Vote for Richard!

Uh-oh... not that darn
Uncle Gizzy poster again!


Calling all Armitage admirers...
My blogging buddy Dezmond at
Hollywood Spy is holding a
"Favorite TV Hunks" poll on his site.  I told him if he listed Richard as a contender, the RA fans would come flooding in to vote for our man.  So cast your vote for RA!  You can vote multiple times (at least daily, I believe) so be sure to vote as much as possible because
a) Richard is the best TV hunk by far, right?  

b) I want to prove to Dez that RA fans are the most loyal bunch out
there and c) not to be disrespectful to the other candidates,
but we need to blow them out of the water!!!

not sure if this picture you posted would scare them enough to vote :PPP

Voted! So far RA is on top! Yay! Is that blog US based? I wonder if the readers even know who RA is? But great way to get him out there (here). Ohh and I love the pic he used too!

sandra said...

Speaking of voting....you can also vote for RA, Strike Back and Spooks for TV Choice awards, there's a link from RichardArmitageNet.com

RE: the poster

Okay, okay, I'm voting! I'm doing it now.


LOL!!! That poster still cracks me up.

bZirk said...

I almost forgot! How could I forget this!!! Someone just brought me the mail, and guess what was in it?!! Yep, my personal SFR! Thanks, Natalie. Love the surprise. :D

Pssst. Now I've got to figure out where to put SFR so I can look at him often and not be ribbed.

Voted for our man...not really a tough choice - those other boys don't have a hope!!!
Will keep voting as much as I can!

Interesting group..RA is still in the lead: 39 votes/79%
I wonder Nat how did RA land in that group?

RA is not even listed in the actors on my provider (DirectTV) that will be my gauge for when he makes it big...

Great post to show the power of the fandom!!!

@bZirk: looking forward to your adventures w/ SFR :)
PS:Let yourself go, don't hold back, live up to your name!
Ok enough I'm cracking myself up LOL

bZirk said...

Oh believe me I'm already doing that. MUHAHAHAHA.

But thanks for the encouragement since I might get cold feet.

Just voted, and our man is kicking butt! he has an overwhelming majority with the next guy having 7 votes. Oh ladies! I think we can ensure that our man wins. But I must ask, like iz4spunk, how on earth did RA land in that group of actors?

Plus, I may be in the minority here, but I don't think that pic of RA does him justice at all. I think it's an older pic. I'm convinced if we had a nice pic of him as our favorite bad guy Guy, in all his black leather glory, *thud*, even Americans who never even heard of him would vote for him. But as it is, our little dedicated group is on a serious mission here, and I have every confidence that this "A-team" will make sure Mr.A gets the recognition he deserves, hee! hee!

Voted. That poster is hi-larious.

Hi Nat,

Thanks for the heads up on this. I've done my delightful duty and will continue to do so on a daily basis. I wasn't even tempted to glance at the other candidates.

That picture is old, from Cold Feet in 2003 when Richard played Lee, the flirty-girty life guard.

BTW, in an article in today's UK Daily Mail, the journalist Jan Moir bemoans the fact that speedos are back in fashion. She might be tempted to change her mind if she had seen Lee in his budgie-smugglers!

fitzg said...

Excellent job, Nat - rallying the fans! Great results to date.

The eyes have it. Miles above the other contestants.

Langford said...

92% Wooo! Go Richard!

DEZMOND said...

for all of you who are wondering how Armitage got into my poll, I must confess I was bribed by Nat with a six figure sum. We all have weak sides ^_^

iz4spunk said...

@Dezmond: I guessed as much since physical armtwisting wasn't possible, I almost feel sorry for the other dudes...almost.

Wondering if this will boost a google search for RA.

Avalon said...

Now Dezmond, Nat was not the only one, I have been on you for months about RA and my other sweetie!

Glad to see he is climbing the polls. Thanks Dezmond for placing him in the category.

Nat, I am going on vacation and will miss your delightful blog. Cant wait to read your review of The Tempest.

kaprekar said...

Agree not keen on the picture, but I've voted (twice so far). Isn't it a bit unfair to inflict the fandom on that poll though? Or are you proving a point? Sorry I don't know who any of those other guys are (not being American y'see). But I expect that most Americans wouldn't know who Mr A is either.

Myrtle said...

I have voted for our boy!!
Will vote every day!!!!

The only other actor I had heard of on that list was Patrick Dempsey. I loved him in "Enchanted" with Amy Adams. I figured he was worth one vote. The AVON company has even designed a signature men's cologne for him!

The other fellows can consider themselves blown....uh....out of the water, I mean....
sorry, couldn't resist....did I really write that?

RAFrenzy said...

I would love to comment on that, but I'm going to be good. :D

Twinkling Moon said...

@Dezmond, well, I for one am glad that bribery works, LOL!

@MillyMe thanks for telling me where the pic of RA in the poll is from. I have seen that on some sites but never knew where it's from. Thanks for solving the mystery :)

@Phylly3, regarding Patrick Dempsey and the cologne at AVON, IIRC, his wife is a stylist and she works or at least did work once upon a time for AVON. So that might explain that connection.

And sorry, I'm not a speedos fan :)
