Poll Party Time!

After checking my calendar, it was all filled up for the month of August so I’ll post our collaborative challenge next week. However, I couldn’t resist doing two polls today! I’ve been conjecturing and wondering a few things so I thought it would be fun to share my questions with you.

Some of you have expressed a preference among Richard Armitage in a beard, stubble or the clean-shaven look. Well I have been thinking about what type of facial hair Richard Armitage’s character will have in the tornado movie which is now filming in Detroit.

Here’s your first poll: What facial hair will RA wear in the tornado movie?

I am also curious whether Richard Armitage will use his British accent or an American accent in his role in the tornado film. Can you predict?

Here’s your second poll: Which accent will Richard Armitage use in the tornado movie?

Have fun guessing! I’ll share my poll answers tomorrow. I’m in the minority about 90% of the time, LOL! πŸ˜€

P.S. Look for our challenge announcement on Monday.

    Both are good questions to ponder. I’d like beardy and British, thank you!

    I wonder if the 3rd Hobbit film will impact the cast much in their searches for new roles as they will need to fit in publicity junkets for yet another movie. We live in interesting times!

  2. phylly3 says:

    I went for clean-shaven and British as that would be my preferance, but I bet I’m wrong anout both!
    Nice to see you back!

  3. Faboamanto says:

    I hope stubble and British, but I fear he’ll have an American accent.
    If he shaves, now that we have Hobbit movie #3 will he have to grow the beard back when they start filming again? (I love the beard, but I miss the stubble).

  4. WoW! I’m with the majority on this poll yay!!!! That’s a first for me πŸ˜€ Although my votes express my wishes and not the result of a reasonable thinking on the character. I love the beard but miss the stubble and I looooooooooooooooooove his british accent.

  5. tyme4t says:

    I think it will be “Stubble amongst the Rubble”!!!!
    As long as he on the big screen – I don’t care – I hope he has to wear eyeglasses in the movie!!! 😎

  6. jazzbaby1 says:

    If it’s a “found footage” movie I think there’ll be a bit of dramatic facial hair growth so I went with 2 of the three and I think he’ll attempt an American accent.

  7. love4ot says:

    I think he’ll be clean shaven but after tragedy hits and he searches for his son, his facial hair will grow, blessing us with rich thick beauty. I selected his British accent because as much as I love him, his American accent needs work and the Brit will come out anyway. Very fun poll for “Twister of Love” (Bccmee working title…).

  8. I think that in order to be different from the Thorin character, he should be clean-shaven,so this is my option and of course,with british accent.

    • bccmee says:

      @Tereza: Oooh good reasons for your answers! Good luck in the poll! Maybe I’ll make another blog post when the first interview or picture comes out.

  9. The first choice is what I would like to see. That would be clean and stubble.
    The second choice is also what I would prefer; his own British accent. If the producers want to attract the female crowd, they will go with MY choices. πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰

    • bccmee says:

      @Jeannie Gisborne: Maybe he’ll need to ride horseback in the course of his rescue mission too, LOL! πŸ˜‰ Good point about the female fanbase. *giggle*

  10. Lizzie Howell says:

    I’d like stubble and British – let’s face it, if you’re stumbling around after a tornado you won’t have had time to shave!!

    • bccmee says:

      @Lizzie: Maybe he carries a travel grooming kit, LOL! It does seem to make sense that he won’t be able to shave at times in the movie. πŸ˜€

  11. vec170203 says:

    I want stubble and british accent, please πŸ™‚

  12. Ania says:

    I’d like that he had a stubble and a British accent.:) But I think just like love4ot, his facial hair will grow.:)

  13. Teuchter says:

    Much as I miss the stubble I’ve also grown to love the beard which surprised me as I didn’t take to it at first sighting – maybe because it was only partially grown? My reasoning behind voting that the beard will still be there in this movie is because I think it does give him a more mature look and as he is to play the part of a widower with, I understand, two teenaged sons, I think that “look” will be necessary. Somehow when he is clean-shaven he can look incredibly boyish! πŸ™‚

    BTW – I was happy to see that the “sons” are two good-looking lads as well! πŸ˜€

    • bccmee says:

      @Teuchter: I agree that RA looks older with the beard. When he’s well-scrubbed and closely shaven he looks boyish. Maybe he can play a dual role, LOL!

  14. IngeD3 says:

    I would love for the beard to stay a (long) while, but went for clean-shaven in the film because he’s playing a dad… Don’t know if that makes any sense, it’s just a feeling…Although Teuchter is saying the exact opposite in her comment – I hope she’s right!!

    British accent, please!! I think there’s more tolerance for different accents these days, even in very American films, so I hope they will allow him keep the accent that still makes me shiver with delight every time the man speaks!

    Great questions, I’m looking forward to the results!

    • bccmee says:

      @IngeD3: Maybe the tornado will blow off his beard along with his shirt and tattoo! *giggle* Yes, we have all cultures in North America, so there’s no reason RA can’t keep his British accent. Time will tell….

