Mr. Darcy the Bad Guy?


News alert!  our very own Matthew Macfadyen a.k.a. Mr. Darcy has been slated for the role of the Sheriff of Nottingham in Ridley Scott’s new Robin Hood [along with Russell Crowe, Cate Blanchett, Vanessa Redgrave, William Hurt, Kevin Durand and Mark Strong] – but where oh where is Richard Armitage and the dastardly Guy of Gisborne??


[from Episode 5 of Robin Hood, Richard]

  1. Hello Adriana! – nice to hear from you… yes, Mr. Armitage is lovely despite the bad temper – and the whole costume-drama-loving world is disappointed that he will not play Knightley [I just read your post on the new Emma and see you are sorry as well!]- he was made for the role; but alas! we must console ourselves with multiple viewings of North & South – he will always be the perfect John Thornton!
    Thanks for visiting!


  2. Matthew will be able to pull the bad guy role off, but like you I was disappointed that Richard was not chosen for Mr. Knightley. I never was a Johnny Lee Miller fan, so once again I will have a wait and see attitude on this one.


  3. Dear Deb,

    that’s nice to know that you visited our blog!!

    Here in Brazil, the janeites are always discussing about the best Mr. Darcy = Colin X Matthew!

    But, when we talk about Richard Armitage is a kind of mess, because most of us are really addicted! :)

    We do have a board to discuss movies, book and of course the handsome guys!
