Photo Friday ~ Something Old, Something New

An oldie, but goodie from 2005:

Current "Strike Back" publicity:
Richard Armitage Net featured a link to Daniel Kennedy's blog (the photographer),
showing how he photographed Richard and Orla separately,
then photoshopped them together.  If you haven't already, check it out HERE.

Does anyone else find the fill-in models hilarious?
The expression on Richard's partner in particular made me laugh out loud!

If I were to do a caption contest for the "before" photos (although I'm not)
what caption would you contribute for Richard, Orla or their fill-ins?

The girl filling for Orla with Richard is thinking...

"My one opportunity to have my photo taken with this hunk and I have 'cutout & remove' written all over me!"

"Richard! your standing on my toes!!"


" the smell of Old Spice is killing me!"

Bzirk - Have you read the article (RA online - May -Readers Digest) you might find the last sentence funny!!

Model with Richard: "When they said the guy from Robin Hood, I was expecting longer hair."

Model with Orla: "I need to move to London to get better gigs!"

MillyMe said...

Orla's stand-in: When they said Richard Armitage I was expecting a hunky US senator, not some bloke from East Dulwich!

Richard's stand-in: Oh to be in England now that April's here!

Have a nice weekend!

The girl with Richard is thinking:
WHAT is he doing with his HAND?!!

Richard is thinking: I can grab her bottom and no one will know the difference!

No caption is forthcoming for Orla's shot except I notice that he changed the angle of her cleavage and added more boob! LOL

Sue said...

The standin-for Orla Brady in the photo with Richard looks absolutely petrified don't you think?(They never did remove those creases from his shirt either did they?)

Perhaps she's thinking "I wish Richard was wearing his jeans and hadn't decided to don Lee's speedos instead! It's very distracting all this, I don't know where to look, well er ...I do, if you know what I mean but daren't for fear of fainting!"

As for Orla Brady with her stand-in "What a waste of time, I deliberately decide to show a bit of cleavage for the cameras and what do they give me to pose with? Another woman? Tell me is that a waste or what? I'd much rather be putting my hand around Richard's peaches any day!

@phylly3 - do you think RA is that "cheeky"? Wouldn't it be great to find out? - teehee

flandersdreamer said...

Orla: "Oh please! Not another pic! He still hasn't taken a shower after the shoots!"

Girl stand-in: "Richard Armitage ... no, don't think it ... Richard. Armitage. No, forget it's him. Think of someone else. Richard. R I C H A R D !!!!
Oh, I'm sick, I'm going to faint!"

Richard: "When can I please go home and collapse on the couch with a nice beer?"

Nat at RA FanBlog said...

Gone to read the rest of the article,but I see they got in skiing and berserking in the last few lines. Sounds like a good match to me. :D

Twinkling Moon said...

Thanks for your funny comments ladies, you all crack me up!

got couple of quick questions. first, is SB suppose to be a new tv show, or just a miniseries? i assumed it was suppose to be a miniseries with a definite end which has already taped. Am i wrong?

Also, I didn't realize Orla Brady lived in the States, as I feel like I've seen her in more UK-related stuff. Am I wrong? is she in alot of US-based stuff and I am just ignorant of it?

The girl with Richard haven't seen N&S or any of his other work. I´m sure. Otherwise she wouldn't have stood there and looked so indifferent:-)

Maike said...

I think the storyline loosely based on Chris Ryan's book will come to an end in the series, so it could be a stand alone. But there is talk that they would like to do more stories about John Porter, send him to otger regions of the world where is trouble, and Richard seems to be willing, too. Depends on how well it does.

RAFrenzy said...

I would love to help it do well, but initially I'll have to watch this show through unorthodox means. Bummer.

*Chica Popcorn* said...

hey hi Nat!! look like i brought:

Richard's characters in a south parl style:






Have a nice day!

Phylly3 said...

Hahaha! Chicapopcorn -- those Southpark characters are so funny! Gisborne and Porter look so badass! And Harry is Dorktastic!

bZirk said...

ROFLOL!!! Those are great, Chica!

@Rob said...

The model with RA: OMG is this Hugh Jackman?

The model with Orla: I know Englishmen are a bit feminine, but this is ridiculous.

fitzg said...

RA is FEMININE??? Or are you thinking of Sean Bean? heehee.....Good one, Rob.
