I think what bothers me the most about the Hobbit movies is that, in their bloody-minded insistence on facilely equating dwarvishness with rough, stereotypically masculine interests and pursuits and elvishness with delicate, stereotypically feminine interests and pursuits, they deprive us of seeing Richard Armitage in full Thorin Oakenshield getup playing the harp.
Richard Armitage Joins Julie Delpy’s ‘My Zoe’ — Berlin
Armitage, who’s renowned for playing Thorin Oakenshield in Peter Jackson’s Hobbit trilogy, will play the role of James, the ex-husband of Delpy’s character Isabelle. Their toxic marriage may be over but they are still in contact with each other as they co-parent their daughter Zoe. But when tragedy strikes this fractured family, Isabelle takes matters into her own hands.
honestly richard armitage could be cast to play a tree in a three second clip and in the behind the scenes dvd he’d spend at least 10 minutes explaining how he read up on botany and visited five national parks to prepare for the role. he also probably traced the tree’s lineage 200 years back and decided the wind made its leaves rustle in a melancholy sort of way because the tree’s father died in the war.

I’m surprised that this wasn’t posted on Tumblr, where not only has a strong AC Fandom presence, but a awesome love for both Connor and Shay. There were many who asked questions such as
“Where was Shay during the events of AC3?”
“What is the meaning behind Connor’s wife leaving him?”
