Orlando Bloom will probably come back as Legolas in The Hobbit
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
All the Orlando Bloom fans out there rejoice, because chances are very good that he will be reprising the role (in Peter Jackson’s THE HOBBIT) that made him famous, yes ladies, the good looking Elf that can shoot arrows called Legolas. Along with Cate Blanchett, who will be reprising her role as Galadriel, Bloom will most likely return in a role that is not just a cameo. Word is still out as to whether or not Ian McKellen will return as Gandalf or whether Andy Serkis will return as Gollum but it is likely they will be in the film as well. Shooting will begin in February in New Zealand. THE HOBBIT: PART 1 is set for release in December of 2012 with Martin Freeman leading the cast as Bilbo Baggins.
Maybe a reprisal of Legolas will inject some much needed spark into Orlando Bloom’s career which is too bad because he’s a decent actor. Hmm, now I have the urge to watch the LORD OF THE RINGS trilogy again.
