Orlando Bloom Confirms His Involvement In The Hobbit
In an exclusive interview with Collider.com, Orlando Bloom confirms he’s been in talks to return as Legolas in Peter Jackson’s upcoming Hobbit films.
Excerpts from the interview follow:
Collider: Are you going to appear in The Hobbit?
Bloom: Yeah, it’s looking like that. I’m really excited about going to see Pete [Jackson] again. It’s still a little up in the air, but the idea of working with Pete is fantastic. I can’t actually really talk too much about it, at this point. I just was given the script to piece through, so it’s quite exciting.
Collider: The whole script?
Collider: Will you have to do anything to physically prepare for that role again?
Bloom: Are you telling me that I’ve put on weight, in the last 10 years? I just have to grow my hair really long and blonde again.
Collider: Isn’t he a younger version?