  15. Hi Bccmee!
    I hope that he’ll start out clean shaven–not because I dislike the beard, but as someone said above to distinguish his look from his Thorin profile–and then go stubbly as events conspired to keep him from shaving. Ha!
    And I want to hear RA’s velvety British Baritone accent. I work at a university and we have people from around the world. So it is not inconceivable that a British bloke comes to the States to live and work. Ha!
    Cheers! Grati ;->
    P.S. And yea as well, for my being with the majority this time!

    • bccmee says:

      @Gratiana: Yes, RA could certainly keep his accent while working in the states! Hugh Grant always keeps *his* British accent. Maybe RA can do the same. πŸ˜‰ Woohoo for being in the majority! πŸ˜€

  16. Holliday says:

    I chose the beard, though I was thinking maybe he was going to go for a goatee in this new flick. That way if he still needs the beard for further filming of The Hobbit, it wouldn’t take long to get the whole thing back. Although, without the beard he seems to be perpetually stubbly, so I doubt it would be a problem if he did shave it and have to grow it back.

    I chose the British accent. I heard one of his attempts at an American accent and it needed work. Unless he was working on it while in NZ, I’m thinking he’s going with the British one. Which is perfectly fine by me. I LOVE his natural accent. I don’t know if I would like hearing him with an American one.

    • bccmee says:

      @Holliday: Hadn’t really thought of a goatee although I did make one in Tanni Tani’s “Shave Richard” game, LOL! That would be an interesting choice. You’re absolutely right that he is seldom clean-shaven in his roles. The man seems to be able to sprout stubble at a moment’s notice and a beard in a few days. β™₯ I do wonder about his accent in this tornado movie and future roles…. Hugh Laurie does a great job with his so maybe he can coach RA. πŸ˜‰

      • Holliday says:

        Hugh Laurie does an awesome American accent. But if Hugh isn’t available, I would be more than happy to volunteer to coach him.

      • Judit says:

        Isn’t Hugh Laurie touring with his jazz or blues band or whatever around the US at the moment? Meaning, he is probably too busy to coach our darling Richard. So there’s an opening for Holliday… πŸ™‚

        • bccmee says:

          @Judit: Hehe, I wonder if there are any other volunteers to tutor Richard Armitage? He could gain regional accents all across North America. πŸ˜‰

  17. Michele R. says:

    I love Richard clean shaven, stubble and the beard ( as long as there is no stubble on the neck). But for the tornado movie it has to be the stubble. Because when would a man have the time and the razor to shave? As for the accent I originally thought American, because I don’t hear to much about tornadoes in England. Then I decided Richard’s character could have married an American ( I volunteer for that part ) and moved to America, thus keeping his English accent.

  18. Teuchter says:

    Another thought occurred to me. He has by all accounts been hanging around with Lee Pace so maybe he has been able to perfect his American accent with him! πŸ™‚ I would naturally prefer him to keep his English accent though, as he always sounds so wonderful.

  19. LOVE this! I’m losing in the poll πŸ™‚ can’t wait what the REAL results will be!

  20. Beachbaby says:

    I opted for clean shaven, despite being a a lover of the beard. New character needs a new image. Looking at the pics from comic-con I think his current hairstyle also makes him look older. He has grown his hair longer on top, maybe in preparation for the new role?
    As for accent, I’m hoping it stays British but expecting it to be American.
    Now……time to go back to studying those pics……….. LOL

    • bccmee says:

      @Beachbaby: I don’t know when RA was cast in the tornado movie so perhaps he was already preparing his “look.” πŸ˜€ I also wonder how large his role will be. Have fun studying the pics! They’re favorites of mine. β™₯

  21. Joanna says:

    All one to me. Richie will perform on the big screen!:D ..and he’ll not be a shaggy gnome!.;)
    Thanks Bccmee!:*

  22. bccmee says:

    @Everyone: Okay, here are my votes: 2 out of 3 facial hairs and American accent. These are not necessarily my preferences but they are my predictions. Hope we find out soon! πŸ˜€

  23. Brooke says:

    I wish this was called “Tornado of Love.” The plot doesn’t appeal to me right now and that fake title is very amusing. Haha.
    I assume an American accent because often we acquire a certain way of speaking when we live somewhere for so long. RA is very committed in stepping into a character’s world and life, so if they want him to sound like an American, he will.
    I just don’t want it coming out horribly like the Minnesotan accents in the movie, “Fargo.” Now I am getting awful flashbacks from that movie I can’t stand. Hehe.

  24. Brooke says:

    I will accept him with facial hair as long as it doesn’t become a reason for me to use the word gross in my daily thoughts. Some facial hair styles would look bad on him. A mustache is one of them.

  25. Mezz says:

    Somehow I missed this so I’m late to the (poll) party! I voted for 2 out of 3, because I think in the aftermath of a tornado a man looking for his son wouldn’t be worrying about shaving, and for the accent, British. Partly out of hope, and also, as Grati says above, it’s not unrealistic that a British teacher would be working and living in the States. πŸ™‚

    • bccmee says:

      @Mezz: Thanks so much for your comment. πŸ˜€ Yes, I also voted for 2 of 3. I would prefer Richard Armitage’s British accent of course. β™₯

  26. april73 says:

    I have choose clean-shaven with a British accent… but I also like stubbles… πŸ™‚
