Sir Peter Jackson’s secretive manner in which he is keeping The Hobbit movie cast is leading to confusion and extreme withdrawals on the part of many fans. Nowhere is this more obvious than with the fans of Richard Armitage and Aidan Turner. Granted these men do have some similar features: close in height, dark hair, beards, but the similarities end there.
In the latest vlog released, number 6, much speculation has occurred between the fans of each actor as to who is who in the vlog. Obviously, Aidan fans can enjoy his brief interview under an umbrella but aside from that instance there is speculation as to other sightings. Such as the thought that Kili (Aidan) is on a horse in the vlog. There is much debate amongst fans of Richard Armitage over whether the dwarf in a barrel is him or Aiden. See pics 7, 8 along with comments…. While the author will not present personal feelings on identification, it should be noted that it is Thorin (Richard Armitage) on the horse.
Fans of both men are, on the whole, normally adjusted men and women who are able to live their day to day lives quite successfully. To have difficulty recognizing the object of their lust can only be attributed to extreme stress and withdrawals. If Sir Peter Jackson would kindly release a bit more of his actors some of this confusion may settle down and fandom can return to normal along with the fans able to return to their daily lives being able to recognize their respective squees. If fans remain in this extreme state of confusion, the fear exists that this confusion will spill over into their day to day lives causing waves of vehicle accidents, increases of on-the-job accidents and eventually mass hysteria along with the confusion. For the sake of public health across the globe, Sir Peter Jackson needs to re-think his lock and key strategy.
PS- Shout out to my boy Andrew brown suit, you better be in the next vlog!
