Not Confirmed, but Orlando Bloom Confident About Hobbit Role
MTV caught up with Orlando Bloom yesterday to interview him about his newest movie, Sympathy for Delicious, and of course a lot of the interview centered on his rumored participation in the upcoming Hobbit movies. As we reported months ago, there were rumors of a $1 million deal with Bloom to make a two minute cameo in the movie. The deal never became official and many have wondered if it was no longer. Bloom seems to disagree. When asked if he was going to participate in the movie, he said:
“I’m going to bet on it, but I can’t really talk too much about it because it’s still sort of in the ether. But I would love to go back to work with Peter Jackson. It would be an honor.”
When asked if he’s ready to get back into that famous wig and those prosthetic ears, Bloom said he’s happy to put on anything and everything Jackson requires:
“I’ll do anything for him,” he said.
He obviously knows something we do not. At any rate, that must make many of you lady Tolkien fans to know that Legolas will most likely be back with his long blonde locks of hair and bow and arrow. We will make sure to keep you posted when this is official.
