It is not the strength of the body that counts, but the strength of the spirit.
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Amount of Sass
Vicious, coming soon to ITV.
Sir Ian McKellen poses in the press room with the Best Science Fiction/Fantasy award for ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’ at the Jameson Empire Awards 2013 at Grosvenor House
There is so much going on in this photo that I almost didn’t notice Richard’s shoes. He’s wearing Crocs. Why, Richard, why?!?!
A.) Martin looks like a …I don’t even know what, but it’s like the 80’s/ Michael Jackson’s wardrobe threw up on him.
B.) Ian McKellen is wearing a skirt? Or half of the Gandalf costume but I prefer skirt.
C.) Armitage looks like Assassins Creed retired and is walking out to get the morning paper.
Stick a cigarette in Martin’s mouth and a fishing pole in his hands and he’s the very spit and image of my great uncle Les in about half of my mother’s family vacation photos from the 1950’s. I’ve made this observation before, I’m sure, when he’s been similarly attired; it’s just never given me pause until so many other people either stated or concurred that he looks like a pimp.
Mostly reblogging for the Assassin’s Creed bit, though. Perhaps the most fortuitous thing that’s happened all day is that I’d swallowed my Cheerios before I read that.
