Thanks to @sahraobsessed, and Sunshine Coast Daily scroll down to, yep, no. 8 for this little teaser of Richard’s ‘possible’ role, “and Richard Armitage possibly as the token seductive villain.”
We have now uploaded our 3-page transcript of Richard’s Newstalk.com radio interview in which he talks about Pilgrimage, Oceans 8, My Zoe, and Love, Love, Love, to our Library. This is the link to the first page. As usual, you can navigate through the rest of the pages by using the Library’s thumbnails.
Richard has been interviewed by Philip Molloy for The Picture Show, on News Talk. You can listen again, here. He talks about Pilgrimage, Oceans 8, Love, Love, Love, Hannibal, The Crucible and his upcoming project, My Zoe.
Richard’s segment is about 35 minutes in. To find it, when you’ve clicked on The Picture Show option which you’ll find in the calendar section, look to the very top of the screen, underneath the heading at the top (you can see a volume button over on the right). You should be able to see a tiny, red beginning of a line just underneath the heading, over on the left. As the audio moves, you can see it moving, too. You can click your cursor along that line until around halfway through and find Richard’s interview that way.
UPDATE: We’ve recorded Richard’s portion of the interview:
Richard has done several interviews to publicise the release of Berlin Station season 1 on digital platforms, including iTunes. We have done transcripts for many of them. However, because there are a number that, basically, repeat the same questions, we’ve stuck to transcribing those that are a little different. Here are links to:
Kansas City Live (link is to p. 1 of a 2-page transcript and you can use the Library’s thumbnails to move through the rest of the interview)
SideWalks. This interview also touches on North & South and Star Wars: The Phantom Menace. (link is to p. 1 of a 5-page transcript and you can use the Library’s thumbnails to move through the rest of the interview)

Deadline.com has just announced that Richard has joined the cast of the film, Ocean’s Eight.
EXCLUSIVE: British actor Richard Armitage, who’s had roles in Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit franchise and Alice Through The Looking Glass, has joined the cast of Ocean’s Eight.
Details of his character are being kept under wraps but he’s in good company in the female-driven caper with stars Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Awkwafina, Rihanna, Helena Bonham Carter and James Corden.
Gary Ross directs the spinoff for Warner Bros and Village Roadshow Pictures, and it’s produced by Ocean’s Eleven director Steven Soderbergh. Ross wrote the script with Olivia Milch. Susan Ekins is exec producer and Warner Bros production SVP Jesse Ehrman is overseeing the film. Village Roadshow Pictures is co-producing and co-financing the movie as they did with the previous three titles.
Armitage is currently the lead in Olen Steinhauer’s Berlin Station, Epix’s contemporary spy series from Paramount TV and Anonymous Content, which goes into its second season this year. He is also known for his portrayal of the heroic Thorin Oakenshield in Jackson’s Hobbit trilogy.
Armitage also recently wrapped a triumphant run in his New York theater debut of biting comedy Love, Love, Love, at the Roundabout, opposite Amy Ryan and directed by Mike Bartlet. His previous theater work includes starring in Yael Farber’s 2015 production of The Crucible at the Old Vic in London.
He is repped by WME and Sloane Offer as well as United Agents in the UK.
