re you?’ Oh geez! Wish I had asked to take a picture with him, too.
