May the 4th… “May the Force”… Because of that play on words, this particular date has been known as Star Wars Day by various pun-loving Jedi-wannabes from here to Naboo. I like Star Wars, and like most people, I prefer the original films, where Yoda was a puppet and not an animation. Where Darth Vader had that James Earl Jones voice and put heavy breathers everywhere to shame. I even like the Ewoks! So there!
Now, as you might know, an actor a lot of us love and are very devoted to was in one of those new films. He’s known to have tried hitting on Keira Knightley in the process (although I personally don’t see why anyone would want to – although, to be fair, didn’t he mistake her for Natalie Portman?) – so let’s recap with a picture of what at least looks to be the most dashing fighter pilot in the galaxy: Mr. Richard Armitage!
A more detailed discussion on exactly where you can probably see Richard Armitage in Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace can be found in the C19 forum. 🙂 (Will require logging in. But it’s worth it – interesting forum for RA fans as well as 19th century literary addicts!)
