New Poll: In a Partnership of Director and Actor, Who Would You Like Richard Armitage to Work With

I have a new poll today inspired by Servetus latest post (Me & Richard Armitage) about Richard Armitage and Toshiro Mifune.

The great Japanese, indeed International, actor and star Toshiro Mifune had a long association with great film director Akira Kurasawa.  I thought about how wonderful it would be if Richard Armitage formed an association with a talented film director, either a new director or an established one.  There have been several of these partnerships in film history,  Robert De Niro and Martin Scorsese for example,  and if it works it can be an inspiration for both actor and director.  It would also mean roles developed especially for Richard Armitage. 

I've gone through and thought about some of my favorite directors working now and would love your vote on who you think would form a good creative partnership with Richard Armitage (see poll on the right hand column).  

I've deliberately not included Peter Jackson since RA is working with him now. My list is by no means comprehensive, and I'm certain I've left out some of your favorites or non-English speaking directors that may be doing interesting work. 

I would also love your suggestions in the comments below on other film directors that you would like to see work  and partner with Richard Armitage!  

To help you with the poll choices, below are the director's and a list of some of their films:

1  Danny Boyle :  "Slumdog Millionaire", "172  Hours"

2.  David Fincher: "The Social Network", "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button"

3.  Tom Hooper:  "The King's Speech", "The Damned United"

4. Alejandro González Iñárritu:  "Amores Perros", "Babel" 

5.  Asif Kapadia:  "Far North", "The Warrior"

6..  Ang Lee:  "Sense and Sensibility" ,   "Lust, Caution"

7.  Mira Nair:  "Monsoon Wedding", "Vanity Fair" 

See the poll on the right hand column to vote.   Thank you for voting.
Oh, and while you're voting on my poll, don't forget to go over to The Hunkies and vote for Guy of Gisborne:


  1. Tom Hooper by all means, I loved both THE KING'S SPEECH and his amazing mini series ELIZABETH with Helen Mirren.

  2. I picked Ang Lee, I still think about about "The Ice Storm."

  3. I really have no idea. Haven't seen any of those movies ... except S&S '95. Maybe Ang Lee then? :)

  4. @Traxy Thank you for voting, Ang Lee is a good choice. His S&S is my favorite version of the book.

    @Servetus I think "The Ice Storm" was the first Ang Lee film I saw, or the first time I became aware of him.

    @Dez I also loved Tom Hooper's John Adams TV Series.
