Orlando Bloom Talks ‘Hobbit’

March 31, 2011 at 11:11 am by xoanon  - 

Orlando Bloomshortlist.com has an interview with Orlando Bloom where they ask him about The Hobbit, check out the pertinent info below and read the whole interview here!

You’re rumoured to be returning as Legolas in The Hobbit. Can you tell us anything about the project?

I wish I could. I would be honoured if I was asked to do it, and I would run to work with Peter Jackson again. I adore him and I’m so excited at the prospect of it. But at this stage, it’s not something I can confirm.

You and the LOTR cast all got matching tattoos during filming — are you still on each other’s Christmas card list?

Yeah, it was a real family affair. I’m still in touch with Billy Boyd [Pippin] — he’s a very sweet man. And I’ve got a card I’m going to put in the mail to Viggo [Mortensen, who played Aragorn, pictured with Bloom above], because I’ve been thinking about how much of an influence he was on me. He’s so dedicated, disciplined and talented. He taught me a lot. And it was only afterwards that I realised it. It’s funny: you look back on these things 10 years later and ask yourself, ‘Who had a major impact on me?’ As an actor, it was Viggo. I was unpacking a load of boxes recently, recounting old memories, and I remembered how lucky I was that he was around me at that time.

Has starring in two of the most successful film franchises of the past decade been overwhelming?

There have been a few moments that have freaked me out. I took my grandmother to the premiere of the second Pirates movie in Leicester Square. That was slightly mad. Getting out of the car, all the energy — and with my grandma being there as well.

    Similar to the interview with Cate Blanchett I have not seen the script!

    Viggo’s last name is “Mortensen”? And he played Aragorn? Oh, thanks. Long-time Lord of the Rings Fan on a site dedicated to, uh, Lord of the Rings and just didn’t know who played Argaorn in the films. But thanks to that addition to your article, now I do.

    Or doesn’t talk Hobbit, rather. Again.

  4. hobby says:

    It’s not something he can confirm-yet it would be an honour to have ”Legolas”back. Like another well known LOTR cast member he has yet to see the script?

    I am pleased indeed that the fellowship did not end with the LOTR movies but continues
