A ‘Pirates’ life: Orlando Bloom finds gem of a role in ‘Dead Man’s Chest’

What makes Orlando Bloom happy about reprising the role of Will Turner in “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest”? “Don’t you think he’s a bit more pirate and a bit less of a stick in the mud?” the actor wondered rhetorically. “I hope you do, because that was kind of the intention. There is a dark side to Will that I think sort of evolves a little bit because he starts to assume this pirate thing. It’s like, ‘Who is this pirate?’ ” And this time, he added, the footwear is much better. “I get a pair of boots instead of those little shoes and stockings – which weren’t cool at all.” For Bloom, a return to a hit franchise is familiar. His career was launched as Legolas, the archer in the Oscar-winning “Lord of the Rings” trilogy. But “Pirates,” he pointed out, was never intended as a trilogy; the original movie had lowly origins, inspired not by a Tolkien classic but by the Disneyland amusement-park ride. [More]
