"I'd rather be a could-be if I cannot be an are; because a could-be is a maybe who is reaching for a star. I'd rather be a has-been than a might-have-been, by far; for a might have-been has never been, but a has was once an are."
- Milton Berle
A few lucky ladies have recently had a chance to visit the set of the film 'Black Sky' in Michigan (USA) and to meet Richard Armitage. Pictures of Richard with his arm around a fan and smiling brightly to the camera have been all of the web in the past few weeks. How thoughtful of Richard to make some time in his busy filming schedule to come out and say hello to his fans. You're a true gentleman, Mr. A!
When the husband of one of these ladies mentioned that this would be his very first picture with a movie star, Richard's reply was: "I'm no movie star..."
Oh dear, sweet, Mr. Armitage, humble and modest as ever!
If you're not a movie sar yet, you definitely will be one once the world gets to know Thorin Oakenshield and when they realise that you are the real star of this film (of all 3 of them, if you ask me, but I admit that my judgement may not be completely objective).

You may not be a movie star in your own mind yet, this picture sure makes you look like one... Clooney who?
